POCKETLIFT®

The Innovation in High-end Vertical Conveying

The most recent innovation in the field of vertical conveying for the bulk materials handling industry is the Pocketlift®.

Based on the Flexowell® technology and the high capacity bucket elevator, the Pocketlift® system was developed for deep shaft underground applications in the mining and tunneling industry with a lifting height up to 800 m in one flight.

First choice for continuous conveying

Pocketlift® technology is giving mining engineers and operators the opportunity for a continuous mass flow over several hundred meters lift height, providing additional benefits, such as:

  • Low energy consumption
  • Small shaft diameter
  • Quick installation
  • Low maintenance cost
  • No underground bunker system
  • Light steel structure for feeding section and headframe
  • Environmentally friendly
  • No mechanical parts in the vertical shaft

Technical details

With Pocketlift® the function of power transfer is achieved by two narrow steel cord belts which are connected with rigid triangular cross bars. The material to be conveyed is fed into the fabric reinforced rubber pockets, which are bolted at the center of the cross bars. These bars also have a guiding function. All three elements are connected detachable and allow separate shipment and easy installation on site.

The standard Pocketlift® Type III reaches capacities up to 1500 m³/h and lift heights up to 800 m while new generation Pocketlift® type II was developed for high capacities even up to 4000 m³/h. Different pocket widths for both systems allow a tailor made design exactly to customers requirements.

As the main application fields are underground mining and tunneling it is mandatory that we hold the quality approval from all major mine inspectorates, such as MSHA or ISO 340 / EN 20340.

For high capacity silo feeding in the food and cement industry oil- and fat resistant and heat resistant rubber compounds are available.
