Design and Selection of Bulk Material Handling Equipment and Systems: Mining, Mineral Processing, Port, Plant and Excavation Engineering (In 2 Volumes)

Jayanta Bhattacharya (Editor)

Bulk material handling comprises of 50-70% of the work in many industrial processes. Yet, there is, arguably not a single book that discusses the different aspects of such engineering in an integrated fashion, useful for designers ,selectors and users. Put simply, this is probably the first book in so many years to discuss the recent developments and new research in the fields of bulk material handling comprehensively in dedicated chapters. The clues to rationalize capital expenditure and cut losses in operation lie in understanding the processes of design and selection of material handling system as well as the aspects of associated constructional, safety and reliability engineering, related to them.

Twelve longs chapters, brought out in two volumes, have been contributed by a select group of globally acclaimed experts.The books, Design and Selection of Bulk Material Handling Equipment and System (volumes-I and II) provide industrial designers, engineers, operations managers and students a wide coverage of contemporary in-depth knowledge of the subject - cutting across various industrial sectors. Two of the world’s leading bulk material handling equipment manufacturers have also participated in the work.

Each standardized brings out a specific subject and deals with it quite comprehensively to draw in, both initiated and un-initiated readers. Extensive use of charts, figures and tables in the texts would make design and selection of appropriate material handling equipment and system easier indeed, for mines, mineral processing plants and ports.

Some topics in nutshell

Belt and pneumatic conveying design; excavator, stacker and reclaimer, surface miners design, selection and application; modelling and commissioning of motor drives for belt conveyors; testing and examination of the causes of equipment damages ; high pressure grinding roll technology; equipment related injuries; reliability and maintainability of equipment, aspects of ore degradation during handling, and modelling; specific energy requirement measurement ; managing variation in mines and plants; mine and excavation design.
