Efficiency and equipment durability are key to improving your material handling processes for powdered or pulverized minerals and ores. Many companies in your industry find that the demanding characteristics of minerals really do not fit the design parameters of their conveying equipment. At Hapman we engineer heavy-duty into every product we make and work closely with you to achieve the performance results you want – guaranteed.
We offer a variety of conveyor choices that move your bulk powders and solids in directions others cannot perform. A choice of tough finishes, heavy-duty augers, long-lasting conveyor material options ensure equipment durability that minimizes downtime. Computerized controls regulate transfer speeds and discharge rates so there are less work stoppages to clear clogs. We’ll show you how to convey material greater distances without degradation or segregation, if that's important to your process. Our completely sealed systems minimize dusting, prevent product spillage and contamination problems, too.
We make several of our models portable so one conveyor does the work of two or three. Small footprints, installation flexibility and custom configurations eliminate the need to force fit our equipment into your process and let you maximize your production space. Dust collectors eliminate the expense of auxiliary fans and filters. And all Hapman products minimize cleaning and maintenance time.
Hapman’s more than 10,000 global installations have solved some of material handling’s biggest challenges:
And those solutions have helped to create a full line of material handling and conveyor equipment that you can use individually or as a system:

Case Study: Stillwater Mining Improves Smelting Efficiency and Yield, Eliminates Dust with Tubular Drag Conveyor
Stillwater Mining was challenged with maintaining constant temperatures in a smelting furnace to ensure efficient extraction. Also, to create a safe, environmentally friendly process for dumping bulk bags of carbon dust.
White Paper: How to Get the Most Out of Your Flexible Screw Conveyor
Increasing Conveyor Performance and Efficiency
Due to their relatively low cost and simple construction, flexible screw conveyors are one of the most common types of conveyors used by manufacturers. The reason for this is that the screw is the only part of the conveyor that moves. The only other major components are the tubular housing, and the electric motor that drives the screw (also called the auger).
