The function of a belt conveyor is to continuously transport bulk materials of a mixed or homogeneous sort, a variable distance of some meters to tens of kilometers.We produce 2 kind of belt conveyor, fixed & movable belt conveyor.
One of the principal components of the conveyor is the elastomer belt which has a double function :
- to contain the conveyed material
- to transmit the force necessary to move the load.
The belt conveyor is designed to transport material in a continuous movement on the
upper part of the belt.
The belt surfaces, upper on the carrying strand and lower on the return strand touch
a series of rollers which are mounted from the conveyor structure itself in a group known as a trough set. At either end of the conveyor the belt wraps around a pulley, one of which is coupled to a drive unit to transmit the motion.
The most competitive of other transport systems is certainly that of using lorries,
With respect to the latter, the belt conveyor presents the following advantages :
- reduction in numbers of personnel
- reduction in energy consumption
- long periods between maintenance
- independence of the system to its surrounds
- reduced business costs
Fig. a illustrates the basic components of a typical belt conveyor. In practice, according
to the variety of uses, it is possible to have many other diverse combinations of load and unload areas, elevations, and other accessories.
