How it works
Pre-troughed conveyor belt employs grooved shoe-forms on each side of the belt that ride on specially designed steel cables. The cables that drive the conveyor are supported, contained and directed throughout the length of the conveyor by line pulleys, which are bolted to the line stand frames. The conveyor variable speed drives can be located at either end. These systems can be driven by head, tail or intermediate drives depending on the varying applications and designs.
Cable Belt conveyors are ideal for:
- Long-distance conveying
- Where trucking material is costly
- Site conditions with:
- Difficult and rugged terrain
- Temperature extremes
- Extreme elevation changes, steep inclines or steep declines (18 degrees max)
- Corridor restrictions (property acquisition, right of way, water crossings, road crossings, power line crossings, animal crossings)
- Bulk ports and terminals
