Continental to showcase digital conveyor technologies at SME in Phoenix

Continental is to showcase its innovative digital solutions and a comprehensive range of products specifically tailored for the mining industry at the SME MineXchange Conference and Expo, in Phoenix, Arizona, scheduled for February 25-28.

Attendees will be able to visit the booth to see the company’s latest advancements in rubber technology and learn more about its extensive offerings designed to enhance efficiency and reduce downtime in mining operations.

Specifically, Continental will highlight the following solutions in its booth:

  • Conti+: Conti+ integrates advanced technology to provide real-time monitoring, predictive maintenance and performance optimisation for conveyor systems;
  • Repair kits: Continental offers high-quality repair kits designed for quick and effective maintenance of conveyor systems. Repair kits can minimise downtime, ensuring that mining operations stay on track;
  • Industrial belts: Attendees can visit the Continental booth to see a range of industrial belts engineered for durability and optimal performance in mining applications. From heavy-duty to specialty belts, Continental’s solutions are built to withstand the toughest conditions in the mining industry, it says; and
  • Specialty hoses: Continental will present a comprehensive portfolio of specialty hoses for steam, mine spray and hydraulic applications. Continental hoses are designed to meet the unique challenges of mining environments, ensuring reliability and safety.

“We are focused on helping our mining customers maximise the life of their belts, conveying systems and hoses so they can work more efficiently and keep their operations running without interruption,” Michael Schroeder, Head of Product Management – Conveying Solutions, at Continental’s Industrial Solutions AMERICA, Sector ContiTech, says.

“Continental can support a wide range of industrial solutions needed for mining. Our premium products contribute to significant cost savings and operational efficiency, and we look forward to showcasing them to attendees at MineXchange.”

For example, Continental is currently working with Atlas Energy Solutions on its new 42 mile (68 km) Dune Express conveyor belt – provided by Continental – which will be the second longest in the world.

The electric conveyor will deliver sand throughout the Permian Basin of west Texas and New Mexico rather than putting it on trucks. This will be more efficient and will eliminate millions of truck miles driven across the Permian resulting in avoided traffic, accidents, injuries and fatalities on the roads used by trucks to deliver sand, it says. The two companies worked together on this innovative delivery method to help Atlas Energy Solutions accomplish their goals.
