Pipe Conveying the next Stage: A new Technology for Steep Incline High Capacity Open Pit Conveying

By A. Minkin, P. Börsting, N. Becker A new conveyor design is set to help reduce conventional heavy-duty truck traffic and the resulting high operating costs in open pit mines. This article (ed. note: publ. 2016) presents the design and the initial findings of the feasibility study on the Chevron-Megapipe conveyor for a 350 m-deep open pit mine and a mass flow of 5000 t/h.

Overcoming a Mines Embankment: IPCC-system with new Belt Conveying Concept for steep Opencast Minewalls

By A. Minkin, F.-M. Wolpers, T. Hellmuth – In order to allow for a continuous high capacity conveying system out of steep walled open pit mines Thyssenkrupp together with Contitech and Siemens developed the Chevron Megapipe conveyor with an up to 900 mm outer diameter. The pipe belt features highest tensile strength as well as a ribbed carrying side to hinder the transported bulk material from rolling back.

Belt Replacement at a Long Distance Pipe Conveyor: Belt Design, Installation and Power Measurement

By A. Minkin, A. Jungk and T. Hontscha When the Arch Western Coal Skyline Mine decided to replace the old belt of its long distance BC-8 pipe conveyor, a new belt had to be designed to be suitable to the existing routing. In addition, a special installation procedure had to be developed to minimise downtime during the belt installation and commissioning.

BEUMER Group at bauma 2019: Reliable across rough Terrain

Beckum, Germany – At bauma, which will take place in Munich, Germany  from 8 to 14 April, BEUMER Group will provide information on their efficient transport solutions for the mining industry, among other areas. Overland conveyors and Pipe Conveyors transport various raw materials over long distances and often through rough terrain. This is generally faster, more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly than trucking.  Continue reading BEUMER Group at bauma 2019: Reliable across rough Terrain

Cement Manufacturer relies on BEUMER Pipe Conveyors for clean, safe and fast Fuel Feed

Beckum, Germany — Denizli Çimento decided to invest in an individual system from the AFR systems segment (alternative fuels and raw materials) of BEUMER Group, which stores, mixes and conveys differently composed materials, such as shredded waste tyres. The core of this solution is represented by the two Pipe Conveyors used in this project.

Zementhersteller Aalborg Portland A/S setzt auf Pipe Conveyor der BEUMER Group

Eine wirtschaftlich überzeugende Alternative
Die Herstellung von Zement ist besonders energieintensiv. Für einen wirtschaftlichen und nachhaltigen Betrieb setzt Aalborg Portland A/S in ihrem dänischen Hauptwerk deshalb auf alternative Brenn- und Rohstoffe, um damit Kalzinator und Hauptbrenner zu befeuern. Die BEUMER Group unterstützt mit ihrem Geschäftsfeld AFR Systems (Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials) den Hersteller und erarbeitet individuelle Komplettlösungen, um die unterschiedlich zusammengesetzten Materialien effizient zu fördern, zu lagern und zu dosieren. Kern dieser Anlagen sind die innovativen Pipe Conveyor: Die geschlossenen Fördersysteme transportieren die Brenn- und Rohstoffe umweltfreundlich, staubfrei und energiearm.

BEUMER Group: Drone Flight over Pipe Conveyor Construction Site

The Pipe Conveyor is used for the transport of fly ash and is 1.8 km long. It was built for the company Tractebel in Flémalle, situated close to Liège in Belgium.

The installation work was particularly complex. Among other things, the construction team used a helicopter to assemble the system.

BEUMER Group: Pipe Conveyor sorgt für staubfreien Transport von Erzkonzentraten

Transportadora Callao S.A., Betreiber eines Spezialverladeterminals im Hafen von Callao/Peru, setzt auf einen Pipe Conveyor der BEUMER Group, um Zink-, Kupfer- oder Bleikonzentrate verschiedener Bergbaufirmen vom Lager zum Terminal zu befördern. Der rund 3.000 Meter lange Förderer passt sich mit seiner dreidimensionalen Kurvengängigkeit der Streckenführung optimal an. Noch wichtiger: Das System verhindert den Kontakt der Konzentrate mit der Umwelt und fördert sie staubfrei zu den Schiffsladeräumen. Die BEUMER Group übernahm das Engineering, die Lieferung sowie den Stahlbau, überwachte die Montage und nahm den Pipe Conveyor in Betrieb.

BEUMER Group Pipe Conveyor ensures dust-free transportation of ore concentrates

Transportadora Callao S.A., the logistics operator of a special cargo terminal in the port of Callao, Peru, relies on a BEUMER Group Pipe Conveyor for the transportation of zinc, copper and lead concentrates of different mining companies from the warehouse to the terminal. With its ability to navigate curves in three dimensions, the conveyor can be optimally adapted to its routing course of approx. 3000 metres. What is even more important: the conveying system prevents the concentrates from coming in contact with the environment and ensures dust-free transport to the ship’s holds. BEUMER Group was responsible for engineering and supply, including the steel structure, supervision of the installation and putting the Pipe Conveyor into operation.
