What are the selection factors for industrial conveyor belts?

- May 13, 2019-


Many factors need to be considered in the selection of conveyor belts. XINBEX summarizes these factors as follows.

1. Delivery weight and strength requirements;

The weight of the conveyed material and the conveyor using the idler or pallet determine the choice of belt strength.


2. Special requirements for belt thickness;

The thickness of the strip has a great relationship with the thickness of the tensile strength, etc. In the actual use process, it is necessary to re-design to consider whether the thickness of the strip is practical during transportation.

3, the minimum roller diameter requirements, whether the knife edge belt;

The diameter of the drum should be reasonably adjusted according to the thickness and hardness of the conveyor belt.

4. Whether to tilt the conveyor;

Slope conveyor belts may take into account the need for special-shaped machining such as: baffles, skirts, guides, etc.


5, surface color requirements;

The color will be slightly different in different industries. For example, the food industry should be white or blue. It is not suitable to transport with a black conveyor belt.

6, the surface friction coefficient requirements, whether it is anti-adhesive;

The coefficient of friction is related to the requirements of the belt during some special transportation processes. For example, if the material needs to slide friction on the conveyor belt, the surface friction coefficient of the conveyor belt is small.

7. Surface special pattern requirements;

The transportation of special materials has different requirements on the pattern.


8. Whether it is necessary to prevent stratification in a humid environment;

The ambient temperature and humidity will have a certain impact on the internal structure of the conveyor belt.

9, temperature requirements, hydrolysis requirements;

Material temperature, including the temperature of the environment in which it is used.

10, material shape, wear resistance requirements;

Sharp material damage to the belt, etc.

11. Food grade requirements; Whether it is resistant to cutting, puncture or impact.

Food, cutting and other industries have special requirements for transportation.
