Pouch Conveyor Belts

Clean, safe and able to negotiate curves of up to 180°

The SICON® conveyor belt remains closed from the feeding point through to the discharge point. It is therefore able to meet particularly stringent requirements with regard to its ability to negotiate curves, its cost-efficiency and its environmental compatibility.

SICON® conveyor belts offer extreme flexibility when it comes to designing the layout of the line, allowing them to be perfectly tailored to any environment. They can cope with corners and edges without the need for additional transfer points. Cornering radii of less than a meter can be achieved, making it possible to establish serpentine routing, which is often required to cope with major altitude differences over very short distances.

Construction

  • Vertical guide pulley
  • Two steel cords vulcanized into the belt with a common axis to enable extremely short radii
  • Support pulleys tilted to close the belt
  • Two profiles led by the guide and support pulleys
  • Pouch-shaped section of belt for carrying the material being conveyed

Properties

  • Copes well with steeply rising topography in narrow areas
  • Eliminates the need for transfer points thanks to its excellent ability to negotiate curves
  • Non-polluting as the belt is closed on the return trip
  • Allows for a two-way conveyor system: belt can be loaded in both directions; varying routing possible for trip out and back
  • Prevents dust emissions
  • Protects sensitive materials
  • Lightweight and flexible, easy to install; self-centering between guide pulleys and support pulleys
  • Little space required
  • Allows for gradients of up to 35°
  • Reduces tensile loads on the belt through the arrangement of several drive stations (with at least 90° encapsulation in curves).
  • Self-cleaning belt
  • Can negotiate 180° curves with a radius smaller than 1 meter
  • Paves the way to a plethora of feed and discharge options
  • Loads uniformly and accelerates quickly

Applications

  • Construction industry
  • Power industry
  • Cellulose industry
  • Steel/metal industry
  • Underground/surface mining
  • Foodstuffs industry
  • Processing industry
