Pipe conveyor belts

Trellex Flexopipe® conveyor belts for any landscape

Pipe conveyor belts, or tube conveyor belts, are used for enclosed material transport. After loading in the conventionally troughed belt, the belt is formed into a pipe shape with overlapped belt edges. The material is then completely enclosed by the belt. A key advantage of closed pipe conveyor belts is their highly flexible design, which means they can be built to follow the contours of any landscape.

Trellex Flexopipe® pipe conveyor belts

Trellex Flexopipe® pipe conveyor belts are spillage-free. They are ideal for transporting materials such as municipal waste, ash, limestone or shredded tyres, which might otherwise present an environmental hazard.

As a rule of thumb, the size of lumps can be a third of the pipe diameter (i.e. from 150 mm to 550 mm).

Material properties

Made of high-tensile steel cords or textile reinforcements depending on the application, and available in various cover grades. Your choice of cover grade depends on the intended application. Note that the working life of the belt is also determined by the application.

Enclosed transport of hot material does not allow heat exchange to the atmosphere, therefore material temperatures must be lower than in conventional installations.

Special features

Trellex Flexopipe® belt enables a more flexible design than traditional types of conveyor belts. Various configurations (convex and concave curves, vertical lifts, etc.) help reduce the number of transfer points leading to smooth treatment of the material and a reduction in installation and operating costs.

This method of conveying contributes to safe, clean and spillage-free material transport, which helps protect the environment and keep maintenance costs low. It also protects your material from external conditions such as snow, rain, wind and dust.
