The PipeCon is an air-guided conveying system for any type of bulk material with precisely defined particle sizes, such as in the wood and cement industries.
It is a conveyor system designed for transporting bulk materials of all kinds over long distances. Extremely high conveying capacities (up to 500 t/h) are possible in the perfectly sealed pipe conveyor. The supports can be up to 60 m apart, with a total length of more than 300 m.
The belt floats on an air buffer generated by integrated fans. The 2.2 kW fans are located every 50 m at the top of the pipe conveyor. This drastically improves efficiency and minimises wear parts and maintenance of the machine. A maintenance walkway can be mounted directly on the belt, eliminating the need for an additional steel structure. The one-sided access is completely sufficient for full maintenance.
The tensioning station can be flexibly positioned on the floor so that the conveyor can be easily integrated into any plant design. In addition, a double scraper system is installed, which prevents uncontrolled falling of dust or trickling material. The PipeCon consists of 12 m long segments that can be quickly assembled. Due to our transport system, three of these segments can be safely transported and quickly unloaded in a 40′ container.
