101st National Slag Association Annual Meeting
     Sept. 16-20     Pensacola, Florida


Gary Hanson ( the Belt Doctor ) will be presenting a Technical Paper at the Annual Slag Association Meeting in Pensacola, Florida during their 101st Annual Meeting and Conference. Technical Paper subject:  " Matching your Operations and Process Expectations with Conveyor Belt Specification and Performance.

#1 Common Mistake in Conveyor Belt Procurement -  " all belts look alike, its simply a commodity buy .... the only variable is Price"

It is going to be a great subject to discuss and focus on, as selection and application is just as important as price ... and it directly affects your " TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP"!

Pipe Belt Job Complete .... 18, 264 ft.




Pipe Belt- How to move Coal from the Port to the Plant without spillage or dust // Project Completed:


Working in Conjunction with our Field Service Authorized Splice and Mechanical Partner -the excellent group from American Mechanical Services based out of Chicago- we embarked on a Joint Project to supply and install 18,264 ft. of Steel Cable Pipe Conveyor Belt for a Power Generation facility. 

Logistically, it was a challenge - (13) rolls -43,500# each - had to be shipped by Container to the Port Facility, unloaded and then positioned for the physically tough job of pulling the old Pipe Belt off, the new Pipe Belt on one roll at a time and vulcanizing each connection to end up with about a 3.5 mile continuous Pipe Belt Delivery System.




This is the Port Unloading System 
( unloads Coal and then thru a few transfer systems it ends up on the Pipe Belt
for the "continuous closed" transport to the Generating Plant )



                         Unloading the first of (13) 43,500# rolls from the Container to the Dock



   

  Rolls were shipped on special cassette configured rolls to allow for container height restrictions

  HAMAHEAT - the Leader in Heat Resistant Conveyor Belt


            >  Handles loads up to 750 Degrees  F

            >  Superior Abrasion Resistance

            >  Reliable Vulcanized Splices

            > Manufactured to Width with Molded Edges

            > Lower Cost Per Tonnage Performance


   Yokohama has dedicated years of research to delivery key breakthroughs in heat tolerance, abrasion resistance and splice adhesion when it comes to the development of their High Heat application  Conveyor Belt Technology. 

            HAMAHEAT Conveyor Belts 

              > Resists hardening and cracking
              > Maintain cover tensile strength 5 times greater
                   than the two nearest competitors
              > Improved cover performance under extreme heat
                   conditions extends life and minimizes carry back
              > Premature belt failure due to cracking and blistering
                   is greatly diminished with this high end technology
              > Resists cupping and curling which leads to better
                   tracking, and molded edges reduce delamination
                   and the typical loss in edge integrity
