Belt conveyors deliver decades of proven, reliable performance
Our idler belt conveyors employ the most well-known, robust technologies for conveying huge volumes of dry bulk material reliably and cost-effectively rocesses and storage. As long as material can form a pile, it can be carried on a conveyor of this type.
In addition to their material carrying flexibility, idler belt conveyors offer low energy consumption and their robust construction delivers a long service life, which often combine to make them the ideal choice for many large-scale dry bulk handling facilities.
The operational performance of Bruks’ idler belt conveyors are proven with thousands of installations worldwide, from single-line conveyors to complex conveying systems.
Simple, effective, clean technology
Bruks Siwertell belt conveyors essentially rely on a heavy-duty rubber-coated nylon core belt, which is pulled from the head end, and formed into a curved trough shape by ‘idlers’. These are cylindrical rollers that support the bottom and sides of the belt as it moves.
Belt-type conveyors can easily be equipped with additional features to tailor them for an operation. These include optional trippers or belt ploughs for distributing and stacking materials. They can also have ridged, otherwise known as cleated, belts for high conveyor inclination and be fitted with covers for dust and moisture control. Optional covers and spillage plates ensure clean, spillage free belt conveying with minimal dust creation.
Modular design offers fast, efficient maintenance
Our idler belt conveyors were developed with a modular design using standardized components. This ensures the rapid availability and delivery of spare parts and makes maintenance easy. It also adds to their cost-effective operating profile, by reducing their through-life service costs. When not used as stand-along installations, they are ideal in combination with ship unloading/loading equipment and in marine terminal applications, matching the up and down-stream conveying requirements of ship loaders and unloaders.
The belt conveying systems are highly suitable when very high capacities are needed, typically handling materials such as coal, ores, minerals, grain, feedstuff and fertilizers.
