Dunlop Conveyor Belting: A Guide to the Types of Belt Edge used in Rubber Conveyor Belts

Drachten, Netherlands – Considering the huge amounts of money spent on conveyors and conveyor belting and the numerous challenges they can present, deciding on exactly what type of edge a conveyor belt should have does not really sound particularly important. But strange as it may seem, selecting the right type of belt edge can have an enormous impact, especially in terms of cost. Here, Dunlop Conveyor Belting’s Les Williams throws some surprising light on the subject and provides some useful hints on how to potentially save quite a lot of money.

The Dual Carry Conveyor (DCC) – What we have learned from 13 Years of Operation of the Namakwa Sands Conveyor

By G. Spriggs, J. Gerber The Dual Carry Conveyor (DCC) at Namakwa Sands was designed, constructed and commissioned by Tekpro Projects in 2002, complete with its unique ‘Pretzel’ top and bottom strand swop over system. As well as simultaneously carrying material in both directions, the DCC has also been extended over the years from its initial length of 3.5 km, via an intermediate length of 4.7 km to its current length of 6.3 km.

Holding the World together: Cement – Systems for a more Energy-efficient and environmentally friendly Production

By D. Rose Cement is the most commonly used building material worldwide. Its manufacture is challenging due to ever stricter environmental regulations and cost pressures because of large overcapacities. Cement manufacturers need support with systems and machines which, adapted to the market, increase the efficiency of their production and, thus, their competitiveness. Continue reading Holding the World together: Cement – Systems for a more Energy-efficient and environmentally friendly Production

Controlling Material Flow in Pits: Complete Plant equipped with Belt Scales

By L. Henke Belt conveyors are the standard for the transport of materials in pits and quarries. To control the material flow and the inventory of these materials, belt scales turn out to be the optimum choice, as they are easy to retrofit in existing plants.

Something Smells wrong: are Lives being put at Risk by Conveyor Belt Manufacturers

By Leslie David – The harmful and, in many cases, potentially lethal substances used in industrial manufacturing processes have been a cause for concern for many years not only amongst consumers but also those who come in contact with them in the course of their day-to-day work. When the European Union’s REACH regulation EC 1907/2006 came into force in June 2007 those concerns should have largely been dispelled.
