Supported Tubulator™ Air Conveyor System

B

RUKS SIWERTELL pioneered the concept of housing air-supported belts inside 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 primary cost advantage of the Tubulator™ is its 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.
