What are the four major mechanical devices for belt conveyors?

Update Time:2019-02-27
The belt conveyor is a modern automation equipment, mainly through the development of automatic control, digital, networked controllers and sensors to achieve the delivery of various materials. The assembly line generally includes a traction member, a carrier member, a driving device, a tensioning device, a redirecting device, a support member, and the like. The belt conveyor can also be used to form a space conveyor line, which is generally fixed. The belt conveyor has a large conveying capacity and a long transportation distance. It can also complete several process operations simultaneously in the conveying process, and is widely used.

    The four major devices of the belt conveyor are the drive unit, the brake unit, the brake unit and the reversing unit. We will give a detailed introduction below. The first is the drive unit, which is undoubtedly the core of the entire belt conveyor. It has just been mentioned that the working principle of the belt conveyor is mainly realized by the friction transmission force, and the friction between the belt and the drum is generated by the motor and the speed reducer. The function of the drive device is to transmit friction to the conveyor belt, which in turn affects the transmission distance and the transport direction.

    Common brake devices include roller backstops, belt backstops, and tile brakes. This is a flexible addition based on the actual needs of the user. Its main function is to prevent the conveyor belt of the inclined upward movement from moving under the action of the cargo weight, causing the material to flow backward. Therefore, we say that the brake device under the belt conveyor parameters is very intelligent, especially suitable for material conveying at large dip angles.

    The belt conveyor is continuously and smoothly operated according to the friction transmission principle. When purchasing the belt conveyor, the customer will have a detailed understanding of the belt conveyor parameters according to the production needs of the relevant enterprises. Belt width, conveying length, conveying speed and conveying volume are all closely related to the belt conveyor parameters. The production capacity of the equipment is different depending on the parameters.

    Next we will talk about the tensioning device, which is divided into horizontal tension and vertical tension. The function of the tensioning device is to maintain the necessary initial tension of the conveyor belt to avoid slipping on the drive drum and to ensure that the sag of the conveyor belt is within the specified range. This is also to ensure the balance and continuity of the transfer process. The fourth important device of the belt conveyor, which we can see very clearly on the belt conveyor picture, is a roller set. The reversing device is generally at the end of the belt conveyor, and the belt is transported at different angles to reduce the transport pressure of the belt. The angle of the redirecting device is closely related to the diameter of the drum and needs to be adjusted on site according to the specific situation.
