Global launch of new WE6000i telescopic chute

Hillhead 2016 saw the launch of the new WE6000i telescopic chute as an aid to the quarrying, aggregates and recycling industries (Fig.). Based on Sandvik’s WE series, this has been developed to be fed by conveyors with a belt width of less than 800 mm.

Less dust emissions means lower clean-up costs, and reduced need for maintenance, service and repair work all over the plant. Using a telescopic chute also reduces stock pile segregation and improves product quality. The new WE6000i telescopic chute has been designed to prevent the emissions of dust and loss of material, thereby improving operational efficiency.  A key feature of the chute that enables it to produce such benefits is that a vacuum is created inside it by the material flow, reducing the requirement for expensive, service demanding filtration systems.

The WE6000i telescopic chute is designed to be used in a variety of areas and applications, with the chute itself being of a simple and rugged design. It possesses an extremely good ratio between minimum and maximum length, with the number of conical chute segments varying depending on the height of the stockpile and that of the feed conveyor. The WE6000i telescopic chute can be operated from the control panel, via a PLC with automatic level sensor or manually via remote control. The chute senses its height above the material stockpile and automatically adjusts, minimizing the risk of dust emissions. In addition, the wire winches are equipped with limit switches. The construction of the chute segment is optimized for flexibility, long life and material flow. This user-friendly design enables easy maintenance, providing savings for operations wherever it is used.
