Enclosed belt conveyors

Archiv – Enclosed belt conveying systems from Sweden’s Sicon Roulunds transport bulk material from the loading to the discharge point without transfers, spillage or dust generation.Enclosed belt conveying systems from Sweden’s Sicon Roulunds transport bulk material from the loading to the discharge point without transfers, spillage or dust generation. Due to a unique design, the conveyor can negotiate very sharp corners and steep inclines (20-35° depending on transported material). The belt protects the conveyed materials from moisture, wind and also dust, leading to significant environmental, productivity and efficiency gains through reduced maintenance, less spillage and lower power consumption.
The Sicon belt conveyor system can be used for handling bark, waste materials, wood chips, recovered paper, paper pulp and chemicals even in wet conditions. The completely-enclosed
belts are folded to form a closed, pear-shaped bag. Steel cord reinforcements are vulcanised into the profiles of the belt. The profiles serve as tracks for the belt’s angled support rollers and vertical guide rollers, while the cords absorb the tensile stresses of the conveyor drive system. Owing to its pliability, the Sicon belt is easy to install.
The Sicon conveyor comes in two basic sizes to accommodate capacities ranging from 1-400 m³/hour (35-14 100 ft³/h). Loading stations can be located anywhere along the length of the conveyor. The belt is opened by deflection rollers into a U-shape and the opening around the loading chute is covered. The flexible load-carrying part of the belt absorbs the impact of falling material. The load comes immediately to rest on the pear-shaped belt and accelerates quickly.
