We manufacture a range of belt conveyor products.
Remove water from conveyors.
Our belt conveyor dewatering systems prevent costly and potentially hazardous issues such as conveyor belts being over-run with water as well as water wrecking conveyor rollers.
Preventing drift conveyor spillage is an important work health and safety (WHS) measure.
In coal mines, conveyor dewatering systems remove water from the coal stream to improve coal quality.
When material has been transported any distance on a belt conveyor it starts to divide, with larger lump content moving to the top and the slimes and water to the bottom.
Our underground mine dewatering equipment eliminates excess water, particularly where it causes problems on steep drift conveyor belts or in underground storage bins. Our systems also remove solids from the water, so it can be handled by the mine’s regular water pump-out system without damage to pumps or pipelines.
What is pulley lagging?
Pulley lagging is a coating, cover or wearing surface applied to the shells of both drive pulleys and non-drive pulleys. The lagging protects the pulley shell (and can also protect conveyor belts) from abrasion. It extends the life of the pulley because the wearing surface (lagging) can be replaced for less cost than the pulley or conveyor belt. Lagging is also used to improve the friction between the belt and the pulley. Drive pulleys are often rubber lagged for this reason. Extend the life of your pulley.
Four types of Brain lagging in a range of sizes to suit your needs.
Correct design and installation of lagging is critical otherwise it can create more damage to pulleys. When using rubberbacked lagging the bond between the rubber and other substance (eg ceramic) is critical. Brain’s bonding strength is above industry standard.
Brain Industries’ Fines Separation Units (FSU) dewater solids laden slurry or fines laden water from several sources simultaneously.
Brain’s FSU doesn’t just separate coal fines. It can dewater almost any hard ore, rock, stone, sand, or other contaminants and hazardous materials with a particle size of less than 80mm that are within water soluble clays or silts. Dewater up to 30,000 litres per hour and recover 40mᶟ of dry fines or other material every 24 hours. The end product has a typical moisture content of 15% – 20% and can be discharged directly on to a conveyor belt, hopper, or secondary dewatering screen.
The fully automatic slurry management system uses an auger to separate coal fines and other materials from water. The auger can be pneumatically, hydraulically, or electrically driven. The FSU is silent, uses little power, can be skid mounted and is easily transportable.

Reduce the cost of maintaining and replacing conveyor chutes. Brain Ceramic Wear Liners help make conveyor chutes and material transfer points last longer.
Also known as Protection Liners, wear liners are ceramic panels moulded to steel backing plates.
You need a clean conveyor belt to protect expensive conveyor systems. The best way to ensure full belt width cleaning is to use Brain Industries’ mounting cushions.
Often material fines cling to the conveyor belt past the unloading point. The residual material carries back on the return side of the conveyor leading to excessive wear on conveyor components, build up on return idlers, misalignment of the belt and adverse effects on the conveyor operation.
A conveyor belt cleaner removes material from the return side of the belt. Brain Industries’ stainless steel mounting cushions make sure your belt cleaner tips move independently and align to maintain the correct tip to belt pressure. This ensures your cleaner tips work properly even on belt surfaces that are worn or imperfect.
The other way to maximise the service life and effectiveness of your conveyor belt cleaners is to use Brain Industries’ Tungsten Carbide Tips.
Our Tungsten Carbide Tips are made using stainless steel to prevent corrosion. They provide high levels of resistance to abrasion and maximum resistance to carbide corrosion in environments with high acid or salt.
Brain Industries’ Tungsten Carbide Tips are designed for H, P and T belt cleaners used on sliced belts with good belt cover. Talk to us about solutions for belts with running mechanical fasteners.
