CamBelt Enclosed Conveyors
The CamBelt enclosed conveyor is a unique and versatile concept in belt conveyors -
unique in that it is the only belt conveyor that can transport materials in a completely
enclosed dust-tight system at any angle of incline; versatile in that a simple modular
method of construction permits complete flexibility of design. By assembling various
modular components. CamBelt provides a method of moving materials horizontally, on
an incline, vertically, or through any required combination of planes and angles.
The CamBelt conveyor will move a wide variety of products, including pellets,
granules, and very fine powders, at high capacities. The totally enclosed conveyors transport fine and dusty materials without contaminating your plant environment. It will elevate very fragile products with a minimum of degradation. Because of its design, it requires a minimum amount of space, and where head room is a
factor the CamBelt conveyor solves many problems.
The prime mover in the CamBelt conveyor is a flexible rubber belt constructed in
various sizes with flanges on either side and projections called "nubs" on the surface of
the belt between the flanges, and the same height as the flanges. This endless belt is
propelled through a rectangular metal tube and just larger than the cross section
of the belt by passing over a head pulley, around turn pulleys and (when the
angle of incline is changed) and around a tail pulley. The rubber nubs impart the
motion of the belt into the material being conveyed and move it en masse from the point
of inlet to the point of discharge. By overcoming the flow rate of any given material in
this manner, products as flowable as water can be conveyed and elevated at inclines from
horizontal to 90 degrees.
Because of the unique construction of our rubber belting, with flanges and nubs the same height, pulleys can operate on both the top and bottom so that both increasing and decreasing angle turns can be made. This allows the use of many configurations including L and Z shaped units. Slimline (low profile) construction also is available, which requires a very minimum amount of cube to be used where this is a critical factor.
