APPLICATIONS AND ADVANTAGES OF FLEXIBLE SIDE WALL BELT CONVEYORS FOR CONVEYING AND ELEVATING BULK MATERIALS

A well-proven belt conveyor system using flat conveyor belting with special rubber profiles is compared with conventional systems such as troughed belt, drag and flight conveyors, bucket elevators and skip hoists for the elevating of bulk materials. Advantages, particularly in heavy-duty applications, offer substantial savings in space, maintenance, energy and avoidance of product degradation due to impact and transfer-point eliminations.
