Pay attention to these details, the working life of the EP conveyor belt can reach at least 5 years

1. The relationship between the diameter of conveyor pulley and the layer of the EP conveyor belt, the matching of the drive pulley, the tail pulley, and the requirements for the trough angle of the conveyor bracket should be selected reasonably according to the design requirements of the conveyor.

2. The feeding direction should follow the running direction of the conveyor belt. In order to reduce the impact on the EP conveyor belt when the material falls, the chute should be adopted to reduce the material drop distance. The receiving section of the conveyor belt should shorten the distance among conveyor bracket groups and use impact idlers. The material blank section should adopt a soft and moderate blanking plate to prevent the blanking plate from being too hard and scratching the belt surface of the conveyor belt.

3. Prevent the conveyor belt from overload starting.

4. Deviations in the EP conveyor belt should be promptly corrected.

5. Conveyor belts of different types and specifications should not be connected together.

6. The type, structure, specifications, and the number of layers of the conveyor belt should be reasonably selected according to the conditions of use.

7. The running speed of the conveyor belt should generally not be greater than 2.5m / s. Materials with large block sizes and hard material should use low speed as much as possible.

8. When the conveyor is in use, if there is a lack of supporting rollers, it should be added and repaired in time; if the supporting rollers are covered by the material, it would cause the rotation to be ineffective, so it has to prevent the leakage of materials from being caught between the conveyor roller and the conveyor belt. Pay attention to the lubrication of the moving part of the conveyor belt, but do not oil the conveyor belt.

9. To avoid the EP conveyor belt from being blocked by the frame, pillars or block materials, to prevent bumping and tearing, when found that the conveyor belt is partially damaged, timely repair to avoid damage section expansion.
