ContiTech is showcasing to the North American market two conveyor belt products that can carry loads up a vertical incline as steep as 90 degrees both in above ground and underground applications.
The belt systems, called Flexowell and Pocketlift, are designed to transport bulk materials from loading point to unloading point up steep inclined, vertical applications.
“These products are evidence of the wide selection of conveyor belt products and services available to the industry from ContiTech,” said Benedikt Nothelle, Head of Sales and Application Engineering. “In brief, wherever raw materials are extracted, processed and distributed, ContiTech has a product to support those applications.”
Flexowell systems can carry materials over 1,640 feet (500 meters) in a vertical lift with capacities up to 6,000 tons per hour. These systems handle above ground and underground bulk materials from coarse-size coal and ore, rock, coarse sand or fertilizers, lump sizes from powdery, floury material up to 16 inches (400 mm). Applications include coal and wood-chip fired power stations, steel industry, ship loading and unloading as well as ship-to-ship loading and a variety of other industrial and agricultural applications.
Pocketlift systems are developed for deep shaft underground applications in the mining and tunneling industry with a lifting height up to 800 meters (over 2,620 feet) in a single fly. Pocketlift technology allows mining engineers and operators the opportunity for a continuous mass flow over several hundred feet lift height, providing additional benefits such as low energy consumption; small shaft diameter; low maintenance costs and no underground bunker system, just to name a few.
