The pipe conveyor is a system conceived to solve many of the problems existing with conventional conveyor systems. At the loading point of the material, the Pipe Conveyor is open as a conventional belt conveyor, then it closes up into a pipe shape containing the conveyed material and returns to open at the discharge point. As the material is wrapped around by the belt, there is no spillage or training problems and this keeps pollution under control. Pipe conveyors are available in horizontal curves as well as vertical curves.

Main points of the system:
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PIPE CONVEYOR
It is capable of conveyance closing up into a pipe shape.
Therefore the enclosed materials cannot scatter, drop, pollute the environment, as well as it prevents from dropping on the pipe shaped return side
It is capable of curved transportation.
Therefore the lay-out can be rationalized into smaller areas.
It is capable of inclined transportation.
Therefore since the pipe shape increases friction between material and inside of the belt, the conveyor length becomes shorter.
