Pipe Conveyors for
the Mining Industry

For particularly challenging routings with tight horizontal and vertical curves or with applications that require the highest degree of protection the material from environmental influence the pipe conveyor offers certain advantages.

The pipe conveyor is an enclosed curve going transportation system for all kinds 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 finally is led through idler panels with hexagonal cut outs and offset idler arrangement. At the discharging point, the belt opens automatically after the final idler panel and transfers the material to its next destination.

How pipe conveying works

At a glance:

Technical Facts:

  • Pipe diameters between 150 and 650 mm
  • Centre distance up to 10 km
  • Curve radius depending on material and topography:
    min. 300 x diameter for fabric belts
    min. 600 x diameter for steel wire belts
  • Angles of inclination up to 30° depending on the material to be conveyed

Advantages:

  • Protection of the conveyed material against external influences
  • Protection of the environment against escaping material by dustfree transport
  • Possibility of tight curve radii
  • Realization of steep inclination
  • Low space requirements
  • No need for transfer towers
  • Adaptation ability to topographic requirements
  • Possibility of downhill transportation
  • Simultaneous double load transport of different kinds of material in the upper and lower strand
  • Low investment costs
  • Low maintenance costs
  • High operational safety
