MULTI-FACETED PRODUCT PORTFOLIO FOR FLEXIBLE
From mines to mineral processing plants, the ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group has a wealth of expertise in specialist solutions and is consequently able to offer a wide range of products along the entire value chain. Its steel-cable and fabric- reinforced belts allow maximum conveying capacities, even under extreme climatic and topographic conditions. Used above and below ground, processing plants, and in various other industries, their robust construction guarantees high breaking load and good impact resistance. They also undergo only minimal elongation, even over longer distances — all thanks to ContiTech’s outstanding material expertise.
One highlight of the product portfolio is the special bulk conveyor range. ContiTech’s Flexowell for example, is safe and cost-effective and guarantees efficient steep-angle transportation at up to 90°. A single belt can navigate horizontal as well as vertical routes without difficulty, and customers benefit from short installation times and low-noise, eco-friendly, energy-saving operations. Flexowell also forms the basis of Pocketlift, the vertical conveying solution. Pocketlift is capable of transporting up to 6,000 tonnes of material per hour over a maximum lift height of 700m per single conveyor. It can be modularly stacked to any height.
The fabric-reinforced rubber pockets can be installed and removed individually, making Pocketlift much more compact than conventional systems, such as skip-hoists. This makes it ideal for handling materials in mining shafts. Pocketlift has been installed and tested successfully, for example at the American White County Coal (WCC) Mine in Carmi, Illinois.
For enhanced safety, ContiTech has developed a series of innovative electronic conveyor belt warning and inspection systems that detect damage early and monitor the condition of conveyor belts. As well as meeting the highest standards, these systems can handle extreme conditions while at the same time guaranteeing a high degree of system security. Conti Protect warning systems, for example, make an important contribution to greater operational safety by preventing major damage to conveyor belt systems and so reducing damage-related idle times. Meanwhile, Conti Inspect systems supply the data required to make reliable service-life prognoses and estimate the ideal point in time for replacement investments more accurately. As well as keeping operating costs down, these systems help to protect the environment.
