Up, up, and away -- with corrugated-sidewall belt conveying

Conveyors using belts with corrugated sidewalls and cleats provide 90-degree vertical lifts for mining, steel making, coal and grain loading, and other applications. They require less space than conventional belt conveyors and can have a variety of configurations. This article describes and illustrates the principal working parts and basic operation of a corrugated-sidewall belt conveyor.

Corrugated-sidewall belt conveyors have been lifting material straight up as high as 600 feet since the mid-1960s. Today, at more than 50,000 sites worldwide, they lift ore and rock from mines and tunneling operations and coal and grain from ocean-going freighters. The steel and power industries use corrugated-sidewall belt conveyors for storage and feed systems. Foundries use them to recycle sand. The conveyors can move lumps of material up to 15 inches wide at rates up to 7,800 yd3/h.
