Teijin Aramid's Twaron fibers are renowned for their excellent material properties. They reduce the weight of the conveyor belt and lower the system rolling resistance.
Within the mining industry, the transportation of minerals and heavy burdens on conveyor belts account for a significant share of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. A Twaron-reinforced belt weighing up to 40 per cent less, results in high energy savings of up to 25 per cent and reduced emissions. Twaron's properties also increase lifetime, reduce downtime and maximise output, says the company.
“This award recognises our frontrunner role in supporting global conveyor belts manufacturers to develop more sustainable and cheaper operational practices. Using our Customer Benefit Model, we can quantify that significant savings can be achieved thanks to increased lifetime and energy savings, all combined with positive environmental effects,” said Gert Frederiks, CEO, Teijin Aramid.
“Teijin Aramid has successfully set an industry standard, backed by its ability to address the unmet user needs for a solution promising lower cost of ownership, longer lifetime and less energy consumption in conveyor belts. Teijin has successfully leveraged the key benefits of its best-in-class aramid product range in conveyor belts. Passionate to excel, the company focuses on identifying new opportunities in different application areas in the mining, steel, and power generation industries. With its strong overall performance, Teijin Aramid has earned Frost & Sullivan's 2016 Enabling Technology Leadership Award,” said Mariano Kimbara, Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. (KD)
