Incline Conveyors with Superior EngineeringTransporting bulk materials up high angles presents a difficult challenge for engineers. But it's a challenge faced at factories, mines, quarries, storage facilities, and processing plants every day. Cambelt recognizes the need for efficient and durable equipment that can accomplish vertical movement of bulk material, and has developed incline conveyors capable of tackling this problem with ease.
Industrial UsesIncline conveyors are needed in a wide range of industries for vastly different dry bulk solids. From agriculture and food processing to mining, these implements are an essential part of industry. Here are just a few examples of how Cambelt incline conveyors meet the challenges of moving bulk materials.
- Agricultural Storage - During harvest, grain farmers end up with huge amounts of product to get to market. But there's not always buyers ready to take it directly as it comes from the fields. This means it must be stored in grain elevators, and that requires high incline conveyors. Grains tend to have low angles of repose, meaning they flow readily, and this means resistance to upward movement. Cambelt manufactures several configurations of belting engineered to keep product moving steadily upward. Nubbed CamFlex belts are capable of moving high volumes of grain quickly up angles of 45°. Cross cleated CamWall belts carry grains securely in pockets up angles up to 90°. Challenges for agriculture will become only more pronounced as demand for food, livestock feed, and biofuel feedstock increase.
- Mining - In mines, it is important to be able to keep ores, coal, and other minerals moving to the surface as quickly as possible. Different types of mined materials can vary widely in chunk size, moisture level, and angle of repose. This can be taxing on rubber conveyor belts, especially when limited space requires them to move vertically. Cambelt bucket elevators are up to the task. Our durable one-piece molded belts are rugged enough to handle the abuse and engineered to carry even the largest chunks of ore and are MSHA approved.
- Transloading - When loading products into a railcar from a truck, or vice versa, transitions must be quick and efficient as not to slow progress or lose product along the way. Cambelt's portable railcar transloaders and unloaders accomplish this by easily moving into position under hopper cars or trailers and transporting bulk cargo up inclines into the next transport vehicle. As these implements may be used to transport varied bulk materials on a regular basis, they are enclosed and feature versatile belting capable of moving materials of divergent properties.
- Manufacturing Plants - Conveyor belts are very well suited for manufacturing processes. They allow for efficient sorting and movement through other machines. Often feedstock commodities must be moved between buildings and above other machinery. Cambelt incline conveyors are ideal for this. They can easily raise product to conserve valuable floor space and span long distances. We can also customize our belts using high grade rubber treated for heat or oil resistance, flame retardance, conductivity, and more.
