CLEAN & EFFICIENT
Highly Efficient. Fully Electric. Vastly Cleaner than any Competing Technology.
The design of the Railveyor system has led to a solution that is nearly unmatched in terms of physical and energy efficiency, with payload-to-weight ratios matching (or exceeding) comparable conveyors. The use of drive stations instead of locomotives means that energy is used to move the payload rather than an unnecessarily heavy onboard drive mechanism. And by utilizing steel wheels rolling on steel tracks, we leave rubber-tired trucks in the dust when it comes to energy lost to overcoming friction. In addition to using less energy to move, Railveyor cars even regenerate energy when traveling on a downslope.
Railveyor’s TrulyAutonomous system software controls operations for optimal energy efficiency and fully-electric drive stations use the most efficient modern electric motors – no diesel fuel or resultant exhaust particulates here. This means reduced need for (and expense to install) ventilation at the mine site and – when paired with electricity drawn from renewable sources – potentially significantly lower carbon emissions for your application
