How to Choose the Appropriate and Economic Conveyors

As is known to all, belt conveyor, based on the principle of friction work, is commonly used in the continuous conveying material. Belt conveyor plays an important role in a production line. With the advantages of simple structure, low cost, common spare parts, easy to maintain and transportation capacity enough to the common need, YUHONG belt conveyor has been very popular among the various production lines. While how to choose the appropriate and economic conveyors?

First, be clear for the belt conveyor usage. We need know the application, the conveyor material and its parameters etc. Understand for the related problems, appropriate belt conveyor could be choose. At present, belt conveyor is widely used in modern mining, metallurgy, chemical and other industries, has the advantages of large transportation amount, simple structure, easy to use, etc.

Second, choose appropriate belt speed of belt conveyor. Generally long horizontal conveyor, high tape speed should be choosing. If the Angle of the conveyor is bigger, the transport distance is short, belt speed is low. For instance, the belt conveyor has big processing capacity and is wide, it is suggested that choose a high tape speed, if the material is easy to rolling, big particle size and higher requirements, low tape speed is good.A wide variety of related conveying machines are available, different as regards principle of operation, means and direction of conveyance, including screw conveyors, vibrating conveyors, pneumatic conveyors, the moving floor system, which uses reciprocating slats to move cargo, and roller conveyor system, which uses a series of powered rollers to convey boxes or pallets.

In order to ensure the belt conveyor reliably operates, it is important to timely detect and exclude the possibility of failure, therefore operators must observe the work of transport aircraft at any time, and any abnormal findings shall be processed in a timely manner. Mechanical workers should be inspected regularly and check for anything or parts that need attention, which is very important. For example, a roller, it may be not very important, but high speed conveyor belt may soon wear its crust and expose a blade, the blade could seriously damage an expensive conveyor belt. Trained workers or experienced staff should detect impending accident and prevent before they happen. Conveyor belt accounts for a considerable proportion of the entire conveyor cost, in order to reduce the cost of replacement and maintenance of conveyor belts; we must pay attention on the knowledge training of operators and maintenance personnel in operation and maintenance of belt conveyor.
