The principle In the loading area the Trellex FLEXOPIPE® belt is troughed like conventional belts. After loading special idlers form the belt into a pipe shape with overlapped belt edges. The material being conveyed is completely enclosed by the belt. Hexagonally arranged idler rolls keep the belt closed over the track.

The design of the pipe conveyor should consider the characteristics of the installed conveyor belt. The range of Trellex Flexopipe® belts comprises reinforcements with different elastic moduli. A more elastic belt allows narrower curves and shorter transition lengths (distance between pulley and first...
