Tell you about the major elements of conveyor belt maintenance

- May 15, 2019-

In the industrial automation production, the conveyor belt is often used at a high frequency. If the maintenance of the conveyor belt is not paid attention to, the service life of the conveyor belt will be greatly reduced, and in order to improve the service life of the conveyor belt, the conveyor belt must be made. The maintenance, XINBEX gave you a summary of several conveyor belt maintenance needs to be done.


1. During transportation and storage, the conveyor belt should be kept clean and protected from direct sunlight or rain and snow to prevent contact with acids, alkalis, oils, organic solvents and other materials, and one meter away from the heating device.

2. The storage temperature should be kept between 18-40 °C and the relative humidity should be between 50-80%.

3. During storage, the conveyor belt shall be placed in rolls and shall not be folded. During the period of storage, it shall be turned once every season.

4. Conveyor belts of different types and specifications should not be used together, and the joints are preferably glued.

5. The type, structure, specification and number of layers of the conveyor belt should be reasonably selected according to the conditions of use.

6. The running speed of the conveyor belt is generally not more than 2.5 m / s. The block size is large, the abrasive material and the fixed discharge device should be used at low speed.


7. The relationship between the diameter of the transmission roller of the conveyor and the layer of the conveyor belt, the matching of the transmission roller, the reversing drum and the groove angle of the roller should be reasonably selected according to the design regulations of the conveyor.

8. The feeding direction should follow the running direction of the conveyor belt. In order to reduce the impact on the conveyor belt when the material falls, the chute should be adopted to reduce the falling distance of the material; the receiving section of the conveyor belt should shorten the spacing of the idler and use the buffer roller. In order to leak the material, the belt is compliant with a soft and moderate baffle plate to prevent the baffle plate from being too hard and scraping the belt surface of the conveyor belt.

     The above is the main elements of XINBEX for the maintenance of conveyor belts, I hope to help everyone.
