Dunlop Conveyor Belting: Conveying Biomass – the Safety and critical Importance of Conveyor Belt Technology

Drachten, Netherlands – For a great many reasons, the conveyor belts used to convey coal or other bulk materials are highly unlikely to be suitable for carrying biomass. Sadly some very expensive lessons are already being learnt. Here Les Williams of Dunlop Conveyor Belting discusses the essential and very specific characteristics that biomass-carrying belts must have in order to perform safely and efficiently. Continue reading Dunlop Conveyor Belting: Conveying Biomass – the Safety and critical Importance of Conveyor Belt Technology

Siemens: Gearless Conveyor Drives help Mines in South America to transport large Volumes economically

München, Germany In many parts of the world, ore content in deposits is decreasing. The result is that more and more overburden has to be transported to receive a certain quantity of minerals. That puts equipment to the test, particularly the conveyors. However, with advancements in drive technology, such as the Siemens Direct Conveyor Drive System, mining companies can still keep availability high – as well as operate economically. Continue reading Siemens: Gearless Conveyor Drives help Mines in South America to transport large Volumes economically

Martin Engineering: How to achieve cleaner, safer and more productive Conveying with optimized Belt Cleaner Tension

Neponset (IL), United States The ability to maintain the proper force required to keep the edge of a belt cleaner blade against the belt is a key factor in the performance of any cleaning system. Blade-to-belt pressure must be controlled to achieve optimal cleaning with a minimal rate of blade wear. A belt cleaner that is properly installed and adjusted as described in this Martin Engineering article helps to minimize carryback and spillage, reducing risk and overall operating costs. Continue reading Martin Engineering: How to achieve cleaner, safer and more productive Conveying with optimized Belt Cleaner Tension

ContiTech: Continental Conveyor Belts working flat out on Mega-Tunnel Project in Stockholm

Hannover, Germany Conveyor belts designed by technology company Continental are being used to transport  rubble from one of Sweden’s biggest infrastructure projects: “Förbifart Stockholm” (Stockholm Bypass). The bypass, which is situated to the west of the Swedish capital, has been under construction since 2015. Most of the bypass is being built underground, and it is intended as a north-south link to reduce the volumes of traffic passing through the center.

Doppelmayr: RopeCon transports Limestone across Treetops in Guatemala

Wolfurt, Austria The countryside around the village of San Juan Sacatepéquez in south-eastern Guatemala is hilly and forested. Cementos Progreso. had been planning to build a new cement plant there for some time. Among other things, the project required a solution to transport limestone and marl from the crusher to the processing ​plant. Cementos Progreso opted for Doppelmayr RopeCon as a means to cover the distance of approx. 1.6 km and the vertical rise of almost 200 m.
