Smart Material Handling solutions are available for a wide range of applications to help increase haulage equipment utilization and efficiency, while maintaining material handling flexibility.

Primary crushers or feeder-breakers are utilized to process material in the pit. HAC systems elevate properly sized material from the pit to overland conveyors for processing. 

A HAC system can convey material at very steep angles, high lifts and capacities over 8,000 MTPH, saving you up to 50% in material handling costs.  

When compared to other crushing solutions, Joy feeder-breakers offer:

  • Lower equipment cost
  • Lower installation and relocation cost because the low profile and earthworks hopper reduce or eliminate civil works
  • The ability to easily handle typical run-of-mine material
  • Mobility options are available

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 feasibility projects and greenfield mine planning.
