High throughput, low dust levels Flexco offers various skirting systems to avoid loss of material in belt conveyor transfer areas in coal mines, steel mills and wood processing facilities. Fasteners combined with skirting systems effectively isolate the material on the belt without damaging the belt cover, enabling operators to easily reduce dust levels while increasing material throughput. Flexco supplies easy-to-install skirt clamps for a wide range of load levels.
Conditions in underground mining range from arctic cold to extreme heat and are especially hard on man and machine. At the Ugol Rossii & Mining Trade Fair, (6-9 June, Novokuznetsk), Flexco GmbH will be showcasing solutions that not only allow conveyor system operators to improve their processes, but also greatly simplify maintenance and repair work. The solutions on show will include the new belt centring station PT Pro EZ, which detects a skew and realigns the belt correctly – an important step in preventing material losses.
The true way is right down the middle. Flexco‘s belt centring systems ensure quiet running, increased life and reduced material loss for an Indian steel producer
Steel retains its value, it is durable, and its properties always remain the same. These are characteristics which a successful Indian steel producer also applies to its production machinery – for example to the belt conveyors which transport the iron ore to the furnace. The belts were repeatedly running askew. The user had to frequently service and, in the worst case, replace the belts. What is more, there was a considerable loss of material which resulted in enormous costs. The company has now opted for Flexco‘s PT Max Belt Trainer belt centring systems. With their special pivot and tilt movement, if the belt wanders, they immediately guide it back into the correct position.
Operators of conveyor systems in coal mines or underground mines need to keep their belts as clean as possible.The best results are usually achieved with a combination of pre-cleaners and secondary cleaners.With the FMS, Flexco has a secondary cleaner for medium-duty applications in its range.This is designed such that it achieves optimal cleaning performance together with a long life.
Do conveyor systems meet the required standards and can processes even be improved?During an audit, Flexco‘s specially trained staff not only inspect the conveyors and verify conformity, but also identify possible areas of improvement.They trace the four main causes of possible problems along the length of the conveyor system – material carry back, belt misalignment, material loss and belt slip – and recommend technical solutions for rectifying them, even in the case of components from other suppliers.In this way, the user can increase his system productivity.
FLEXCO vereinfacht mit Transportbandverbinde- und Reinigungs-Systemen Wartung und Reparaturen
Erfüllen Förderbandanlagen die geforderten Standards, und lassen sich Prozesse sogar noch verbessern? Auf der Ugol Rossii & Mining (7. bis 10. Juni, Novokuznetsk) zeigt die Flexco GmbH innovative Lösungen, mit denen Betreiber die vier Hauptursachen für mögliche Probleme – Materialrücktrag, Bandschieflauf, Materialverlust und Bandschlupf – beseitigen oder von vornherein vermeiden können.
Flexco has developed an innovative device for the ergonomic maintenance of conveyor belts in coal mines, steelworks and wood-processing mills. The Flexlifter enables service personnel to hoist the tensioned belt on the system to the required height without physical exertion. The belt lifter can be loaded with up to three tonnes and is available in three sizes. And because of its particularly lightweight construction, the technician can move it about with ease.

Do conveyor systems meet the required standards and can processes even be improved? At bauma 2016 (11th to 17th April, Munich), Flexco GmbH will be exhibiting innovative solutions to enable users to overcome or eliminate in advance the four main causes of possible problems – material carry back, belt misalignment, material loss and belt slip. In this way, the user can significantly increase his system productivity. The innovative developments include the FMS secondary cleaner.
