History of the PHOENOCORD® Steel Cord Conveyor Belt
|1956||Manufacture of the first Steel-Cord Conveyor Belt.|
|1975||Phoenix supplied the world's first self-extinguishing Conveyor Belt, type PHOENOCORD® St 4000.|
|1986||The world's strongest conveyor belt - with a proven breaking strength of 8,200 N/mm - was installed in the Prosper-Haniel mine by Phoenix. This 1,400 mm wide, PHOENOCORD® St 7500 could hold the weight of 3 Boeing 747s (Jumbo jets) without tearing.|
|1995||Phoenix supplied a 20 km long steel-cord conveyor belt for the El Abra copper mine. The delivery and commissioning of this 1,600 mm wide PHOENOCORD® St 6800 presented a challenge for man and material. A total of 56 splices were made under extreme climatic conditions in order to commission and endless splice the belt.|
|1999||Phoenix was again able to demonstrate its outstanding performance worldwide, for the highest strength conveyor belts. The 24 km long and 1,800 mm wide PHOENOCORD® St 7800 with PHOENOTEC® transverse reinforcement runs in a tunnel system of the Los Pelambres copper mine. Up to 25 MW of energy is generated by the downhill conveyance of the ore.|
|2003||Delivery of the heaviest conveyor belt reels worldwide for the highest elevated copper mine worldwide – Collahuasi. One conveyor belt reel type St 6300 weighs 58 t.|
|2015||After 19 years of continuous service and 900 Mt of conveyed copper ore, the PHOENOCORD® St 6800 at the El Abra copper mine was finally replaced.|
The feeding station is located at 3,200 m above sea level. The height-difference from the feeding station down into the valley is about 1,310 m.
