    Key components for belt conveyors

      With more than a century of experience working with conveyor products in mining, we offer customized solutions for mining conveyor technology

      Voith TurboBelt TT Linear Booster Drive

      Significant cost savings in belt conveyor systems
      The Voith TurboBelt TT Linear Booster Drive is typically used in both underground and open-cast mining belt conveyor systems.

      Significant cost savings in belt conveyor systems

      The Voith TurboBelt TT Linear Booster Drive is a powerful and productive intermediate drive for belt conveyors. It improves conveying efficiency by extending the service life of belts, saving belt costs in new conveyors and increasing capacity in existing systems.
      Equipped with a head and tension station, the TT Drive is integrated into the actual belt. The drive is assembled directly within the current conveyor system. The top belt of the main conveyor system (carrying belt) rests upon the top belt of the introduced TT Drive (drive belt). The tensile force is then transferred linearly by means of the friction lock between the carrying belt and drive belt. This results in significantly lower belt tensile forces. TT Drives provide benefits when used with medium, long or inclining belt conveyors.

      Voith TurboBelt Hese Pulleys

      Significant cost savings in belt conveyor systems
      The Voith TurboBelt Hese Pulleys are used in all types of belt conveyor systems.

      High efficiency and reliable operation

      Voith TurboBelt Hese Pulleys have excellent running characteristics, even under extreme conditions such as heavy loading, heat, cold and humidity. Consequently, they substantially reduce maintenance and repair costs over the lifetime of the system. The layout and calculations are made individually in accordance with customer specifications and take into account the corresponding environmental influences in the area of application. This procedure guarantees the implementation of conveyor belt pulleys that have undergone engineering optimization. They are an indispensable element in belt conveyors for material handling and are built to last.

      Features and benefits

      • Pulleys engineered for optimum operation of the conveyor
      • Excellent running characteristics for high system availability
      • Highest quality materials and components
      • Highest quality manufacturing
      • Extremely long service life
      • Easy maintenance
      • Explosion protection according to ATEX

      Voith TurboBelt Transfer Station

      Fully developed transfer technology
      The Voith TurboBelt Transfer Station is used at transfer points of bulk-material conveyor systems.

      Fully developed transfer technology

      Used in conveyor systems, the Voith TurboBelt Transfer Station provides a sliding, centered material transfer that protects the belt and generates less dust. This reduces maintenance and repair costs when handling bulk materials while also increasing the lifetime of the belt. Thanks to its compact design and modular system, the TurboBelt Transfer Station can be used at almost any operating point including the appropriate feeding station.

      Through our extensive experience, we have developed comprehensive knowledge that we apply in matching material flow and material transfer.

      Features and benefits

      • Little stress on the belt leading to longer belt conveyor life 
      • Sliding transfer protects conveyed bulk material 
      • Customized design for optimized material flow
      • Increased productivity due to optimized material flow
      • Increased safety
      • Little dust generated

      Voith TurboBelt Tension Station

      High operational reliability and long belt lifetime
      The Voith TurboBelt Tension Station is used on belt conveyors.

      High operational reliability and long belt lifetime

      Belt conveyor systems require a tension station of appropriate dimensions based upon the belt quality and the system length. This station provides the required belt tension and dampens dynamic motions. The Voith TurboBelt Tension Station always sets the correct tension for the belt while providing optimization for changing conditions. Thus, our Tension Station ensures both high operational reliability and long belt lifetime for your belt conveyor system in underground and open-cast mining.

      Features and benefits

      • Tensioning systems adapted to conditions
      • Systems for underground and open-cast mining
      • Tension adjustments without structural changes to the whole system

      Voith TurboBelt Storage Loop

      Increasing the productivity of expansion conveyors
      The Voith TurboBelt Storage Loop is used in long adjustable conveyor belt systems underground.

      Increasing the productivity of expansion conveyors

      To keep pace with the rate of advancement in mining, belts often need to be shortened or lengthened with relative ease. The Voith TurboBelt Storage Loop System enables changing the length of belt systems in a safe and productive manner. The conveyor belt is looped around 2-6 return pulleys with 1-3 pulleys mounted on a moving tensioning car. The car is moved using a tensioning mechanism (e.g. a winch) 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.

      Features and benefits

      • Minimization of belt connectors
      • Reduction of downtime by quick and easy lengthening or shortening of the belt
      • Compact design thanks to the optimal matching of the needed change in length

      Couplings for controlled startup
