How is the hourly conveyor volume of the belt conveyor calculated?

- Jul 12, 2019-

Belt conveyors are widely used in metallurgy, mining, coal, ports, power stations, building materials, chemicals, light industry, petroleum and other industries. The material is conveyed by a single or multi-unit synthetic transportation system, and can transport various bulk materials and finished articles with a loose density of 500-2500kg/m3.

The calculation of the belt conveyor is mainly the calculation of the conveying capacity, the calculation of the conveying power, and the calculation of the strength of each part. Of course, the first thing is the calculation of the transport capacity.

The calculation of the conveyor volume of a belt conveyor involves a number of factors. It needs to know the nature of the transported material (name): such as particle size, maximum particle size and particle size composition, loose density, packing angle, temperature, humidity, viscosity, abrasiveness, corrosiveness, etc.; Product unit quality and item size. Attention should also be paid to the working environment: (open air, indoor, dry, humid, ambient temperature and dust, etc.); discharge method and discharge device form; number and location of feed points; conveyor layout and size.
