The Conveyor Design. In most cases the design is based on known factors such as tonnage to be conveyed, weight per cubic foot of the material, size of pieces and belt speed desirable for the service intended. Suggested belt speeds for various conditions are given in table (A) under Belt Conveyor Data.
Understanding Conveyor Belt Calculations Understanding a basic conveyor belt calculation will ensure your conveyor design is accurate and is not putting too many demands on your system. Conveyor Calculations Legend
MOTOR POSITION of belt conveyors. 1. Side of flow direction The side on which the drive is attached. Here is it possible to choose between the positions "on the right w.r.t. the flow direction" and "on the left w.r.t. the flow direction". 2. Motor position The motor position can be rotated 90° to the transport axis.
Conveyor Belt Design. Good conveyor belt design is important to ensure conveyors are reliable and can be safely maintained and operated. A well designed and properly installed conveyor increases productivity. Ingenium Design can layout your next belt conveyor .
Flat conveyor belts Flat conveyor belts are, of course, widely used for bulk conveying; however, they are also used for unit handling either in the form of one wide belt or multi flat tapes. Flat belts are seen as a clean option, offering no places for dirt to accumulate and so are often used for food conveying.
The core Sidewinder philosophy has been to treat the conveyor as a "system" of design conditions, rather than as a simple design case. This design philosophy ensures that many conditions which may have otherwise gone unchecked are accounted for in the design phase.
Jun 30, 2014 · Belt conveyor design-dunlop. They are defined by their physical characteristics such as density, granulometry, moisture, oil and fat content, pH value, abrasiveness, angle of surcharge etc. Piece loads comprise such as boxes sacks, blocks etc., and are defined by shape, measurement and weight.[PDF]
Belt conveyors each have a wide belt that slides over a flat surface or rollers to move items on the belt from one place to another. The belt keeps the position of the items stable during conveying and is less likely to jostle or bump fragile items than roller or skate wheel conveyors.
The "Z" indicates the general shape of the conveyor- horizontal at one end, an angled incline or decline section, then horizontal again at the other end making integration a simpler step. Design features include: Belt type; Belt width; Slider Bed/Roller Bed; Section lengths; Incline or decline angle; Belt speed; Cleat type & height; Belt sidewall (optional)
The world's most trusted belt conveyor design software tool. The founder of Conveyor Dynamics, Inc. (CDI), Lawrence Nordell, created the first version of the BeltStat belt conveyor design software in 1968. Since then, it has evolved into the most elegant, easy to use and powerful conveyor design programs on the market today.
The design of belt conveyor systems has been one of the most common occurrences in the South African mining field for over one hundred years. Conveyors are seen on virtually all mining installations, and are the biggest problem for the plant maintenance engineer, being the cause of most plant shutdowns.
Belts must be wide enough so that any combination of prevailing lumps and finer material does not load the lumps too close to the edge of the conveyor belt. 1. Determine the surcharge angle of the material. The surcharge angle, on the average, will be 5 degrees to 15 degrees less than the angle of repose.
The hygienic design of belt conveyors encompasses the hygienic principles, strategies and engineering considerations. Belt conveyors allow work-in-progress and finished products to effectively move along the production line.
The following drawings show typical belt conveyor arrangements. Fig.2.1- Conveyor with horizontal belt. Fig.2.5- Conveyor belt with incline and horizontal where two belts are needed. Fig.2.2 - Conveyor with horizontal belt with incline section, where the space permits a vertical curve and where the load requires the use of a single belt.

A wide belt conveyor fitted with fixed belt plows for the purpose of merging cartons from multiple parallel lines. Unique belt type for tracking on a low length-to-width ratio. Angled and skewed tracking idlers properly position the belt on the pulleys.
Belt Conveyor Design Checklist – Use them to: Move simple products from one location to another; Move products up or down inclines (check with our engineers on maximum angles for your product) Move in either continuous or indexing modes (i.e. the belt stops and starts each time to move a product to the end of the belt using a sensor)
BELTSTAT Conveyor Belt Design Software. When used by an engineer familiar with conveyor design methods, the program functions as a powerful design tool, providing uniform, accurate, and rapid computations. The program allows the engineer to easily explore other configurations, such as alternate geometry, drive, and counterweight configurations,...[PDF]
The Bruks belt conveyor, like the Tubulator, uses a modular design. Its 3m sections consisting of carry side pan, return side pan or rollers, covers, air supplies and supporting structures, form the basis of the conveyor. If the conveyor is fixed to the floor or ground, simple support legs are used.
