When One Conveyor Must Do Two Jobs
When waste and dust have to kept to a minimum, or if moisture and pollutions from the atmosphere must be prevented from reaching the medium being carried, look no further than Valmont® SM. Our pipe conveyor solutions are engineered and manufactured to meet the unique dual-purpose of efficiently moving material while also offering effective protection of it.
Pipe conveyor belts look like ordinary conveyor belts. When loaded, they form a pipe which remains closed until it is unloaded. This means powder materials such as fly ash, cement, quicklime etc., can be carried without difficulty. After unloading, the belt forms a pipe to ensure that materials still on the return side, stay inside the closed belt and that there is no waste. In addition, pipe conveyor belts can curve up to 30° both horizontally and vertically.
