The LIFTUBE® system enables the belt to run on a central horizontal tilting roller and to slide on the edges, which also tilt.
A removable hood can be adapted to the equipment to reduce belt conveyor dust emission. To facilitate maintenance, the rollers are accessible via innovative tilting supports.
The conveyor belt remains accessible by tilting the glide boards after removing the hoods, skirtings and the various product guiding elements.

APPLICATION (PRODUCT)

Raw coal, explosive product needing handling in ATEX 22 area.

CUSTOMER’S PROBLEM

The energy sources required for the production of electricity may be many (coal, natural gas, oil…). In this power plant, 630 to 850 tons of raw coal are conveyed every hour by fluvial way, stored on site and then transported by conveyor belts to the crusher. At this transfer point, significant losses of material and dust emissions occur and require cleaning operations two times per week.

CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENT

■ Safety: Reduce the risk of explosion due to dust emissions.

■ Economic: Reduce the cleaning costs carried out by a contractor.

■ Environment and health: Reduce exposure to the coal for the operators.

SOLUTION

After several site visits, 6m of LIFTUBE® of 1,200 mm width were installed at the beginning of the conveyor and more  precisely at the hopper level.  Indeed, it was decided to equip only the beginning of the conveyor where emissions and material losses are the most important.Given the explosive nature of the product, LIFTUBE® was supplied in ATEX version to ensure optimum safety. It was also recommended to equip the tail pulley of the conveyor with a V-plough. Until now, there was no protection, but it was necessary to avoid the projection of coals with belt return.

RESULT

The goal of the customer has been met:

■ At the economic level: cost reduction generated by cleaning.

■ At the safety level: strong decrease in the risk of explosion (Atex22 area).

■ At the environment and health level: less exposure to coal for the users.
