The BEUMER Group will be presenting its sustainable and energy-saving system solutions at POWER-GEN 2014 (June 3 to 5, Cologne). In particular, the intralogistics specialist will be demonstrating the function of its economical belt conveyors with the help of a model. These systems transport materials over impassable terrain in an environmentally friendly manner. Visitors will also learn about BEUMER Customer Support, which ensures that all of the user’s systems have a high level of availability.
The curved conveyor systems are designed as open trough belt conveyors or closed pipe conveyors. In power stations they move large quantities of coal from storage or receiving points to the boiler and convey waste products such as ash, slag or FGD gypsum to landfills or other disposal sites. BEUMER conveyor systems are also the perfect solution for conveying substitute fuels, which are coming into increasing use. Trucks have considerable disadvantages in this regard. Road building is expensive, and the more raw materials have to be transported from the excavation point to the factory, the more journeys have to be made.
Belt conveyors are equipped with environmentally friendly electrical drives and low-energy belts. As they are usually designed with closed-loop controls, the load can be optimally distributed on the drive unit for different operating conditions. When the belt conveyor is running downhill, the system works in generating mode. The recovered electrical energy is fed back to the public electricity supply via a feedback unit.
Visitors to the trade fair will also learn about BEUMER Customer Support, which ensures that all of the user’s systems have a high level of availability. The support team also optimizes existing machinery. Highly capable experts located all over the world provide professional repair and maintenance, deliver spare parts and carry out customer training.
