Advanced Bulk Material Handling Systems

Advanced Bulk Material Handling Systems


For material handling, Fluor uses both in-house and third-party commercially available technology to design high capacity crushing and conveying systems for use in mines and trans-shipment terminals. This expertise includes the design of long conveyor systems.

The breadth and depth of Fluor’s material handling experience allows a client to use various strategies for implementing material handling projects. Fluor can undertake complete detail design of material handling systems including detail design of conveyors. Alternatively, Fluor can develop conceptual and basic engineering designs for detail design and supply by equipment suppliers.

Fluor’s ability to develop detail designs for long complex overland conveyor systems provides the opportunity to optimize both cost and schedule without dependence on equipment vendors.

Client Benefits

Clients can benefit from Fluor’s ability to develop unique solutions for specific challenges as demonstrated in the original development of the “direct dump” semi-mobile crusher station concept; development of a new design for a specialized rotary breaker for use in processing oil sand; design of a proportional feeder for accurate division of coarse ore from one high capacity conveyor to two downstream conveyors.
