- Conveyor belt systems help save energy and reduce CO2 emissions
- A new, more flexible ContiClean® A-H with improved lowtemp resistance
- New application areas for SICON® belt conveyor system
- SCR lines keep construction machine engines cleaner
- Hydraulic lines more pressureresistant all the time

ContiTech's participation at bauma 2010 (hall B2, booth 303/400) focuses on technical innovations, ecofriendly, energyefficient solutions and contributions to greater costefficiency. Core topics are energyefficient transport solutions, a lowtemperatureresistant conveyor belt with antistick properties, and SCR modules for exhaust gas purification in construction machines and heavyduty hydraulic lines. "These days technical solutions alone no longer spell market success," says Hans-Jürgen Duensing, head of the ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group. "That's why we keep an eye on providing for sustainable operation in all our developments. Our conveyor belt solutions can help to eliminate large quantities of CO2." Günter Frölich, head of ContiTech Fluid Technology also attaches great importance to an environmental outlook: "Our SCR hose lines for exhaust gas purification systems in construction machines contribute to cleaner air. This is why they are in such high demand."

In Munich the ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group will be presenting a conveyor belt with an energyoptimized cover that can reduce the amount of energy a conveyor belt system consumes by up to 20 percent. Another topic of discussion is that of generating energy during downhill transport. It makes systems more economical and reduces the environmental impact. The Group is, moreover, also presenting a number of new products. bauma is the venue for the debut of the latest addition to the company's range of ContiClean® A-H antistick conveyor belts, which have proven themselves in fluegas desulfurization systems and in the recycling industry. "The new type can also be formed into a trough so that it is able to transport a lot more material than before," says Andreas Ullmann, head of the Industry segment. "A flexible material on the underside of the belt also makes it suitable for use at temperatures as low as minus 25°."

The ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group's SICON® belt conveyor system makes for more costefficient, ecofriendly operations: "Thanks to its pouched shape, the SICON® deals with the transport of bulk goods in a wholly unique fashion," explains Dr. Regina Gensigora, head of the Engineered Products segment. "This flexible means of transport remains closed from feed point to discharge point and is thus ideally suited to the transport of goods that must be contained. What's more the belt exhibits enormous dexterity in negotiating curves." It is thus just right for transporting limestone, sand and gypsum as well as paper, tree bark, woodchips and salt.

ContiTech Fluid Technology brings two new products to the show: 2nd generation SCR technology hose line modules that keep construction machine engines cleaner, and an expanded selection of hose line modules for hydraulic applications. "A technical highlight at the show is our range of complete line sets. They bear witness to our ability to offer customers allembracing solutions," says Robert Wurm, head of the Industrial Lines segment. "They are delivered to the customer with fitting markings and filled with oil. This saves them the bother of having to individually screw the lines together."

Alongside its known SCR lines - tried and tested a million times over - ContiTech now also offers an advanced 2nd generation version of the lines, equipped with heated quick connectors that guarantee that the medium always thaws, right up to the plugin connection. The connectors are available in two types: With PUR coating of the entire plug, which is suitable for high unit volumes and makes for a very compact solution overall, and as an extremely flexible modular system with hinged manifold sleeves and a separate heating component. The second version is suitable, above all, for small to mediumsize unit volumes. In future, ContiTech will also be offering three hose types for the SCR line: the previous standard solution; an advanced, higherquality rubber hose; and a plastic solution.
