Aggregates are the core material behind nearly all infrastructure and building construction. Without these resources — cement powder, potash, gravel, sand, lime rock and more — today’s construction industry would not be possible. When working with aggregates and other granular components, reliable, high-performance conveyors are critical for efficient, fast and productive material handling.
Aggregates are typically transported in bulk, in order to maximize shipping value. However, even relatively small portions of aggregate material are heavy, and thus inefficient to haul over longer distances via truck. For this reason, rail transit is typically enlisted for lengthy trips, with transfer to and from trucks for “last mile” delivery. A versatile, high-quality aggregate conveyor is key to ensuring that this process remains cost-effective.
Portable aggregate conveyors provide the versatility needed to load and unload granular materials from rail to truck, truck to rail, or truck to truck — and any combination that may be necessary for efficient material handling. No matter what resources you have to move, Schnell Industries can provide the right aggregate conveyor systems for your operation.
