The Pipe Conveyor is an enclosed curved transportation system for all types of bulk materials. At the loading and discharging points, the conveyor system is identical with open troughed conveyors. The difference starts after the loading point, where the belt is formed into its typical tubular shape by special idler arrangements over a certain distance and is then guided through idler stations with hexagonal cut outs and offset idler arrangement. At the discharging point, the belt opens automatically after the final idler station and transfers the material to its next destination.
Due to its tubular shape, the conveyor is able to manage horizontal and vertical curves as well as steep inclines. The enclosed transportation system not only protects the conveyed material against external influences such as climatic conditions, it also avoids material loss and spillage and thus, protects the environment.
The Pipe Conveyor also meets special requirements such as simultaneous material transport in the upper and lower strand and downhill transport with power-regeneration. It serves the cement and power plants, port handling concepts as well as chemical, steel and mining industries.
