These adjustment methods can make the EP conveyor belt transport 50 tons more per hour!

With the increasing demand and efficiency of modern transportation, long-distance, large capacity, high belt speed and other types of transportation systems have become a trend and gradually become popular, but with it, the resistance when conveying materials increases. The main resistances of belt conveyors are commonly the material’s crush resistance, the material’s flexure resistance, the repeated flexure resistance of the conveyor belt, the crushing resistance of the conveyor belt on the roller, and the idler’s movement resistance… In order to overcome the main resistance, the conveyor consumes a lot of energy such as electricity, equipment loss and operating costs during the operation. Therefore, it is becoming more and more important for enterprises to reduce the resistance of the conveyor system. This article lists 6 adjustment conveyor lines The effective method of resistance, if all can be achieved, will greatly improve the transportation efficiency of the conveyor belt:

  1. Keep the motor bearing lubricating: due to the friction of the conveyor, there will be some resistance when conveying the material, especially when the conveying time is too long, which will cause the lubrication of the machine to be insufficient, it is necessary to perform mechanical parts to feed the motor lubricate for lubrication, such as the lubrication of bearings and accessories

  2. Improve the method of connecting the EP conveyor belt: The belt splicing is changed to a vulcanized solicing (both cold and hot joint way) instead of a mechanical joint. This can keep the conveyor joint smooth and reduce the resistance of the splicing section through the conveyor line.

  3. Lower roller resistance: 50% -85% of the main resistance of the entire conveyor equipment for the rotation resistance of the rollers of the conveyor accessories and the forward resistance of the conveyor.

  It is recommended that the rollers use high-performance bearings and high-quality seals, and maintain a small axial run-out (less than 2mm). This will effectively reduce the rotation resistance of the rollers while maintaining the distance between the two groups of rollers at about 1.5 meters. The distance between the returning rollers is maintained at about 3 meters, which can effectively support the conveyor belt so that the sag of the conveyor belt does not exceed the limit value to reduce the resistance.

  4. Select a EP conveyor belt with better elasticity and hardness, which not only has good groove formation but also reduces the crushing resistance of the EP conveyor belt.

  5. Deviation of the EP conveyor belt: The main conveying material carrier of the conveying equipment is the conveyor belt. When the material is running, the conveyor belt is likely to cause mechanical deviation, and it will also bring different resistance to the belt conveyor. In order to minimize the running resistance of the belt conveyor, adjust the deviation of the belt in time to reduce the deviation of the EP conveyor belt.

  6.  Clean up the garbage: Clean up the garbage generated in the transportation process in time. Make the belt conveyor tension to the best state.
