Overland Belt Conveyors for the mining industry

Rough, mountainous and fragmented terrain with extreme differences in height is nothing our belt conveyors can’t handle. The routing of the belt conveyors is adapted to the geographic and topographic conditions by combining horizontal and vertical curves.

Troughed Belt Conveyor

Troughed belt conveyors for minerals

Open troughed belt conveyors are suitable for conveying any type of material that must be transported quickly across vast distances through rough terrain. With extremely tight curve radii and large centre distances, these systems enable very high throughput and high mass flows of robust and heavy materials.

Different materials can be conveyed in the upper and lower strands at the same time. This makes troughed belt conveyors particularly flexible and efficient. In addition, low investment costs and the short amortisation time ensure high cost-effectiveness.


  • Conveying speed: up to 6.5 m/s
  • Conveying capacity: up to 10,000 t/h, e.g. iron ore
  • Angles of inclination: up to 20° depending on the material to be conveyed
  • Centre distance: depending on the topographical conditions, conveyors of 20 km and longer are possible
  • Curve radius – standard values: > 400 m for horizontal curves, vertical curves depending on the application

Reliable and efficient transport of bulk material

In rough terrain, the transport of goods – for example by truck – involves significant effort and costs. When you use a BEUMER belt conveyor, you not only save much time and energy but reduce your costs for earthwork and transfer stations – while benefiting from low personnel expenses. At the same time you contribute to environmental protection thanks to reduced CO2 emissions, as well as lower noise emissions compared with truck and rail transport.

Quick amortisation of the systems due to high savings potential, as well as low maintenance costs are further winning arguments. The smart feed control provides optimized usage of drives and belts when facing varying height profiles. Sophisticated drive technology and low-wear and low-maintenance components of high quality reduce system charge and increase service life.

Simply ecological with energy regeneration

In case of descending transport, the motors are run in regeneration mode, enabling the generation of electrical energy from the kinetic energy of the transported material. The motors, which are run in motor-driven and regeneration mode, are mostly adjustable. This permits an optimum load distribution over the drive units at different operating conditions. In certain loading conditions, the system is run in regeneration mode. The generated electric energy is fed to the mains by a regenerative feedback unit, enabling a reduction in operating costs of the complete system.
