Bruks Siwertell designed and supplied a complete Bulk Handling System for a North American Greenfield wood pellet production plant, including all conveying systems combined with a fully-automated Bruks Stacker Reclaimer storage system.


Conveyors for Consistent, Efficient, Continuous Material Flows Bruks Siwertell offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of conveyors on the market from traditional belt and idler configurations and unique horizontal and vertical screw conveyors, to state-of-the-art, extremely efficient air-supported, low friction belt technology. Industry-leading innovations ensure that our conveyors consistently deliver smooth, safe, continuous material flows for minimal operating and maintenance costs. When extremely clean, dust-free operations are required, our conveyors can be totally or partially enclosed to ensure maximum environmental protection. They can be configured to meet every requirement and can carry virtually any dry bulk material from low to very high capacities. Worldwide, our conveying systems secure the efficiency of dry bulk material handling facilities, including ultra-large power-generation plants that demand some of the largest volumes of material in the World.

Air Supported Conveyor System Bruks Siwertell pioneered the concept of housing air- supported belts inside a standard steel pipe and has installed more units than any other supplier. With over 620 installations, Bruks Siwertell is the established world leader in this technology. Tubulators™ offer unique advantages over regular idler conveyors. Since acquiring the technology from the original developer 25 years ago, Bruks has continuously tested and improved the system. It has proven particularly successful in the conveyance of bulk materials like wood chips, bark, biomass, plastics, etc. The Tubulator™ capacities are 300-500 tph and bulk densities in the range of 20-50 pcf. For higher capacities or longer belt lengths, The Belt Conveyor™ is a viable option.

Tubulators™ support the loaded belt inside a fully enclosed pipe and can be supplied with either a roller-supported return or a fully-enclosed trough for the air-supported return belt. When a fully sealed system is required for environmental reasons or to protect the product from moisture, the air supported belt return is preferable. Roller supported returns offer the advantage of lower cost. The Tubulator™ has a low installation cost, which is significantly less than any other type of belt conveyor. The conveyor is delivered in 40’ modules that simply bolt together end to end. The assembled units can span 80’ - 120’ between supports depending on belt width, and can span up to 250’ with cable suspension towers. A simple yoke system enables the attachment of the spanning sections to bents or cable supports at any point along the length. Head, tail, and take up modules bolt easily to the intermediate sections. The belt centers itself by gravity so belt training is eliminated.

Idler Conveyor Our idler belt conveyors employ the most well-known, robust technologies for conveying huge volumes of dry bulk material reliably and cost-effectively rocesses and storage. As long as material can form a pile, it can be carried on a conveyor of this type.

They can also have ridged, otherwise known as cleated, belts for high conveyor inclination and be fitted with covers for dust and moisture control. Optional covers and spillage plates ensure clean, spillage free belt conveying with minimal dust creation.

In addition to their material carrying flexibility, idler belt conveyors offer low energy consumption and their robust construction delivers a long service life, which often combine to make them the ideal choice for many large-scale dry bulk handling facilities.

Our idler belt conveyors were developed with a modular design using standardized components. This ensures the rapid availability and delivery of spare parts and makes maintenance easy. It also adds to their cost-effective operating profile, by reducing their through-life service costs. When not used as stand-along installations, they are ideal in combination with ship unloading/loading equipment and in marine terminal applications, matching the up and down-stream conveying requirements of ship loaders and unloaders.

The operational performance of Bruks’ idler belt conveyors are proven with thousands of installations worldwide, from singleline conveyors to complex conveying systems. Bruks Siwertell belt conveyors essentially rely on a heavy-duty rubber-coated nylon core belt, which is pulled from the head end, and formed into a curved trough shape by ‘idlers’. These are cylindrical rollers that support the bottom and sides of the belt as it moves. Belt-type conveyors can easily be equipped with additional features to tailor them for an operation. These include optional trippers or belt ploughs for distributing and stacking materials. clean, spillage free belt conveying with minimal dust creation.

The belt conveying systems are highly suitable when very high capacities are needed, typically handling materials such as coal, ores, minerals, grain, feedstuff and fertilizers.

Key Features • Very economical way to move bulk material • Availability of components aids in easy maintenance • Wide range of belt widths, most common are 18-72 • Robust design • Overland and horizontal curved applications are easily achievable Lime Stone Conveyed at 500 TPH

Chain Conveyor Our Bruks Klöckner range of drag-chain conveyors offer a robust, effective method of conveying some of the industry’s hardest-to-handle products, such as stringy materials like unsorted bark. They are an optimum solution for the totallyenclosed transport of materials in applications with limited space. Bruks’ drag-chain conveyors employ a heavy-duty chain and paddle transport arrangement that effectively traps and drags material between the paddles along the length of the conveyor to its end destination. The chains are constructed from high-grade welded steel and have a mechanical or hydraulic tensioning system that ensures they remain taught and effective. When conveying pellets, the paddles are fitted with plastic strips to avoid any material degradation. Owing to the strength and wear-resistance of our chains, these conveyors deliver high reliability, often making them a system of choice for power and pellet plants, saw mills, the panel board and pulp and paper industries.

A key feature of the Bruks chain conveyor is the high angle of operation it can achieve. Loading the conveyor occurs at low angles, horizontal is optimal, with the chain and paddles turning upwards in a transition piece with easily replaceable wear strips. Angles, as high as 45 degrees, are used to shorten the horizontal distances between the loading and discharge points.

Key Features • Totally enclosed, dust-tight and air-tight construction • Has up to a 45 degree incline to storage location and/or disposal location • Reduced capital costs • Long reliable operational service life • High handling rates • Minimum space requirements • Lower power consumption • Less maintenance requirements

Bruks conveyors have low operational costs and are designed to meet customer applications from single-line conveyors with a 600mm width to heavy-duty conveyors with dual-chains up to a 2,000mm width.
