Takraf to refurbish giant Belt Conveyor Bridges for Lignite Mining

F60 is the series designation of five overburden conveyor bridges used in lignite mining in Germany, said to be the largest movable technical industrial machines in the world.
Overburden Conveyor Bridges
After around 40 years of operation, two F 60 conveyor bridges in Lusatia, Germany, will be refurbished within the next two years. On the basis of comprehensive structural analyses made by Takraf, the large equalizer, roller table, ball and socket joint of 1250 mm diameter and vertical rail of the 60 m overburden conveyor bridge in Nochten opencast mine will be replaced, and Takraf has been awarded the respective engineering contract.

Residuals Removal at Maritza E1

Since 2006 AES has been replacing one of the three power stations at its Maritza power plant with a new build comprising two blocks with a power output of 300 MW each.
Tube Conveyor Systems
With the reconstruction of the power station Maritza East 1, the residual materials disposal system has also been reorganized. This project was contracted to Takraf in 2006. The heart of the residual material transportation system is a 4.5 km tube conveyor that follows the course of an old railway line and was realized in cooperation with ContiTech.

Europe’s longest Belt Conveyor for French Cement Factory

Headstation of the Vicat conveyor. The steel tower contains the belt tensioning system.
Overland Belt Conveyor
Reducing the number of transfer points in long distance conveying results in lower energy requirements as well as in improved product quality due to lower particle attrition. Due to their patented technology a French supplier was able to install Europe’s longest belt conveyor with both flights running side by side, creating a very low construction height. The 6.2 km overland belt conveyor system went into operation at a cement factory in Montalieu, France.

Down the Rathole

Three air cannons keep the material flowing in a pyramid hopper construction .
Discharge Aids
A cement and concrete manufacturer faced a problem with their storage bins for the raw material, which accumulated in the hopper forming a rathole seriously affecting production. To keep the whole of the material flowing they installed an air cannon system with some interesting specifications.
