Belt conveying systems enable rapid and efficient transport of bulk material from the quarry to the destination also through rough terrain. One example is a curved belt conveyor. Both troughed belt conveyors and pipe conveyors transport various bulk materials over large distances and often across impassable terrain. Using belt apron conveyors, hot materials, such as cement clinker, can be safely and efficiently transported. The conveying system can withstand high temperatures. Heavy Duty bucket elevators transport chunky, highly abrasive bulk material with piece sizes up to 120 mm.
One way to load bulk materials quickly and without dust is with bulk loading heads, which are designed according to the double-wall system. The material inlet and the dedusting unit are separated from each other. To balance out any minor positional deviations of the vehicle, the bulk loading head can be moved laterally during placement. Stationary bulk loading heads are often no longer sufficient for large loading capacities as, for example, in the cement industry. It should be possible to move the bulk loading head to each filler neck of the vehicle. Some mobile loaders adapt to the length of the vehicles. If open vehicles are to be loaded without dust, various telescoping loading systems are available.
The loading and palletizing system autopac 3000 automatically loads bagged bulk materials on to lorries, wagons and ships. The machine simultaneously loads and palletizes bagged goods directly on lorries without using pallets. Little manpower is needed, which is important in emerging market nations where the transshipment of bagged bulk goods is increasing and labor costs are climbing.
The paletpac layer palletizer handles bagged bulk materials. The paletpac 5000 handles high capacity at low processing speeds, due to bag flow distribution. This version is primarily used for palletizing building materials such as cement or mortar. The geometric precision and the stability of the palletized stacks allow for easy storage and ensure reliable integration in downstream packaging systems.
