TUNRA wins Innovative Technology Award
TUNRA bulk solids (TBS) industry-led research was recently recognised at the annual Australian Bulk Handling Awards, which celebrates specialist new technologies for the bulk handling industry.
TBS were honoured with the Innovative Technology Award for their new rail conveying technology, which provides a highly energy efficient and cost effective method for transporting bulk commodities.
The new rail conveyor technology merges the benefits of both belt conveying and rail technology to produce a low rolling resistance bulk material transportation system. TBS have partnered with Libo Heavy Machinery to build a demonstration rail conveyor in China which spans an incredible 150 meters utilising this new technology.
