Features & Benefits

Standard and Bespoke belt conveying solutions for bulk materials handling applications around the world


The diversity of bulk products, their conditions, and the environments they are handled in, have always been challenges to the conveyor industry. Robson has met those challenges and in doing so has earned a reputation as a global market leader. With conveyor products and solutions of exceptional design, quality, capability, and environmental and safety compliance, our satisfied customers include major blue-chip companies around the world.

Quality build and components

The components we use such as drive motors, gear boxes, rollers, scrapers, sensors etc associated with our belt conveyors, are always sourced from recognised major global brands, and we always maintain a flexibility to accommodate our customer’s requirements for specific brands.

Exceptional Capabilities

Robson can offer ultra-high-capacity trough belt conveyors, with belt widths up to 2000mm, and capacities in excess of 3400 TPH. We can take on project applications for bespoke solutions which few others can handle, but we can also offer standard, modular conveyor solutions as required.

Flexibility in Materials Types

Amongst a huge variety of products from many different industries, Robson belt conveyors have been used to convey products such as: Sugar, Cement, Aggregates, Batch Glass, Environmental Waste, Alternative Fuels, Biomass, Worn Tyres, Cement, Clinker, Chalk, Flint, Slate, Limestone, Sandstone, Granite, Gypsum, Glass Cullet, Sand, Effluent Sludge Cake, Rubble, Food Stuffs, Animal Feeds and Grain

ATEX Rating

Troughed and Flat Belt Conveyors are available, ATEX rated for use in explosive atmospheres and flammable dusts.

ATEX Classification zones exist for explosive hazards like dust and fibres: -

• Zone 20 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur frequently or for extended periods.

• Zone 21 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur sometimes, but not extensively.

• Zone 22 - indicates areas where explosive atmospheres containing a cloud of combustible dust will occur infrequently or for short durations.
