ASI Bulk Material Handling Products

Belt conveyors are the preferred option to transport bulk material due to their ability to transport a large variety of materials from point to point and through processing. They can handle material that varies by size and composition, with belt widths ranging from 12" to 200".

Benefits of belt conveyors include:

  • Lower labor cost than alternative means of transportation
  • Conveying a variety of materials
  • Wide range of capacities
  • Adaptability of path including terrain
  • Steep angle conveying
  • Flexible loading and discharging of materials
  • Reduced environmental impact, air and noise pollution
  • Lower energy costs than alternative means of transportation
  • Safety, thanks to minimal manual interfaces required
  • Reliability, that comes with the simplicity of fewer moving parts than other conveyor systems

Belt conveyors can be used in a myriad of applications, including:

  • Steep incline conveyors, including pocket belts, tube conveyors and sandwich belts moving vertically
  • Decline conveyors (which can capture regenerative energy)
  • Loading, discharging and stockpiling functions
  • Reversing conveyors
  • Horizontal curve conveyors

Apron Conveyors

Also called steel belts or pan conveyors. Used where severe loading, impact, and abrasion resistance is required.

Belt Feeders

Belt feeders are used to control the rate of delivery of material and are most commonly used in conjunction with a storage facility. Alternative feeders include:

  • Vibratory Feeders
  • Drag Scraper Feeders
  • Apron Feeders
  • Screw Feeders
  • Rotary Vane, Rotary Drum and Rotary Table Feeders
  • Traveling Rotary Plow Feeders

Belt feeders can run between 5 and 150 feet per minute, with belt widths ranging from 12 to 200 inches.

Bucket Elevators

Buckets attached to belts or chains based on a standardized design format to lift material vertically. Bucket elevators are most commonly used to convey all free-flowing, powdered bulk solids. They can also be designed for fragile materials to minimize product damage. Another use is to handle light fluffy materials where aeration of the product must be avoided.

Chutes and Diverter Gates

Chutes

ASI's fixed or telescopic chutes can be assembled in our shop into the most complete components possible to reduce field work, which helps improve the systems. overall manufacturing and installation quality, as well as reducing installation time on the schedule.

Diverter Gates

ASI diverter gates can also be fully shop assembled and tested for the same reasons we assemble chutes.

DEM Chutes

Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) Chutes are used to reduce dust, increase belt life, increase production capacities, and reduce equipment/liner wear. Using material flow software, we can design chutes to meet your needs by modeling a wide range of material types, sizes, flow rates, and moisture content.

Drag Conveyors

Drag conveyors are designed to move material by means of enclosed chain flights dragging material along round or flat bottoms with horizontal, inclined or S-shaped profiles.

Dust Collection

Working with dust collection or suppression manufactures, ASI can provide a dust-management system for your material handling needs. ASI can provide the latest in active or passive dust collection systems.

Hoppers and Bins

As a turn-key system provider, we can design, manufacture and install hoppers, bins and other bulk material system accoutrements. For example, we can ensure chutes are designed and heated to allow for the free flow of bulk material with freezing tendencies, such as Powder River Basin (PRB) coal. Our engineering team also works with our customers to design hoppers that meet your through-put requirements and grizzlies that work in conjunction with other material delivery systems such as train cars, dump trucks and bulldozers.

Pneumatic Conveying Equipment

Conveying equipment and systems designed for moving of solids suspended in, or forced by a gas stream, through horizontal and vertical pipes.

Screw Conveyors

Including vertical lifts and mixing units. Bulk material handling challenges are not a problem with screw conveyor augers. Virtually any material can be delivered with the right screw conveyor system. Materials conveyed can be abrasive, wet or dry, corrosive, sticky or viscous, light or heavy, hot or cold.

Stacker and Reclaim Conveyors

Stacker and reclaim conveyors are available in a number of configurations and are often used to actively manage storage piles. This system typically contains belt conveyors, trippers, feeders and chutes. Discharge chutes on stacker conveyors may be telescopic to reduce dusting.

Tripper Conveyors

Trippers are used to discharge bulk material from the belt conveyor. Trippers can be stationary or movable.

  • Stationary trippers are used when the discharge needs to occur in the same place.
  • Movable trippers are most appropriately used to load large stockpiles or bunkers to spread the material over a larger area than can be accommodated by a stationary tripper.
  • Movable trippers have a frame mounted on flanged wheels, which engage rails parallel to the belt conveyor.

Vibrating Equipment and Feeders

Conveying machines that transport material using an oscillating or vibrating motion. Used where severe loading, impact, and abrasion resistance is required.

Washdown Systems

Washdown systems are an effective means of housekeeping to keep your facility in compliance with the new National Emphasis Program (NEP) on combustible dust. These systems are custom designed to suit your needs, from a manual operation to a fully automatic system.
