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

  • Ideal for both mining and industrial applications, including handling of wet or sticky materials
  • Ideal option for steep angle applications

HAC System in Open Pit Mining

  • Reduced truck haulage costs due to fewer trucks and shorter routes
  • Lower operating and maintenance costs

HAC System for Tunneling

  • Uses standard idlers and rolls for quick and easy component replacement
  • May be shortened or lengthened or have the conveying angle altered for a new location
