Bulk Materials Handling

Bulk material handling is centred on the creation of equipment used for the handling of dry materials in bulk form, such as ores, coal, cereals, wood chips, sand, gravel and stone. The purpose of bulk material handling equipment is usually to transport materials from several sources to a final destination. However, bulk materials handling can also be applied to storage and inventory control. Bulk Materials Handling encompasses all of the following equipment: conveyor belts, screw conveyors, railcar dumpers, wagon tipplers, tubular drag conveyors, moving floors, toploaders, stackers, bucket elevators, reclaimers, diverters, truck dumpers, stackers, shiploaders, hoppers, mobile hopper loaders and unloaders and various shuttles (like storage silos). Industries that use bulk materials handling include agricultural, mining (with continuous underground systems) and logistics with overland haulage, terminals, stockyards and port facilities.
