Voith TurboBelt Storage Loop

Voith Turbobelt Storage Loop

Increasing the productivity of expansion conveyors in mining using the Voith TurboBelt Storage Loop

To adapt belt conveyors to the mining‘s rate of advancement, belts have to be shortened or lengthened. The Voith TurboBelt Storage Loop System is a solution for belt systems that need to change their length. This solution protects the belts and is very productive. The conveyor belt is looped around 2-6 return pulleys with 1-3 pulleys mounted on a moving tensioning car. This car is moved using a tensioning mechanism (winch, etc.) based on the belt length needed. While doing this, the tensioning force is applied in a controlled manner.

Pressure sensors in the Voith TurboBelt Storage Loop ensure dynamic control and monitoring of the belt tension. Thus, they contribute to an overall increase in operational reliability and safety.
