Steep angle conveying efficiency

Depending on the inclination, the conveyor bridges are mounted perpendicular to the benches of the open pit. An inclination of up to 40 degrees is possible and a service cab driven by a rope winch is provided for maintenance and inspection along the structure. The Chevron-MegaPipe steep angle conveying system can also be designed for large-scale conveyance applications.

The system’s key components include the world’s largest and heaviest profile pipe belt, which was developed by ContiTech with a maximum diameter of 900mm, a width of 3200mm and a strength of 9500N/mm, and the innovative DirectDrive concept from Siemens. These drives are available with installations of six megawatts (6MW) and more.
