STUVA Expo, the international trade fair for tunnel construction and infrastructure (November 8 and 9 in Munich), is one of the world’s most important forums for underground construction. At its booth A119, Flexco Europe will be presenting a model comprising various belt cleaners for heavy-duty applications. The belt cleaners are monitored by Elevate, an intelligent Industry 4.0 solution which reduces and avoids unexpected belt downtimes.
Tunnel boring machines can excavate several hundred meters per week depending on the geology of the site. The extracted rock and soil must be removed by belt conveyors at the same rate. Unexpected shutdowns of these systems can have expensive consequences because operation must cease until the problem is solved. One reason for such an interruption can be the need to remove moist, sticky, dry or abrasive residues from a belt, which can cause carryback.
Flexco Europe offers a variety of conveyor belt cleaners to minimize this risk. An example is the H-type precleaner, which is designed to be mounted on the head pulley. Its carbide blades efficiently remove material that stubbornly adheres to a belt. This solution is especially effective in tunnel construction. The blades are individually mounted on cushions. As a result, the modules are sprung independently of one another and adjust themselves individually as they wear. This ensures optimum contact at all times.
Another key element is the MMP precleaner. Its robust design ensures high cleaning performance along with simple installation and minimal maintenance expenditure. Operators have a choice of various cleaner blades made of polyurethane.

Pfisterer develops the world’s first universal pluggable repair solution for submarine cables up to 170 kV for TenneT
TenneT, a transmission network operator, tasked Pfisterer with developing a universal repair joint for submarine cables. The one-size-fits-all solution is designed to fix cable faults quickly and efficiently with minimal inventory costs – whatever the cable type or manufacturer. This is the first time in the world that a solution of this scope will be realised. For the transmission network operator, it creates completely new opportunities for inventory management and submarine cable repairs.
