Belt Conveyors

Belt Conveyors

Belt conveyors are the most economical method of transporting bulk materials over both short and long distances. Belt conveyors are ideal for conveying bulk materials of large lump size since the bulk materials stay stationary on the belt. The layout of your plant can be simplified and made more efficient with the use of belt conveyors.

Advantages of Using Belt Conveyors

  • Ideal for conveying a wide variety of bulk materials
    - from sluggish to free flowing and small to large lump size
  • Able to handle large conveying capacities
    - up to 50,000 cubic feet per hour
  • Can be used to convey bulk materials horizontally or on an incline
  • Horsepower requirements are much lower when compared to other types of conveyors

KWS designs and manufactures Belt Conveyors to meet the needs of many industries, such as Chemical, Minerals Processing, Food, Wood Products and Wastewater Treatment.

KWS Belt Conveyors are custom designed for your application based on proven industry standards. Bulk material characteristics, feed-rate, loading requirements and temperatures are some of the parameters that we consider when designing belt conveyors.
