Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9731845A1] The invention relates to a conveyor with an endless conveyor belt (48), which conveyor comprises: two deflecting rollers defining the active part of the conveyor belt; and drive means for driving the conveyor belt. The conveyor has the special feature that at least one of the deflecting rollers (49) has an adjustable position such that the active part (56) has a correspondingly adjustable length; and the non-active part comprises a loop defined by additional deflecting rollers, at least one (55) of which additional deflecting rollers has a variable position such that the loop (54) has a correspondingly variable length; this such that when the length of the active part is changed the loop is subjected to an opposite change in length.
