Main parameters of conveyor equipment

Main parameters of conveyor equipment

The main parameters are generally determined according to the requirements of the material handling system, the various conditions of the material handling location, the relevant production process and the characteristics of the materials.

1 conveying capacity: The conveying capacity of the conveyor equipment refers to the amount of material conveyed per unit time. When transporting bulk materials, it is calculated as the mass or volume of material transported per hour; when transporting a single item, it is calculated as the number of pieces delivered per hour.

2 conveying speed: increasing the conveying speed can improve the conveying capacity. When the conveyor belt is used as the traction member and the conveying length is large, the conveying speed is increasing. However, high-speed belt conveyor equipment should pay attention to vibration, noise and start and brake problems. For conveyor equipment with a chain as the traction member, the conveying speed should not be too large to prevent an increase in the dynamic load. At the same time, the conveyor equipment for the process operation shall be determined according to the production process requirements.

3 Component size: The component dimensions of the conveyor equipment include conveyor width, slat width, hopper volume, pipe diameter and container size. These component sizes directly affect the conveying capacity of the conveyor equipment.

4 Delivery length and inclination: The length of the conveyor line and the angle of inclination directly affect the total resistance of the conveyor equipment and the required power.
