Installation Principles of Belt Conveyor Drive Unit

Proper installation and operation of the driving unit exerts profound effects on the running of the belt conveyor.

Driving unit, one of the four main devices of belt conveyor, is the most important control system. The driving force comes from the friction force generated by the operation between roller and conveyor. Featured with simple structure, and multiple functions, the installation of driving unit will have great impact on the operation of the belt conveyor. Followings are two main principles to master the skills of the installation.

First, save for a rainy day. The installation place of the driving unit is directly linked with the tension of the belt conveyor, which means the system flow chart of the driving unit matters so much. Installers should pay attention to the maintenance of the belt, as well as the environmental impacts. The other thing is that the driving units should be installed vertically under the coal mine work to avoid the movements of the roller.

Second, the driving units should be in the place where the belt reach at its maximum strength, this kind of installation can reduce the resistance of the belt. On the other hand, the stable running of the belt will do something good to the motor and roller, because it can reduce energy consumption and extend their lifespan. On the condition that installer fails to find the maximum tension place of the belt, he can rely on the belt conveyor drawings, or consult the belt conveyor manufacturers directly.

In this article, we summarize the installation principles of driving units in the belt conveyor. Before the installation, one should conduct a basic knowledge of the local conditions and adhere to sustainable development. To learn more about the structure and designing principles of the equipments, and to spot the right installation place is the basis for the smooth running of the belt conveyor.
