Cooperation Agreement Signed with Siemens and ThyssenKrupp

Cooperation provides for the development and marketing of steep-angle conveying systems in opencast mining.

Cooperation Agreement Signed with Siemens and ThyssenKruppContiTech signs a cooperation agreement with Siemens and ThyssenKrupp for the development and marketing of the Chevron Megapipe tubular belt conveying system. F.l.t.r.: Hans-Jürgen Duensing and Dr. Michael Hofmann (ContiTech), Dr. Franz-Maria Wolpers (ThyssenKrupp), Cornelis Rahner and Norbert Becker (Siemens), Detlev Schröder (ThyssenKrupp).
ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group, Siemens AG Process Industries and Drives Division, and ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions are concluding a cooperation agreement for the development and marketing of the Chevron Megapipe tubular belt conveying system, setting a milestone for a reduction in conventional heavy-duty traffic in opencast mining. High-strength ribbed pipe belts with an outer diameter of up to 900 mm are available as fabric or steel cord belts. They have low-elongation, high-strength carcasses and will enable the efficient conveying of ores and overburden over mine slopes with angles of inclination of 30 to approx. 50 degrees. The well-known advantages of the MegaPipe are retained, namely closed-trough transport of large mass flows up to 9,500 m3/h and lump sizes up to 350 mm directly from the primary crusher.
Cooperation Agreement Signed with Siemens and ThyssenKruppRibbed Chevron-Megapipe can negotiate steep angles and tight 3D-curves where space is restricted as well as high mass flow rates in opencast and underground mines.
