The Vecoplan range includes VecoBelt belt conveyors that are suitable for transporting all types of bulk material. The closed design of these conveyors protect the environment from the materials being transported. The conveyors can cope with horizontal and vertical bends and also with slight inclines – even over long distances.
Vecoplan has now further optimized this series: Its users now get a solution in which absolutely no material can be lost. The completely closed VecoBelt conveys bulk materials such as wood chips, wood shavings, and dust-intensive materials like sawdust. Even in the feeder section, the conveyor belt in this series passes through a pipe and does not run on rollers like conventional conveyor belt systems. Since the belt is supported by an air cushion, only minor friction losses occur during operation, which is also quiet.
Vecoplan has continually upgraded this series with belt widths of 500, 800, and 1000 mm. In the optimized version, the returning belt is accommodated in a closed-off housing. It is supported here by an air duct. As a result, no material drops through in the area of the return rollers.
Each drive station is also equipped with two scrapers. Users can adjust the front head scraper and the carbide scraper from the outside. The components can be retensioned in a quick and uncomplicated operation using the ratchet. The front head scraper is flexible, yet strong enough to remove impurities from the belt. The carbide scraper is more thorough, and prevents resin, for example, sticking to the belt. Further scrapers in the weight tensioning stations additionally reduce the maintenance effort, increasing the availability of the systems, while reducing material carry-over. Vecoplan optionally offers a hopper attachment filter, which uses a radial blower to extract dust-containing air during material transfer from one conveyor to the other.
