Processing fines within the crushing circuit
Presenter: John Bennington, product manager, washing/classifying, Superior Industries.

This presentation will focus on a new technology designed to fill a hole in the crushing process. Superior's new Alliance Low Water Washer accepts a dry feed within the crushing circuit and produces a more valuable version of manufactured sand. Why more? Because aggregate producers no longer have to re-handle and haul those crusher fines to a separate wash site.
9:45am to 10:30am
Wash screen optimization: Making water work for you
Presenter: Jef McGee, new business manager, Polydeck Screen Corp.

This presentation will tackle a number of wash screen related topics, including: Why water is important, how much water is required, why water pressure is important, water set-up in the head box, spray bars, and things to look for, such as visual indicators and gradations.
10:30am to 11:00am

Modernizing aggregate dispatch: Solutions built for subcontracted haulers.
Presenter: Noah Dolgoy, CEO and founder of TREAD Technologies.

This presentation will establish what dynamic (mobile/web) dispatch of subcontractors is and why people are seeking out a solution like this. He will provide context of what was possible two to five years ago, and what is possible now. It will provide a holistic view of technology use in the aggregate industry. Noah will talk about multiple companies launching mobile-based applications and web platforms to support aggregate supply chains and workflows – focusing on what is motivating this across the aggregate and trucking industries. This session will include a case study on TREAD’s work with Lafarge GTA Aggregates related to subcontractor hauler safety.
11:45am to 12:30pm
Solving real world aggregates production issues with information management software
Presenter: Joe Steiger, National Accounts Manager, Trimble.

Attendees will hear a practical guide on using the latest information management software to help aggregate producers address some of the most common process bottlenecks encountered in the production and distribution of construction aggregates. The session will include step-by-step examples of how to monitor equipment and operator performance, accurately track inventory, downtime and delays, and track KPIs across multiple sites. It will then expand to show how periodic reporting can be used to get stakeholder buy in to process improvement actions and provide timely feedback and control on the effectiveness of those actions. A case study will be provided.
12:30pm to 1:30pm
Networking luncheon
Networking lunch generously sponsored by Aggregate Equipment.
1:30pm to 2:00pm
Enhanced sealing arrangement prolongs operating life in rolling components
Presenter: Roy Wilks, Canadian sales manager of distribution and engineering, Luff Industries.

The significance of idlers is often under estimated when efficiency analysis is performed on belt conveyors. Because price is often the sole selection criteria, the design and failure rate is not taken into consideration which can lead to higher operating costs. Deliberate, customized selection of idlers for specific applications can often solve multiple conveyor problems at once, producing enormous cost savings. This presentation will cover Luff’s experience in providing an optimal sealing solution to ensure a longer idler service life and an overall more efficient conveyor system.
2:00pm to 2:30pm
The benefits of Legal-For-Trade wheel loader scales for government contracts
Presenter:  Justin Marshall, operations manager, All Weigh Systems.

There are several companies that have Measurement Canada approved scales that can be installed on wheel loaders. This option has one big benefit, lower cost to the government and faster startup time for the contractor. A wheel loader needs to be on site anyway to load trucks, but the contractor doesn't need to spend one to two days to setup a truck scale. This presentation will discuss the benefits for legal for trade wheel loader scales for securing government contracts.
2:30pm to 3:00pm
Networking break
3:00pm to 3:30pm
Q&A: Electrified quarry test site results
Presenter: Rock to Road Magazine.

Uwe Müller, chief project manager for the Electric Site at Volvo CE has graciously agreed to answer the questions submitted in advance by Rock to Road’s readers related to the $30-million electrified quarry test site and its recent results, which surpassed expectations. The project – created by Volvo CE and Skanska Sweden in partnership with the Swedish Energy Agency and two Swedish universities – was designed to electrify certain transport stages in quarry operations from excavation to primary crushing and transport to secondary crushing though the use of autonomous and electric vehicle prototypes. Rock to Road editor Andrew Snook, who has reported on the electric test site from its conception to the field test stage, will share Uwe Müller’s answers with Quarry Tech attendees and offer a look at the unique project.
