Tube Conveyor

 

In a Tube Conveyor, 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 transforms into a 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.

Due to its tubular shape, the conveyor is able to travel in horizontal and vertical curves as well as high inclinations. The enclosed transportation system not only protects the conveyed material against external influences such as climatic conditions, it also avoids material loss and spillage and thus, protects the environment.

The Tube Conveyor also meets special requirements such as simultaneous material transport in the upper and lower strand and downhill transport with power-regeneration.
