First, the working principle, application range and advantages of the belt conveyor
1, the working principle of the belt conveyor
Definition: Belt conveyors are continuous conveyors with conveyor belts as traction and load-bearing components. The conveyor belt is wound around the drive roller and the reversing rollers, and the tensioning device is given an appropriate tensioning force. Under the driving of the driving device, the belt is operated by the friction between the driving roller and the conveyor belt.
Transportation of materials: The materials are continuously loaded on the conveyor belt and run along with them to achieve the transportation of the materials.
2, the scope of application of belt conveyor
Belt conveyors are also known as belt conveyors and belt conveyors. It is a machine that transfers various materials by the continuous movement of the tape. It can transport raw materials such as raw coal, ore, sand, cement, flour, etc.; it can also transport pieces such as hemp bags, equipment, etc.
Because the belt conveyor has the above characteristics, it is widely used in the departments of alchemy, coal, agriculture, hydropower, transportation, etc.
3. Transportation advantages of belt conveyor
Simple structure: only a few pieces of tape, roller, roller, drive, etc.
Easy to use: can be installed and operated safely in various places (open air or underground)
Easy maintenance: only the rollers need to be repaired frequently, the tape has a long service life and the wear is small.
Large volume of transportation and low power consumption: only the tape and materials are being dragged. The moving parts only need to overcome the frictional resistance between the idler and the tape, and the power consumption is small under the same transportation volume compared with other transporters. Because it is a long-distance transportation, the transportation volume is large, and the transportation gradient is larger than that of the automobile and the railway.
Saving manpower: Due to the simple operation, easy maintenance, less management personnel are required. Under normal circumstances, only one operator and one maintenance worker can work in one class. At the same time, it is easy to implement centralized remote control and automatic protection.
Low shipping costs: due to low power consumption, large capacity, less management staff, unit shipping costs are cheaper. In recent years, the development of long distance and large volume has become more prominent.
