Conveyor System Design
Design of a conveyor system focused on proper major component selection through design trade-off studies and customer feedback.
Conveyor Dynamic Analysis
Avoid common conveyor design flaws such as belt sag and drive slip by accurately modeling the starting and stopping of a conveyor while accounting for the change in stretch of the belt.
Conveyor Design Audits
Have an independent conveyor expert review a conveyor design to ensure design quality and identify potential improvements.
Horizontal Curve Analysis
OCC has been directly involved with safely implementing hundreds of conveyor applications utilizing horizontal curves along its routing. OCC has the experience and technical ability to determine how and when to implement safe and reliable horizontal curves within a conveyor design.
Transfer Chute Design
The simulation of bulk materials flowing through transfer chutes is one of the most difficult engineering problems conveyor engineers face. OCC pioneered the use of DEM in belt conveyor transfer design. We know what the problems are and how to solve them.
Pipe Conveyor Design
OCC has significant experience designing and evaluating pipe conveyors utilizing its proprietary power calculation methodology. We will work with qualified belt manufacturers to ensure a belt with the proper stiffness is selected for your specific project.
Conveyor Forensics and Failure Analysis
OCC can provide an independent and expert analysis into why and how conveyor issues occur. From component faliures to dynamic starting and stopping issues, OCC has the expertise to get the conveyor up and running again, and avoiding problem reoccurrences.
Budgetary and Feasibility Studies
OCC can provide an initial conveyor design for your project. Whether you need a study of the best route to travel form point A to B, a simple order-of-magnitude cost, or a detailed Net Present Cost analysis of your project, OCC has the expertise to guide you through the technical decisions to create a viable project.
Survey and Assessments
If conveyor downtime is eating into your production, a plant wide audit might reveal some simple changes that could have huge benefits. Or perhaps one or two problems always seem to pop up at regular intervals. OCC can help identify and eliminate these issues.
