Everyday new roads are being paved, homes are being built and skyscrapers are constructed. The demand for sand, stone, gravel and cement keeps the aggregate industry striving for higher productivity.
Belterra’s mobile splicing crews are able to travel to remote locations. This portable crusher is crushing material from the side of a mountain to be trucked away and later used as highway fill. These are tough and abusive applications and require proper care in selecting the right belt for the application. A cover compound that offers superior cut and gouge resistance, with a carcass that is resistant to punctures is crucial to the success of this operation.
The Sea to Sky Highway is one of Canada’s outstanding road building projects. The highway upgrade included widening, straightening and adding additional passing lanes for a twisting 100 kilometers of mountain highway. Belterra ‘s involvement to supply conveyor belt and mobile, reliable services was crucial to the ongoing success and completion of this project for the 2010 Olympic Games.
