Each conveyor is capable of deal-ing with all classes of coal and coke, large and small, when thejib is at an angle of 40 degrees above the horizontal, and at therate of 500 tons when the jib is horizontal. The movable belt is 4 feet wide by H feet deep, and iselectrically driven; the belt-driving motor is of 35-brake horse-power, and the lifting motor of 20-brake horsepower, the wholebeing self-contained on the staithes.
