FLEXOWELL® – Faster, Cleaner, Economical

The FLEXOWELL®-conveyor belts are designed for horizontal, steep inclined and vertical handling of all kinds of bulk materials – from coarse-size coal and ore, rock, coarse sand or fertilizers. Lump sizes varying from powdery, floury material up to 400 mm (16") can be handled easily with FLEXOWELL®-conveyor systems. Materials can be carried over 500 m (1,640') in vertical lift with capacities from 1m³/h up to 6,000 t/h.

FLEXOWELL®-conveyor belts are supplied in standard black rubber quality of high abrasion resistance. In addition, other qualities such as heat and oil resistant or flame retardant rubber can be supplied.


  • coal and wood-chip fired power stations
  • underground mining (coal and ore)
  • shaft conveying for tunnelling and underground mining
  • steel industry
  • ship loading and unloading, ship to ship loading
  • sand preparation in foundry plants
  • silo feeding
  • slope conveying in openpit mining
  • waste recycling, soil purification and water treatment
  • handling of large material flows in the horizontal path

Product Range:

In order to grant optimal solutions for each application there are five different types of belts, six rubber qualities, also for sidewall and cleat profiles.

  • Type XE: light duty FLEXOWELL®-applications only.
  • Type XOE: reduces transverse deflection at wheels and stub idlers.
  • Type XDE: medium and heavy duty special applications only.
  • Type XUE: reduces transverse deflection at return strand when carried on discs or inside idlers.
  • Type XST: heavy duty applications only requiring belt tension above 1000 N/mm with ES-Type FLEXOWELL®-sidewalls up to 630 mm (24.8 inch) and cleats up to 600 mm (23.6 inch).

The FLEXOWELL®-technology holds all inclined and vertical continuous transport records in the bulk material handling industry …

  • over 60,000 installations worldwide
