Mining Rail System custom engineered for Canadian gold mining company

Handling Specialty received a purchase order from a major mining company including an electric cart, skid and levelling blade assembly.

These three parts work in tandem to move raw product from a loading area to be weighed. The skid assembly (track) is located in the loading/unloading area of a BC mining facility. The cart is set on the rails of the skid and loaded with their shipping container. The container is then loaded from an overhead chute as the cart is progressed. The levelling blade assembly is used to level out the load for accuracy when weighing.

With the loaded container at the weighing station the container is lowered onto the four corner scales on the electric cart. Once weighed, the results show on the stationary control panel’s HMI screen and the container is lifted again and moved back to the loading position to receive more material.

The cart, when moved to the unloading area at the other end of the skid, follows the trackage of the skid resulting in the cart rotating 90 degrees so its container can be lifted away by their overhead crane.

The mining rail system can be operated via a handheld pendant or the stationary control panel.
