The Relationship between the Maximum Width and the Capacity of Belt Conveyor

The technical parameters of belt conveyor mainly include the width, conveying speed, maximum transmission length, main motor power

Different industries like mining, chemical, metallurgical have different requirements on the capacity for belt conveyors. Therefore, customers should choose the right model according to the technical parameter. The capacity for the belt conveyor is closely related to the model and the configuration of the production line. The situation between single operation and multiple devices working together is also different. The factors that affect the capacity mainly refer to the width, conveying speed, maximum transmission length, main motor power, the drive roller diameter, roller diameter, and the horizontal inclination angle.

  Belt conveyor with large inclination angle is very popular on the market, largely contributing to its reliable system and efficient production. User can adjust the horizontal inclination angle to change the transmission speed, according to the nature of the material. What exactly is the relationship between the maximum width and capacity of the conveyor? Actually, they are in a positive correlation to some extent. There are eight types for the width: 500mm, 600mm, 800mm, 1000mm, 1200mm, and 1400mm, and accordingly the conveying speed also has eight kinds: 0.8 m/s, 1.0 m/s, 1.25 m/s, 1.6 m/s, 2.0 m/s 2.5 m/s, 3.1 m/s 5, and 4.0m/s. These statistics come from the comparison of technical parameter.

  The influence of the belt on the belt conveyor mainly reflects on two aspects. The first comes to the transmission speed, which directly affects the stability. The velocity difference between the belt and material is the key factor that affects the capacity. Secondly, the safety factor and mounting angle play an important role for safe production. Normally, large inclination angle and high frequency transmission will be adopted to improve the efficiency. To ensure the security of the production environment, we must choose the belt strictly in accordance with the standard. The intensity should be large enough to form a balance space with the gravity of horizontal inclination angle. Belt is the core component for the tensioning device, also belongs to the wearing part, so it’s very necessary to know its impact on the capacity of the belt conveyor.
