The Ropecon system is a continuous conveyor for all types of bulk material. The systems can be short as well as extremely long distances of up to 20 km in one section. The track ropes are the supporting elements and the ropes run over towers in a similar way to a ropeway and are anchored at the ends. A conveyor belt with corrugated side walls runs on wheels on the ropes. The distance between two towers can be up to 800 m. This system can be built to cross over impassable terrain, rivers, motorways and buildings with out any difficulty.
The Ropecon system has several distinct advantages over traditional systems:
