Goods on the move

Whether it is raw material arriving or goods leaving our New Zealand ports, we have the experience, supported by the products, to make sure the goods move seamlessly from port to ship or ship to port storage.

Adding value to the belt

When it comes to conveyor systems, it is not only that belt that is important.  Conveyor components that keep the belt moving need to be considered.  The coast conditions at the port will mean the conveyor system will be exposed to the likes of corrosion from sea salt.

It is important that the rollers, buckets, bolts and troughs are corrosion resistance so the conveyor system does not face unnecessary down time.

Belt Requirements

Whether you are designing a new conveyor system, upgrading an existing one or replacing a conveyor belt we can carry out an assessment of the system to ensure we recommend the best options for your site. 

As we have access to the some of the best brands in the conveyor belt market will can make recommendations on:

  • What belt profile would be best suited for the system
  • Which belt/s would be best suited for the incline or decline of the system
  • Advice on the longevity of the belt
  • Ongoing maintenance and cleaning requirements
  • Reliability and efficiency of the belt focused on reducing any potential downtime
  • What belt and components would be best suited to withstand the surrounding conditions
  • What safety elements maybe required
  • New products and innovation solutions that maybe appropriate
  • What characteristics of the belt are essential in ensuring the safe transportation of the goods on the belt e.g. fire, abrasion, temperature, anti-static and cut resistance
  • Dimensions of the belt

Goods on the move

At Lyttleton port and the Ports of Tauranga we help keep the coal moving.  At the Port of Tauranga we move the coal from the ship to a truck where it is then transported into storage.

At Lyttleton port we take the coal that has arrived by train from the West Coast and move it through the port onto the ship for export.  We work closely with both ports to ensure their belt facilities operate efficiency and are tailored to meet the conditions e.g. when transporting coal it is very important that the belt is fire resistant and antistatic.
