Belt Apron Conveyors

The belt apron conveyor makes it possible to transport hot materials safely and economically at angles of incline of up to 60° and at speeds of up to 0.6 m/s with no need for special features. The conveyor system is highly heat resistant. It is based on tried-and-true belt technology as used in the bucket elevators: the steel cells are attached by screws to a wear-resistant longlife steel cable, enabling transport capacities of up to 1,300 m³/h.

Minimised wear and tear thanks to efficient technology

Belt apron conveyors are based on fieldproven BEUMER belts as used in our bucket elevators: The cells are bolted on a low-wear, durable steel wire belt. The fastening bolts are not in contact with the transported material, since they are located in a special profile below the cell. This prevents the heat from penetrating to the belt.

Quiet operation for higher productivity

The high smooth running of the belt apron conveyors considerably minimises the noise emissions, and is perceived by the human ear as less than half as loud as conventional apron conveyors with chain. This reduces the noise level and spares employees, environment and the surrounding area.


Cost Benefits with Steel Wire Belts

Belt Apron Conveyor

The narrow and weight-reduced design of the belt apron conveyors reduces the steel structure and freight costs. Furthermore, the minor net weight lowers the static and dynamic loads which, for example, affect the clinker silo. Within the framework of a new construction project, the silo can be dimensioned to a more restricted load and thus the construction costs can be reduced. The lightweight design also lowers operational costs. The use of the durable BEUMER steel wire belt instead of a chain lowers the maintenance costs, extends maintenance intervals and saves the lubrication.
