The BEUMER Group’s curved conveyor systems are designed as open trough belt conveyors or closed pipe conveyors. They transport large quantities of bulk material from the quarry, mine or sand workings to the factory or port cost effectively and quickly. The belt conveyors are equipped with environmentally friendly electrical drives and low-energy belts. Depending on the topography, the motors can be operated in generating mode. As they are mostly controllable, this enables the load to be optimally distributed on the drive unit for different operating conditions. When the belt conveyor is running downhill, the system works in generating mode. The recovered electrical energy is fed back to the public electricity supply via a feedback unit.
