Designed to outperform conventional pipe conveyor belts
Most pipe conveyor belt is using technology more than 20 years old. This can lead to numerous conveying issues, including fatigue-induced collapse of the pipe shape, opening of the overlap seal and downward rotation of the overlap seal. The unique patent-pending reinforcement of ContiPipe provides enhanced transverse stiffness, which allows greater resistance to collapse, excellent seal closure and resistance to downward rotation - regardless of the path the belt must travel.
Keeping it clean
Because of its closed belt design, ContiPipe provides dust-free transport of materials, keeping finer materials within the belt and not lost to the air. Meanwhile, the transported materials are protected from damaging external elements like wind and rain.
- Coal (power plants)
- Pulp and paper
- Iron ore
- Fly ash
- Wet ash
- Wood chips
Engineered to work a long way
Developed using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) modeling to meet the demands of modern pipe conveyor systems, ContiPip is engineered to give you more. Comprehensive research, including dynamic belt testing to validate the FEA, allowed us to create a belt that can withstand the stresses of a long haul, especially around tight curves. Plus, it is built with unique characteristics that allow ContiPipe to keep its shape.
- Superb long-term transverse stiffness
- Excellent overlap seal
- Reduced buckling and minimized seam rotation in curves
The FEA modeling provides the basis to design a belt to meet the demanding requirements of pipe conveyor systems. This results in longer life compared to conventional pipe belts and a lower cost-per-ton conveyed.
Technical plant design
Pipe belt properties
|Tight curves and inclines of up to 30° possible, ensuring optimal adaptation to local features/terrain/systems
||High strength and ability to negotiate curves: long center distances without intermediate transfers
||Protection of the material conveyed against environmental conditions (e.g. rain, snow, sun and wind)
|Little space required thanks to its compact design, which makes it the ideal choice for underground mining, cement factories, steel mills and power plants
||The low-stretch strength member enables short take-ups
||Protection of the material conveyed against volatilzation and adulteration due to extraction or addition of parts of the material
|No transfer stations as a result of tight horizontal and vertical curves and relatively high incline angles
||Stable tracking. The special tension member configuration ensures an effective seal in the overlap area
||Protection of the environment and people since hazardous, contaminated, dusty or strong-smelling materials (chemicals, refuse, ash, overburden etc.) cannot escape
|High conveying speed
||High volumetric flow rates
||Significantly reduced CO2 emissions compared with conventional transport by truck
||Belt design offers a long service life and extreme reliability
