Conveyor Belt Adjustment

- Jan 28, 2019-

The main fan of Catalyst Workshop No. 1 is going to be put into operation, and even if it starts twice, it will be turned off. Although it is started for the third time, the no-load current is measured as 190A, which is 20A larger than 170A in normal. Check the running log, the machine runs well before the outage, no abnormalities are found. The motor has a power of 132 kW, a rated current of 269 A, and a compressor power of 130 kW and a speed of 739 r/min. To ensure safety, check it.

After the machine repair and electric repair inspection, I said that I have no problem. It was found that the five triangular drive belts were very tight, and the analysis of the failure phenomenon caused the conveyor belt to be too tight. The company is located in the north, the original belt may be elastic, and the shrinkage of the conveyor belt becomes obvious due to the sudden drop in ambient temperature. After two times of opening, due to the frictional effect, the instantaneous frictional heating of the conveyor belt slightly increased slightly, and the third time the barely strong can also further explain the problem. Re-adjust the belt to a tight degree and start the test. At this time, the no-load current of the motor has been reduced from the original 190A to 170A, and the load is increased to 245A. After continuous running tests, everything is normal.

As can be seen from this example of the failure, the tightness of the conveyor belt can not be ignored. Make sure that the tightness is moderate during daily inspection and maintenance. Too tight a belt not only reduces the life of the belt, but also wastes energy. If the motor does not trip, its no-load current will be about 20A, which may even affect the normal operation of the equipment. Suggestion: The conveyor belt should be loosened in the winter and tightened in the summer. That is to say, according to the change of the ambient temperature, it is suitable for the season.


The main reason for the deviation of the conveyor belt is caused by the uneven force of the conveyor belt. For this reason, I have written two articles, "The reason for the deviation of the belt after the adhesive belt", "The adjustment of the belt after the bonding belt" is available. You can look at it. , below is part of the excerpt

1. Adjust the position of the drive roller and the reversing roller

The adjustment of the drive roller and the redirecting roller is an important method for adjusting the deviation of the belt. Because a belt conveyor has multiple rollers, all rollers must be installed at a position perpendicular to the centerline of the belt conveyor.

Big will inevitably occur. The method of correcting the deviation is which side the belt is biased, and the side is stretched. As shown in Figure 1, after repeated adjustments until the belt is adjusted to a desired position. It is best to install its position accurately before adjusting the drive or reversing the drum.
