Troughed Belt Conveyors

Open troughed belt conveyors are used in a number of industries to transport bulk materials quickly across large distances and rough terrain.

Transport of bulk material over long distances

The narrow curve radii and long centre distances permit large mass flows, particularly where heavy and solid materials are involved.

This makes our troughed belt conveyors every bit as economical as they are flexible, and they pay for themselves quickly thanks to the low investment cost. The efficiency of the troughed belt conveyors can be increased still further thanks to energy recovery on downward slopes: this means the motors can be operated in motor-driven or in regeneration mode, and adjustably, to permit optimum load distribution over the drive unit under different operating conditions.

The electrical energy that is recovered is fed back into the grid via a feedback unit, which helps keep the overall system costs down.

  • Energy recovery option
  • Angle of inclination up to 30°
  • Performance: troughed belt conveyor up to 6,000 t/h
