Continental highlights conveying tech, equipment at ConExpo

By |  March 17, 2023

“With the Conti SurfaceProtect system, industrial and mining belt conveying applications can be monitored on a constant basis, reducing the need for manual reviews of the belt condition,” says Anthony DiGiacobbe, North American communications manager at Continental. “The belt profile information can be used to determine the remaining life of the belt and identify the exact location and severity of wear and damage. The SurfaceProtect system is especially useful in applications where conveyor belts are difficult to access or inspect, allowing for remote examinations of the belt condition. By monitoring over the entire belt lifecycle, operators are able to maximize belt life.”

Direct X conveyor belt

Continental’s new Direct X conveyor belt technology, designed for aggregates and recycling, crushing, grinding, sorting, screening and piling operations, is also on display at ConExpo-Con/Agg.

The company added the Direct X to its line of industrial belting products with the acquisition of WCCO Belting in 2022.

According to Continental, the Direct X cleat profile increases conveyor capacity by capturing more material across the belt width than standard industry patterns. Combined with the benefits of a specialized belt construction that is thinner yet stronger and more flexible in design, the product is a high-value solution that reduces cover wear, increases energy savings and improves belt life, the company says.
