Conveyor Take Up Arrangement | Take Up Pulley | Screw Take Up Conveyor | Quick Take Up Master Cylinder

Conveyor Take-up Arrangement: All belt conveyors require the use of some form of take-up device for the following reasons: To ensure adequate tension of the belt leaving the drive pulley so as to avoid any slippage of the belt To ensure proper belt tension at the loading and other points along the conveyor To compensate for changes in belt length

Pulley: The diameters of standard pulleys are: 200, 250, 315, 400, 500, 630, 800, 1000, 1250, 1400 and 1600 mm. pulley may be straight faced or crowned. The crown serves to keep the belt centered. The height of the crown is usually 0.5% of the pulley width, but not less than 4 mm. The pulley diameter Dp depends on the

Belt Conveyor Drive Arrangement | Belt Conveyor Design Calculation

Drive arrangement: In belt conveyors the driving power is transmitted to the belt by the driving pulley which is rotated by an electric motor. The basic mechanism of transmission of power from the pulley to the belt is based on the theory of friction drive. The fundamental equation for a belt conveyor drive is given by: (The Euler’s equation) T1

Idlers: Conveyor belts are usually supported on idler rollers. In some cases they are supported by solid wood or runway of steel sheet or a combination support comprising of the two types of supports placed alternatively. There are two basic types of idlers: Carrying idlers Return idlers Carrying Idlers: The most commonly used type of carrying idlers used for handling
