Belt Weighing
Belt weighing is common practice in lots of bulk solid handling operations. Although it’s a long established technology, there are still bits and pieces regarding installation and maintenance which might lead to erroneous results. Following you can find the reasons why.

How to Handle the Fire’s Feed

Effective Utilization of Alternative Fuels
During the most recent decades the utilization of (otherwise) waste materials and biomass as alternative fuels in the cement industry and power plants showed great growth figures. However, the low heat values of alternative fuels require larger handling and storage systems that are more flexible. This article shows, how these materials can be handled.

Considerations about the Cost of Conveyor Belting – Discussing re-evaluated Belt Safety Factors

Safety Factors for Conveyor Belts
New conveyor belts and belt monitoring technologies reduce conveyor belt capital and operating costs by using lower belt strengths than previously thought possible. Key factors are improvements in splice performance, rubbers and real-time belt condition surveillance systems.

New Flyingbelt System combines Cable Way and Belt Conveyor

Sempertrans and Agudio have developed a completely new system for bulk transportation over long distances — the "Flyingbelt", a combination of ropeway and conveyor belt.
Belt Conveyor Technology
Sempertrans, part of Semperit Group, together with Aguido, a brand of the Italian ropeway manufacturer Leitner ropeways, developed a new system for bulk transportation over long distances — the 'Flyingbelt', a combination of ropeway and conveyor belt. The unique conveyor belt suspended on ropes connects a limestone mine in South Eastern Brazil with a cement plant owned by LafargeHolcim.

Pipe Conveying the next Stage

Pipe Conveyor Systems
A new conveyor design is set to help reduce conventional heavy-duty truck traffic and the resulting high operating costs in open pit mines. This article presents the design and the initial findings of the feasibility study on the Chevron-Megapipe conveyor for a 350 m-deep open pit mine and a mass flow of 5000 t/h.

Prevent Wear and Material Loss in Conveyor Systems

The PT Pro Belt Trainer belt centring system detects belt misalignment and, when the belt wanders, always guides it back into the correct position. This is achieved by means of the pivot and tilt movement.
Conveyor Belt Training
An important step in preventing material loss from conveyor systems is to correct the guidance of the conveyor belt. Flexco provides various belt centring systems for this purpose – for example the PT Pro Belt Trainer. This detects when the belt is not running true and corrects it. This is achieved by a special feature – when the belt wanders, the pivot and tilt movement always guides it back into the correct position. With this centring system, users therefore not only have significantly less material loss, they also reduce their maintenance costs.

Rema Tip Top acquired Australian Conveyor Maintenance Company

"We want to become the service provider number one for the Australian mining industry," says Thorsten Wach, CEO of Rema Tip Top.
Belt Conveyor Services
Rema Tip Top AG, a globally operating system provider of services and products in the field of conveying and treatment technology as well as in the automotive sector, has acquired a majority interest in the Australian company ConvaTech. Together, Rema Tip Top and ConvaTech will form one of the largest conveyor service organisations on the resource-rich continent, the company says.
