Belt Conveyor Components And Parts
05th September 2019
We are the leading provider of custom conveying systems. We offer heavy-duty belt conveyors for bulk handling applications.
The right material handling system can add automation and fluidity to any application. We offer a wide range of optional equipment to complement our conveying systems in order to provide you with a complete system designed to handle your specific material. Belt trippers, weighing units, delumpers, reclaiming equipment, loading shelters and load out systems for trucks, rail cars, and barges are all available.
All belt conveyors and conveyor systems are engineered around your unique application to ensure the best handling solution possible.
Size: 18” – 72” wide
Capacity: up to 8,000 TPH
Standard troughed belt conveyors are comprised of conveyor belting that rides on heavy-duty troughed idlers. Idlers range in angles from 20°-45° and are securely mounted to a structural steel frame.
These belt conveyors can be run at various inclined angles, typically between 0°-20° (30° with cleated/chevron belting).
Troughed Side Walls
Troughed belt conveyors provide increased capacity compared to flat belt conveyors. The trough design also contains and arranges material in one continuous stream, while at the same time, eliminating spillage. The troughed belt can also help shield material from unforeseen forces, such as airflow from other equipment operating nearby.
Dust Control At Load Points
Integrated skirtboard and exhaust ports provide additional control for each customer’s specific application. These are usually located at the tail section of the conveyor where the material is loaded onto the belt. This design centers the material on the belt while also containing dust and fines. A dust pick-off point is often located at the top of the discharge hood.
Heavy-duty box truss frames are available in several standard depths. This type of frame construction is used when long spans are required between support points. In addition to span length, proper truss selection also accounts for load factors such as wind and snow.
Conveyors that do not require long spans between supports may benefit from the channel frame design. Because they are often located close to grade, a cantilevered walkway is not required. Above all, channel frame conveyors receive the same precision engineering expected from all material handling equipment.
