Belt Feeders for coal, copper/uranium ore, mineral sands, fertilizers, crushed rock, frozen potato chips and grain.

Belt Conveyors for Mining for a range of mining applications such as mineral sands, crushed rock, talc, copper ore, copper concentrates, limestone, glass sands and opals.

Belt Conveyors for other industries including:
  • Compact low profile conveyors.
  • Elevating whole bunch grapes in wineries.
  • Indexing bottle caps in bottling plants.
  • Turning and indexing metal hinges in a
  • stamping plant.
  • Packaging cashew nuts, etc.

Northern Conveyors also design and supply a stainless steel belt conveyor and roller conveyor model for wineries and food manufacturing plants, plus associated chutes and supports.

We draw on major manufacturers stocks for a wide range of belting, from food grade PVC and polyurethane to heavy duty rubber for mining. Cleated belts can be manufactured for special needs as well as guided belts for controlled tracking situations.

Conveyor and Elevator Drives

Conveyor and Elevator Drives

We are a major importer and stockist of Sanki, the most widely known, modular belt Conveyor system in the world. Sanki conveyors are suitable for fixed plant as well as portable units and heavy-duty options are available.

Belts are selected to best suit each application and can be rubber or PVC with smooth top or patterned options. Standard widths of 350, 450 and 600mm, are stocked for both flat belts (for unitised loads) and troughed belts (for bulk materials). Frames can be hot dip galvanised. Standard lengths start from 2 metres but units up to 60 metres have been supplied.

Various drives are offered, including the standard Kyowa motor pulleys, shaft-mounted gear motors, pneumatic and hydraulic motors.


Conveyor Idlers & Pulleys

Conveyor Idlers and Pulleys

Northern Conveyors stock a comprehensive range of idlers available including plain steel and rubber disc type in a variety of roller diameters and bearing capacities to suit any conveyor application.

Our stock and custom pulleys incorporate the original ringfeder hub design for long life, heavy duty installations but can also be manufactured in lighter duty taperlock style hubs. Pulleys can be flat faced or crowned, plain steel, rubber lagged and grooved for wet installations or ceramic lagged for the ultimate drive coefficient.

Northern Conveyors also supplies other specialised pulleys including Whittington self cleaning spirals which greatly enhance belt tracking and permanent magnet pulleys for separating rogue ferrous materials from conveyor burden.


Belt Cleaners

Belt Cleaners

Our V-ploughs and scrapers are used in mines, quarries and cement manufacturing plants throughout Australia so we know that effective conveyor belt cleaning is a key element in reducing maintenance caused by inefficient material carry-back.

For cleaning the inside surface of return belts and also to protect tail drums, bearings and belts from damage by spillage in loading zones we have developed a full range of v-ploughs, which are available from 450mm to 2000mm belt widths.

Our Taurus TS10 Primary and TS20 Secondary scrapers feature replaceable, long-life, tungsten carbide blades and are suitable for installation on reversible conveyors. The newly released TS30 Scraper has replaceable polyurethane blades.
