Environmental Belt Conveyors

Belt conveyors are one of the most widely used bulk material handling conveyors in the world. Their economic design makes them ideal for conveying short and long distances. In today’s modern water and wastewater treatment plant a belt conveyor can be used in a variety of applications including conveying grit, screenings and dewatered or dried biosolids. Both troughing idler and flex wall belt conveyors are used in these applications. Utilizing standard CEMA components a belt conveyor can be custom configured to meet the demanding needs of today’s complex treatment plants.

Advantages of Using Environmental Belt Conveyors

  • Available in a wide variety of materials of construction and configurations
  • Utilizes readily available standard CEMA components
  • More energy efficient when compared to pumps and other conveyors
  • Ideal for bulky and sluggish bulk materials
  • Able to span long distances in a single run
  • Can convey horizontally, on an incline or vertical

Belt conveyors are very versatile and can fit many different plant layouts. KWS Environmental offers two types of belt conveyors – Troughing Belt Conveyors and Flex Wall Belt Conveyors.

Troughing Belt Conveyors utilize off set idlers to create a bowl shape with the belt to convey bulk materials with minimal spillage.

Flex Wall Belt Conveyors utilize a flat belt with corrugated side walls with optional cleats to convey bulk materials. Corrugated side walls minimize spillage and cleats allow for more efficient conveying on inclines.
