What is the working tension of the PU conveyor belt?

- Jun 11, 2019-

Insufficient pull of the PU conveyor belt has always been a big problem for everyone, so let's talk to you today about what the working tension of the PU conveyor belt depends on!


         PU conveyor belts are the most widely used conveyor belts in food factories, mainly on belt conveyors. Since we must know what the working tension of the PU conveyor belt depends on, we must first know what the conveyor system is, as shown below:


         Now, everyone understands the entire transport structure based on the picture. The tension of the conveyor belt is calculated based on the resistance and driving force.


         To calculate all the resistance of the conveyor belt, it is necessary to know that the resistance of the conveyor belt mainly depends on factors such as the amount of material, the quality of the conveyor, the quality of the rotating part of the roller, and the length of the conveyor.

As for the driving force, when you buy a drive unit, you have to choose the type of material you want to transport. This is not explained here.


         Then we can calculate the tension of the PU conveyor belt over the entire length, and the maximum tension of the conveyor belt under the stable working of the PU conveyor belt is equal to the tensile force of the PU conveyor belt.


         According to the above knowledge, we already know how the tension of the PU conveyor belt is calculated. After that, when you purchase the PU conveyor belt, you can purchase the PU belt with the appropriate tension according to the above contents!
