Conveyed goods

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Objects that are transported with a conveyor system are referred to as conveyed goods . The respective conveyor systems must be adapted to the specific nature of the conveyed goods (for bulk goods, for example: bulk density, density, angle of slope, grain size, moisture content). Conveyed goods can be anything that occurs in industrial production, for example food , cans , bottles .

A distinction is made between general cargo such as boxes, sacks, pallets and bulk goods such as grain, coal, gravel and mud.

In mining, the raw materials that are mined above or below ground are called conveyed goods . Conveyed goods include lignite , hard coal , ore , potash and rock salt .
