Our products for the transport of hot materials

Apron conveyors:
The apron conveyor is a cost-effective solution for the horizontal transport with inclinations of up to 28°. Extremely economical and preferred in practice for inclinations of up to 45°.

Belt apron conveyors:
Belt apron conveyors are an advancement of hot material conveyors; they are equipped with a steel wire belt instead of double sprocket chains as traction element. They are extremely efficient in handling high flow rates in connection with long centre distances and large conveying heights.

Hinged apron conveyors:
Thanks to its heavy-duty design, the hinged apron conveyor is suitable for the horizontal transport with slight inclinations. Additional carriers enable inclinations of up to 35°.

Deep bucket apron conveyors:
The deep bucket apron conveyor is exclusively used for combined routings with steep inclines and tight curves (S shape). The deeper mounted buckets with the articulated joints arranged above allow for a low overall height and create a conveyor strand with no gaps.

Tipping tray conveyors:
The tipping tray conveyor with intermediate discharge station is used where you have the option to approach several discharging points, for example to feed silo batteries and storehouses.
