The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Belt Conveyors

- Apr 03, 2018-

After a hundred years of development, belt conveyors have become one of the important equipment for bulk material transportation. With the continuous expansion of the modern agricultural industry transportation and transportation industries, and in the transportation process, there are high requirements for material transportation, such as Increased requirements for economic reliability, high efficiency, etc. in the process of material transport.

Conveyor capacity, economic benefits, installation and maintenance, and other significant advantages of the belt conveyor have become one of the people's preferred transportation equipment, and they are more and more widely applied. At the same time, the performance requirements of the belt conveyor equipment are getting more and more high.

Belt conveyor features:

It has large conveying capacity, can continuously transport materials without interruption, and can also be loaded and unloaded without stopping during the conveying process. It does not cause intermittent transmission due to no-load, and at the same time, it does not start and brake frequently. High-speed continuous and high-speed conveying capacity can be used for its conveying equipment can not be compared.

simple structure. The belt conveyor also sets and transports materials within a certain range of lines. It has a single, compact structure, lighter weight and lower cost. Due to uniform loading and stable speed, the power consumption during the work process does not change much. Under conveyor conditions, the power required by the belt conveyor is generally small.

Long conveyor distance. Not only the single machine is increasing in the transport length, but also multiple single machines can be connected in series to form a long distance transmission line.

Disadvantages of belt conveyors:

Universality. Each type of machine is generally only capable of conveying materials of a certain type and certain conveying capacity.

The transmission line has great limitations. Each transmission line is fixed and unchanged. Once the transmission line changes, you have to rearrange the conveyor line. If you need to change the location of the loading and unloading points often, you need to install the conveyor on a special rack and use their movement to adapt to the delivery requirements.

Can not automatically take the material, in addition to a few belt conveyors can automatically retrieve material from the stack, most other equipment must be used for reclaiming.
