    anybody which has read my threads on SSI,
    will know that I have been to each part of the site (well 92% of it).
    So it would be rude of me if I didnt put a thread on the vast conveyor network,
    considering I did spent alot of time in them & became ill in the process.
    They are absolutley filthy with coal dirt & particles everywhere,
    exits & mid way points are sealed with corrugated while the steps have been severed.
    Theres no electricity, except some of the main conveyors.

    SSI Conveyor Network by stranton

    The first stage is the production of coke,
    this conveyor carries coal from the coal heaps to the ovens which will be turned to coke.

    Once the procedure is complete, this conveyor carries coke to the ore blending & feed.

    The second stage is the production of sinter,
    this conveyor carries iron ore, scrap steel & lime from the wharf to the furnace which will be turned to sinter

    Once the procedure is complete, this conveyor carries nodules or pelets to the ore blending & feed.

    The ore blending & feed to the blast furnace bunker,
    carries & stores coke & nodules or pelets prior to loading on the blast furnace conveyor

    This conveyor carries coke & nodules or pelets,
    from the blast furnace bunker to the blast furnace which will be turned to steel.

    The conveyors arnt a straight route from the coke ovens & sinter works to the blast furnace,
    there are several sections some above & some below connected with drop towers or bunkers.
    Most of the conveyors are 1 or 2 lines, while a
    percentage are 3 & 4 lines esp the ore blending & feed.

    The conveyors at the wharf which deal with the imported coal,
    carries the coal from the wharf to the coal heaps at the coke ovens & sinter works.

    The miles of conveyors for distributing coal & coke, nodules or pelets about the site,

    the main conveyor is a straight 1 mile long.

    Sinter works conveyors

    All these conveyors lead from the coal drops or to the ore blending & feed
    then to the blast furnace,

    The main walkway from the blast furnace to the offices,
    no conveyors but theres simularities with the corrugated design.

    This is the best report on not just the SSI conveyors but any conveyor system I've seen & if this doesn't get the credit it deserves & ends up in noteworthy reports you should say "Fuck you all" & pack it all in :thumb

    When you see a report like this thats taken time & dedication along with a high personal risk (as shown by your chest condituon) it can hopefully only inspire others to think outside the box and produce what are surely unique results :thumb

    I can see this getting the kind of espouse your other SSI reports somehow failed to achieve . Let's hope it gets the appreciation it deserves ;)

    The conveyor system there is simply immense, never seen anything quite like it to be honest. Certainly worthy of its own report.

    Steady on, it should really only be Noteworthy if you'd have traversed the lot of it, but we'll let you have this one and maybe some of the other stuff as I'll quote
