Magaldi Power will feature an enclosed conveyor belt designed to handle high temperature toxic and/or dusty materials on Stand H1066 at AIMEX.
The Magaldi Ecobelt is a design extension of the Magaldi Superbelt and completely encloses the conveyor in a steel casing for safe and controlled handling, Domenico Antonelli, Magaldi Power's director, said.
“This provides significant health and safety advantages to workers and communities and benefits to the environment,” he said.
“A simple, mechanical self-cleaning device manages the dust by removing fine residuals from the bottom of the casing.
“The Magaldi O-chain, a chain conveyor enclosed in an independent casing that is tailored around the Ecobelt tail section, then receives the residuals and reloads them onto the Superbelt.”
The Superbelt, a steel pan plated conveyor, is one of Magaldi’s key products and is described as capable of conveying abrasive, corrosive and heavy materials or those at temperatures up to and exceeding 1000°C.
“Other advantages over rubber belts, conventional drag chain conveyors and vibrating conveyors include low power usage and an operational life that can exceed 10 years,” Antonelli said.
