Conveyor technology and systems – optional accessories and equipment

 

In addition to the variable lengths and widths of our conveyor belts, many further options are available within the modular system. Our plant and conveyor technology can therefore be perfectly adapted to fit your processes.

Scraper systems/belt blades

Scraper systems prevent material from sticking to or staying on the conveyor belt. They defend against contaminants getting into the conveyor system and damaging the belt, as well as preventing the conveyor system from becoming blocked or stalling.

The choice of scraper is not directly determined by the material that is to be transported or the material of the scraper itself, but by the structural environment in which the conveyor belt is installed.

GÜNTHER conveyor belts include a drum scraper as standard. Our team can advise you on the best choice of scraper system for your individual circumstances

If there is enough space under the belt, a lower belt scraper is always a good choice. It is mounted in such a way that it does not come into contact with the material flow and is therefore also an ideal choice if the conveyor belt is installed on an incline. The lower belt scraper is made of tungsten carbide (TC) and suffers from minimal wear and tear.

The head scraper is used when there is limited space. It is attached to the "head" of the conveyor belt and is made of polyurethane (PU). The GÜNTHER head scraper is equipped with a lever system by which the scraper can be swung away and cleaned. In addition, the contact pressure of the scraper on the belt can be adjusted and regulated. The scraper is designed in such a way that it remains serviceable even when worn and there is no reduction in cleaning quality.

A knocking roller can be useful for profiled belts and should be considered if other scraper systems are not fully effective. The expansion and compression of the belt's surface before the change in direction causes the attached material to be released from the belt's surface.

The drum scraper is attached to the drum inside the conveyor belt. It keeps both the inside of the belt and the drum free of contaminants and thereby prevents damage to the belt.

This type of scraper is installed within the belt system . It prevents contaminants that accidentally work their way into the housing from getting in between the belt and the drum, thereby damaging the belt. The plough scraper is self-adjusting due to its own weight.

Belt covers

Belt covers are used where conveyor belts are operated outdoors, where there is a risk of materials being blown off the belt or where other materials could accidentally land on the belt.

Lower belt covers contribute to workplace safety. They protect against unintentional interference with the belt and being caught up in it.


GÜNTHER conveyor belts are designed so that they are compatible with the most popular cover ranges on the market. Our team can advise you on the best choice of cover system based on your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now  

Hoods/covers offer protection against wind, weather and smells. They are often also used when material is being transported from one part of a building to another. Depending on customer requirements, covers are attached to the conveyor belts to protect the belt and material from adverse weather. In windy conditions, material can be blown off the belt and fly away or be spread around the site. When it snows, material can slip, which is a major problem, particularly when the belt is on an incline.

Sheet metal plates not only protect against accidents; they also prevent spillage from falling into the system and on to the ground.

As well as preventing tampering, grills have the advantage that you can still see inside and, if a problem occurs, quickly locate the affected area.

Belt supports

GÜNTHER belt supports are telescopic and compensate easily for uneven floors and slopes.


GÜNTHER designs its equipment so the supports are integrated into the steel structure in the best possible way. To avoid installing too many supports, GÜNTHER conveyor belts can also be designed to be suspended. Fine adjustments to the conveyor belts can be made to ensure perfect feeding and transfer to other equipment.


Our team can advise you on the best choice of belt supports based on your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

The belt supports are made from galvanised steel, which are installed at 6-metre intervals. If this is not structurally possible, there is the option for GÜNTHER to reinforce the belt to allow for longer distances between the belt supports.

Funnels and handover systems

Funnels and handover systems from GÜNTHER are always generously proportioned and prevent the material from falling off the conveyor belt if unforeseen events such as blockages occur or material quantities fluctuate.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of funnels and handover systems for your individual circumstances.

Sealed transfer systems are closed on all sides and are mainly used for dusty materials.

Unsealed transfer systems are constraints that prevent material from falling off the conveyor when being transferred from one belt to the next or to another piece of equipment.

Belt scales

Belt scales are mainly used to determine hourly, daily and annual quantities. They provide information about your own process and are used for process optimisation. This means that processes downstream can be operated in line with experience. They often serve as the basis for material billing with the customer.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of belt scales for your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

Belt scales are installed in conveyors to determine mass flow. A rolling system measures the pressure on the belt and the belt's speed and uses this information to calculate the amount of material.

Emergency stop device

An emergency stop device is a vital safety precaution with which the affected belt or the entire system can be shut down.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of emergency stop devices for your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

The emergency stop device is designed for emergency situations, for example if an employee is pulled into the mechanism, a fire breaks out or material starts to pile up due to a blockage in the system. An emergency stop button or the pull cord on the belt can then be activated. The "two-channel version" is particularly advantageous for larger systems. It displays where the system failure or emergency occurred on a screen.

Belt inclines

A belt incline is usually needed where light, coarse material such as lightweight packaging (household waste), commercial waste or unrefined material flows is processed. When conveyors are directly connected to a shredder or feed metering device, inclining the belt is usually a good idea, as irregular quantities of material are often fed in here.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of belt inclines for your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

The height and material used for the belt incline are dependent on material and throughput. A smooth inner surface promotes a near frictionless flow of material.

Cable ducts or sprinkler pipes

Attaching cable ducts or sprinkler pipes – The hole patterns on the conveyor's sides can be used to attach sprinkler pipes or cable runs.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of cable ducts or sprinkler pipes for your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

The hole patterns on the conveyor's sides mean sprinkler pipes or cable trays (cable racks) can be attached – an efficient, space-saving solution.

Maintenance platforms – Catwalks with single or double railings

So-called maintenance walkways and platforms along the conveyor ensure easy and convenient access to the belt mechanisms at all times, so that maintenance and cleaning work can be carried out efficiently.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of maintenance walkways and platforms for your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

Depending on the height of the belt, railings can be installed on one or both sides. When standing on the catwalk, there is usually no railing on the conveyor belt side if it is at waist height.

Padded feeder areas

On request, padded transfer points can be included so that material does not damage the conveyor and the belt.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of padded feeder areas for your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

Integrated "impact tables" are made from a combination of plastic and rubber that "catch" the material. An impact table is recommended for particularly heavy material.

In the feeder area, buffer rolls can be positioned in a tighter formation than usual. This configuration protects the conveyor and belt from heavy materials.

Fireproof partitions

Fireproof partitions can be installed as a safety precaution so that no burning material can pass from one part of the building to the other.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of fireproof partitions for your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

Production systems are often spread over several factory floors. A conveyor belt then transports the material from one factory floor to the other. In these circumstances, fireproof partitions can be installed as a safety precaution. These are closed by a signal from the fire alarm system so that no burning material can pass from one part of the building to the other.

Radial slewing conveyors

Using a radial slewing conveyor ensures the material from the belt is discharged into more evenly distributed heaps.

Our team can advise you on the best choice of radial slewing conveyors for your individual circumstances.

  Enquire now 

Using a radial slewing conveyor ensures that material discharged from the conveyor belt into heaps is more evenly distributed and does not grow higher than the conveyor belt itself. A sensor detects the height of the material pile and swivels the conveyor belt to the left or right – up to 180°.
