How Conveyors Reduce Costs, Improve Health and Safety and MAXimise tons
Let the team at MAX Plant help you with your conveyor needs
Costing projects before you begin is a long extensive process, and as we all know saving money, meeting budget and making profits is always at the fore front. Two major costs that can be overlooked in the planning process are;
- The time taken by a FEL to do the job of a conveyor; and
- Equipment Capital Cost and other direct costs in relation vs a conveyor.
Reducing earth moving equipment in most cases will improve you competitiveness by increasing your bottom line by reducing costs and improving health and safety.
Capital cost, labour costs and direct operating costs attached to operating loaders can be significantly reduced with the correct conveyor set-up. Outlaying money to replace equipment can be over looked in cost reductions and profit maximisations. On site earth moving equipment can be seen as the best option, though high costs associated with energy, labour, maintenance and onsite risks is normally the outcome. Replacing earthmoving equipment with MAX Plant conveyors that are built to Australian Mining standards and international structural standards increases safety on site, not only a smooth operations but significate reductions in upfront capital costs and also major reductions in long-term operating costs.
Health and Safety
Replacing loaders and excavators for conveyors reduces your onsite risk. Health and safety for site workers is at the forefront of every site. Studies clearly show that over 41% of accidents occur due to operation of vehicles. The right conveying system can reduced noise, reduced emissions levels, reduced dust and reduce accidents due to less operating equipment and movement on site.
Using FEL’s to move material from one location to the next causes degradation of the product, this may be an increase of fines in a lump product, compaction of product in a stockpile or separation of blended products, replacing loaders and installing the appropriate conveyor or conveyors reduces your chances of product degradation.
