Belt Shifting

Specialized conveyor belt shifters

Belt Shifting

Open surface mines utilise conveyer belts to transport minerals or overburden from the seam to reprocessing areas. Repositioning of conveyer belts is a time-consuming operation, but the Dressta SB-85 is specifically engineered to perform rapid repositioning and realignment of conveyor belts – a common requirement in open pit mines. When hundreds of meters of conveyor belt need to be repositioned, powerful and reliable heavy equipment is crucial for the efficiency of the mining operation.

The Dressta SB-85 PT and rail re-handling attachment deliver precise control of the clamp to grab and reposition the rail of the conveyor base for rapid repositioning, ensuring production doesn’t fall behind schedule.

Dressta mining application engineers can assist you and recommend the optimal specifications, modifications and attachments – all engineered for your business. For any additional requirements, we encourage customers to make Special Feature Requests (SFR) for truly tailored machines.

Take a look at the key features of our conveyor belt shifting machines – designed for maximum efficiency in mining applications across the world.

SPECIALISED BELT SHIFTING EQUIPMENT

The SB-85 PT conveyor belt equipment has been designed to shift conveyors with a belt width of up to 2500mm. It may also be used to shift sliding railway tracks.

The machine features a boom system on the left hand side fitted with a rail re-handling attachment. The choice of a hydraulic or mechanical head is available, and specialized pumps, valve hoses, cables, hooks and blocks are provided.

PRECISE HYDRAULIC CONTROLS

Dressta’s hydraulic systems are engineered to put the operator in control with joystick operation that allows precise and predicable positioning of the clamp in parallel, radial and combined shifting operations.

Optimal Manoeuvrability

The SB-85 PT is ideal for confined areas and tough operating conditions. An extremely low centre of gravity combined with high ground clearance means the machines are agile and manoeuvrable in the most difficult terrains. This advantage also allows them to move underneath overhead cables and conveyors on site.

If you cannot find the model below with the appropriate engine configuration (Emission Levels: Tier 3, Tier 4 Interim, Tier 4 Final) for your region, please email us or contact your local dealer.
