Since the early 1980s, the HAC system has proven itself to be a versatile and money-saving method for elevating or lowering materials continuously from one level to another at extremely steep angles. Over the years, the HAC system has been successfully used in a variety of commercial applications, conveying a wide range of materials. These have included coal, tunnel muck, gravel, wood chips, copper ore, gypsum, slag, excavated silts, sands, clay, grains, refuse and municipal sludge, among other materials.

Use our Ready Reckoner tool to create quick, high-level CAPEX and OPEX estimates for HAC systems and surface feeder-breakers in open pit mining applications. With just a few key pieces of information, you can generate capital and operating costs as well as power requirements. You can then use this information in the planning and development of new mining projects. 

HAC System

  • Uses standard idlers and rolls for greater availability of these replacement components
  • Ideal option for steep angle applications

HAC System for Tunneling

  • Ideal for both mining and industrial applications, including handling of wet or sticky materials
  • May be shortened or lengthened for a new location

HAC System in Open Pit Mining

  • Increase haulage equipment utilization and efficiency
  • Maintain material handling flexibility
