Conveying & Loading Technology by Beumer Group
Efficient and economic conveying & loading systems
Whether for the cement, lime or gypsum industries, for the chemical industry or for new markets such as the energy sector, BEUMER Group belt conveyors, conveyors for hot materials and high-capacity bucket elevators always offer the ideal solution for your specific transportation requirements. Beumer provides the perfect solution for loading and unloading any vehicle, from trucks to railway cars to ships. At the center is the actual loading machine. From there, Beumer designs, manufactures and installs entire loading systems, tailor-made to your requirements and the products to be conveyed.
Every transportation scenario is different: it may involve moving coarse-grained material through rugged terrain from the quarry to the factory grounds, or hot materials from a kiln cooling system to a silo. However, all of these applications have one thing in common: when it comes to economical transport, the BEUMER Group provides the ideal solution.
BELT & PIPE CONVEYORS
Efficient Solution for Long Distances
BEUMER belt conveyors are efficient and ecological solutions for bulk material and piece good transport. In rough terrain, BEUMER belt conveyors save time and energy when compared to traditional transport of goods - for example by truck - that involves significant effort and costs. At the same time you contribute to environmental protection thanks to reduced CO2 emission, as well as lower noise and sound emissions compared with truck and rail transport.
The Pipe Conveyor is an enclosed curve going transportation system for all kinds of bulk materials. At the loading and discharging points, the conveyor system is identical with open troughed conveyors. The difference starts after the loading point, where the belt is formed into its typical tubular shape by special idler arrangements over a certain distance and finally is led through idler panels with hexagonal cut outs and offset idler arrangement. At the discharging point, the belt opens automatically after the final idler panel and transfers the material to its next destination.
The "Hot Stuff" of Conveying Technology
The tried-and-tested mechanical components of apron conveyor technology are the basis for extreme reliability and problem-free operation. The use of highquality construction materials in combination with technologies developed down to the last detail and manufacturing precision ensure a long service life and guarantee significant economic benefits.
Hot materials discharged from the oven cooler at temperatures of up to 600 °C place particularly high demands on conveying equipment. BEUMER apron conveyors offer a choice of cell widths ranging from 500 to 2,000 mm, axis intervals of up to 250 m and transportation volumes of up to 1,255 m3/h to provide optimum system solutions.
- Cell widths up to 2,000 mm possible
- Angles of inclination up to 45° possible
- Conveying speed with a chain traction element: up to 0.3 m/s
- Conveying speed with a belt traction element: up to 0.6 m/s
- High flexibility
- Tailor-made solutions for every application
- Wide product range possible
- High economic efficiency with little capital investment
- Low-wear design for high durability
HIGH-CAPACITY BUCKET ELEVATORS
Heavy-duty, traditional chain, and central chain elevators
High-capacity belt bucket elevators are used for all floury and small-sized bulk materials, e.g. raw meal, cement, grits, sand, concentrated ores, etc. Conveying heights of up to 175 metres have been realised.
Heavy-duty bucket elevators have been developed from belt bucket elevators and are specially designed for coarse, highly abrasive bulk materials. HD bucket elevators can transport piece sizes up to 120 mm. By using a specifically designed BEUMER Group steel wire belt, HD bucket elevators enable maximum conveying heights and conveying capacities. They are particularly suitable as re-circulation units behind high-pressure roller mills, which are increasingly used for pre-grinding in the cement and ore sector.
The traditional chain bucket elevator is designed with a double-strand round steel link chain (marine chain). This type is mainly used as an efficient solution for coarse, highly abrasive materials in the low to medium capacity range. It is also suitable for conveying hot bulk material.
Central chain bucket elevators have been developed from the traditional bucket elevators and enable high conveying capacities with large centre distances.
High-capacity chain bucket elevators with central chain are particularly suitable for the transport of hot, granular and abrasive bulk material. In the cement industry BEUMER central chain bucket elevators are used, among others, for the vertical transport of hot, abrasive clinker, silo feed and in clinker milling systems.
- Large conveying heights > 175 m are feasible
- Conveying capacities of up to 1,800 m3/h are possible
- Maximum wear resistance even with highly abrasive materials
- Transport of high-temperature bulk material
- Special versions for ATEX requirements or for similar applications in potentially explosive areas are possible
