Bruks Siwertell introduces innovative enclosed conveyor design

By BRUKS Siwertell | August 08, 2018

Bruks Siwertell has announced The Belt Conveyor, a system composed of a standard belt supported on a bed of pressurized air over a formed steel trough.  This new design eliminates idlers and all the maintenance issues associated with the traditional conveyor design.  Most importantly, this innovative design eliminates the safety and environmental issues caused by airborne particulates commonly generated by other conveyor designs.  

The Belt Conveyor is a simple cradle system that supports the formed  carrying trough and covers. A central air plenum provides the air pressure to suspend the belt. The basic components include the head unit, tail unit, and the required number of intermediate sections.  The only rotating elements are the head and tail pulleys. The conveyor is also equipped with a fully enclosed cover and integrated air slide return along the return side that provides for a dust-free system.

For quick and easy installation, the Conveyor is manufactured in standard modular sections. Complete erection cost for The Belt Conveyor is typically less than conventional conveyors.
