Finding a Reliable Way of Valuing a Stockpile

"Equipment suppliers are often frustrated by clients who place price above all else. One such supplier, Ian Burrell of Control Systems Technology, submitted this commentary to stress the importance of looking at price in the context of overall performance. His comment is echoed increasingly these days by suppliers of all equipment - not merely belt weighers. Hopefully this comments will get through to those equipment purchases who put short term gain above long term performance"

Canadian Success Paves Way For CST Abroad


Westshore Terminals Ltd at Joseph's Bank, Vancouver installed a Control Systems Technology P/L (CST) precision shiploading belt weigher in October 1998 which has laid a good foundation for further sales to shiploading facilities around the world. At Westshore the main conveyor moves up to 7,700 mtph of coal at 4.5m/s on a 2133mm belt toughed at 45 degrees. CST provided a large weigh frame based on large universal beam side members, six idlers in length with calculated accuracy of better than 0.25% over a range from 20% to 120% of flow.

CST in the Local Lime Light at QME 2010

Control Systems recently attended the Queensland Mining & Engineering Expo 2010 in Mackay. The stand saw regular traffic with both familar faces and new ones dropping in to talk about the equipment and future job prospects. The Daily mercury did a half page spread on the stand, no doubt due to the impressive display conveyor which is a minature working conveyor with a full four loadcell beltweigher running with in it. 

Our New Factory



CST has moved to new, larger premesis.

Control Systems Technology has manufactured out of premises in Lorraine Street, Peakhurst for the last 15 years.

However thanks to the recent and continued high level of activity in the industry we have had to expand our manufacturing facilities to keep up with demand.

We have moved literally 500 metres around the corner to our new factory at 37 Stanley Street, Peakhurst.
