June 2014Innovative systems from ContiTech help to detect damages of conveyor belts at an early stage. Whether in mining or in industrial use, conveyor belts are subjected to heavy loads in many applications. Years of stress and sharp-edged objects can leave their mark on conveyor belts.
October 2013The advantages of the SICON® are fully evident on ships used by the fish feed industry. Salmon farms have gained acceptance for the controlled farming of salmon in Norwegian fjords. The fish are fed with feed pellets, which largely consist of pressed fishmeal.
Conti®Protect Belt Rip Detection detects longitudinal slitting early on. Longitudinal slitting in conveyor belts can be costly. Sharp objects are always ending up on the conveyor belt together with the materials conveyed, especially in the mining industry, in wood processing, or in recycling plants.
ContiTech has developed fabric and steel cord conveyor belts which meet the much higher requirements of EN 12882 and EN 14973. Due to our many years of experience in the field of fire safety, we are able to offer our customers conveyor belts certified by an external test institute. .
With POCKETLIFT® the function of power transfer is achieved by two narrow steel cord belts which are connected with rigid triangular cross bars. The material to be conveyed is fed into the fabric reinforced rubber pockets, which are bolted at the center of the cross bars and can be assembled and disassembled individually.
By stepping up the use of conveyor belts in conveying raw materials, a reduction of 340 million tons of CO2 can be achieved in the next 30 years. This is because conveyor belts require considerably less energy in transporting raw and bulk materials than other solutions; some systems don't consume any energy at all and even generate electricity.
Closed tube-shaped belt systems are particularly suitable for negotiating bends, are economic to run and help to protect the environment. The largest tube conveyor in the world has just been supplied by ContiTech and MAN TAKRAF.
Having to clean the belts frequently can result in their premature wear, with unnecessary expenditures incurred for repair and replacment parts. The ContiClean® A-H conveyor belt with anti-stick coating helps minimize these problems.
Vertical and horizontal curves enhance the absolutely precise running performance of the textile conveyor belt. The CONTI® PRO production technology guarantees that this precision is reliably provided by the belt.
