Mine operators will have a new option for long-haul overland conveying with the new Flex- steel ST10,000 conveyor belt manufactured by Veyance Technologies, formerly Goodyear Engineered Products.
According to the manufacturer, the belt is capable of conveying 10000 tonnes per hour of ore the height of the Empire State Building, in a single flight or conveying material overland approx. 36.5 kilometres in a single flight. The heart of the Flexsteel ST10,000 is the splice. With a belt of this magnitude, it’s all about making sure the steel-cord splices will hold up in service. Supported by rigorous testing on Veyance’s two-pulley dynamic splice tester the Flexsteel ST10,000 uses an innovative splice design that has been confirmed at over 50 per cent dynamic splice efficiency. The longer flight capability of this belt allows mining operations to span farther distances without transfer points, meaning less product degradation and less conveyor system maintenance. Improving operations by eliminating dusting, noise and chute blocking are additional factors that lead to lower capital costs for mines.
