Boot Ends / Tail Ends

Boot end

Tough Australian conditions have been our training ground - knowledge and experience is reflected in the conveyor boot end designs and manufacturing standard we deliver today.


Our engineering team understand the nature of conveyor system dynamics in mining applications - this is crucial in applying the right
boot end design for each individual project.


NEPEAN Conveyors have the technical

experience with all types of boot end systems

commonly used in the mining industry.


A Full Range of Proven Designs:


Trunk Tail Frames

Robust, clean-loading inbye terminal points

for development conveyors that are

shuttle-car and feeder-breaker friendly.


Low load height accommodates more load options and the round bar
design is safe, maintenance free and protects conveyor belt covers.


Simple, strong inbye anchor points for trunk conveyors and drifts. Guarded to AS4024.3610, the compact tail frame design allows rapid relocation

inbye, saving downtime. Loadable boot ends for

trunk conveyors are also available, whether

receiving material from a feeder-breaker or
a high 
production rate trunk conveyor.


Braking Tail Frames
Coupled with high torque hydraulic braking

systems, braking tail frames offer complete

control of downhill and regenerative conveyor



Tail frame braking protects the loop take-up

from the large braking belt tensions. Braking tail

frames are capable of producing up to 1200kW of braking power and can be combined with braking trippers to safely and accurately brake any downhill conveyor system.
