Furnace Feeding
Magaldi Superbelt® P

The Magaldi Superbelt® is a steel belt made of partially overlapping steel pans bolted onto a steel double-wire mesh, thus forming a virtually sealed belt conveyor.

The patented method of connecting the pans to the mesh belt leaves all elements free to thermally expand in any direction without permanent deformation. As a result, the Superbelt® withstands temperatures higher than any other known conveyor. Its design is based on a multi-link concept. Even if the double-wire mesh is severely damaged, the conveyor continues to run without sudden failures and the plant operators can schedule its maintenance according to operation needs.
Moreover, the steel belt is supported by carrying idlers across its entire width in order to withstand heavy mechanical loads. Next to the loading points, the idlers can be closely spaced or mounted onto a shock absorber frame.

The Superbelt® conveys materials very slowly without any vibrating or shaking, thus no dust is released externally while noise is at minimum levels. This contributes to a healthy and more comfortable working environment for plant operators.

The main advantages of the Magaldi Superbelt® for furnace feeding are:

  • pre-heating can be performed directly onto the conveyor;
  • low demand in maintenance and spare parts compared to vibrating conveying systems;
  • inclination up to 35°, thus limiting its overall footprint;
  • adjustable belt speed for smooth furnace feeding;
  • high resistance to heavy mechanical loads;
  • noise and power demand are at minimum levels compared to alternative solutions.
