At the International Mining Exhibition, one of the most important trade fairs for the mining industry in Latin America (16th to 19th of October, Acapulco/Mexico), the Beckum (Germany)-based BEUMER Group presented its innovative solutions for the bulk materials industry to exhibition visitors at Mundo Imperial in Booth 30028 & 30030. BEUMER curved belt conveyors are just one example from the product range. These are capable of transporting large quantities of bulk material from the quarry or mine to the factory or port cost-effectively and quickly. Belt conveyors overcome long distances, steep gradients and tight curves, and can be individually matched to the particular task and topography. Depending on the requirement, BEUMER offers open troughed belt conveyors for higher throughputs and larger mass flows as well as larger curve radii, and enclosed pipe conveyors for products which need to be protected against the effects of the environment.
The innovative belt conveyors are used throughout the world. At the port of Callao in Peru, for example, BEUMER will be installing several pipe conveyors with a total length of around three kilometers for transporting copper, lead and zinc concentrates for completion in 2014. In Malaysia, as main contractor, BEUMER, is equipping a new distribution center off shore with 17 troughed belt conveyors with a total length of twelve kilometers for a large iron ore exporter. The conveyors will ensure swift transport of iron ore from super-size freighters to the mainland.
