if effective belt pull f u cannot be calculated, maximum belt pull f 1 can be determined from the installed motor power p m as per the given formula and used to select a belt type. with calculable effective pull f u. conveyor and processing belts * accumulated goods
mechanical capacity calculated on the drive drum p a mechanical capacity required p m c 2 indicates the max. permitted belt pull per unit width for the belt type: c 2 = ε max. k 1% you can find details on the maximum elongations in the product data sheets. if these are not available, the following can be assumed (but not guaranteed): f n1 ≤ c 2 [ ] b 0
ular can reduce the load-bearing belt width considerably. reduce the figure for the load-bearing belt width b 0 by a further 20 % to take tolerances for per-forations and fabric into account. f u · v p a = [kw] 1000 if the value is larger than cf 1 2, b 0 a stronger belt type (with a higher k 1% value) must be used.
generally, belt capacity (kg/sec) is given as: b.c = 3.6 × a × × v...(2) where a = belt sectional area (m2); = material density (kg/m3); and v = belt speed (m/s) the mass of material mm (live load) per meter (kg/m) loaded on a belt conveyor is given as: v c mm 3.6...(3) where c = conveyor capacity (4 tones/hr); and v = belt speed (1.25 m/s). mm =0.889 kg.
step 1 estimation of surcharge angle. (typically low angle of repose will result in a lower surcharge angle and vice versa.) angle of repose.
exact calculation should be made. the following formulae all involve point c, the start of the concave curve. but, for the ﬁrst approximation, point c will be used. to prevent the belt from lifting off the idlers with the belt conveyor running, the formula is: (1) where: r 1 = minimum radius, ft, to prevent belt from lifting off the idlers t c
we use a modified version of the conveyor equipment manufacturers association guidelines. the primary equation for effective tension, te, is as follows: te = lkt (kx + kywb + 0.015wb) + wm (lky + h) + tp + tam + tac. the rulmeca power calculation program will enable you to: calculate belt conveyor power requirements.

134 行 conveyor capacity is determined by the belt speed, width and the angle of the belt - and can be expressed as. q = ρ a v (1) where . q = conveyor capacity (kg/s, lb/s) ρ = density of transported material (kg/m 3, lb/ft 3) a = cross-sectional area of the bulk solid on the belt (m 2, ft 2)
the belt conveyor is used for conveying different materials from one location to another. the different components of a belt conveyor system typically are electric drives, pulleys, idlers, and a long belt. a simple conveyor system may look like below: the basics of the calculations of conveyor belt design parameters

the belt and the idler rolls can be calculated by using the multiplying factor k x . k x is a force in lbs/ft of conveyor length to rotate the idler rolls, carrying and return, and to cover the sliding resistance of the belt on the idler rolls. the k x value required to rotate the idlers is calculated using equation (3).
conveyor loadings may sometime exceed the recommended % of loading, listed in the materials table. considerations as to the material characteristics may justify up to 95% loading of tubular or shrouded conveyors. the following table lists maximum speeds limited with regard to the percentage of loading normally recommended for the specific
conveyor belt is normally referred to as the 'carcass.' in a sense, the carcass is the heart of the conveyor belt since it must: 1. provide the tensile strength necessary to move the loaded belt. 2. absorb the impact of the impinging material being loaded onto the conveyor belt. 3. provide the bulk and lateral stiffness
belt capacity chart the following conveyor belt capacity charts show tons per hour (tph) based on material weighing 100 lbs. per cubic foot, 20° material surcharge angle with three equal length rolls on troughing idlers. capacity (tph) = .03 x belt speed (fpm) x material weight (lb. per cu. ft.)
by belt velocity provides volume of material being transported in unit time. thus belt conveyor’s ability to transport material is volumetric in nature. the transported volume is converted into tonees (1 metric tonee = 1000 kg) by multiplying it with the ‘bulk density’ of the material, in the condition as it is on the belt.
6 system components in its simplest form, a belt conveyor consists of a driving pulley (often the head pulley), a tail pulley, the tensioning device, a conveyor belt, and the supporting structure with the belt support (slider bed or carrying rollers).
our sophisticated belt wizard belt calculation tool provides complete tension and power analysis. features include: warnings when design limits are exceeded or are insufficientmal service life at the lowest cost of ownership. importantly, a custom-designed belt can lower your total cost of ownership as it is tailored precisely for your conveyor

determine the overall diameter of the roller plus the thickness of the belt. for example, if the conveyor belt you are using is 1/2-inch thick, the overall diameter is the core diameter, 8 inches, plus twice the thickness of the belt, 1 inch, for a total of 9 inches. multiply the overall diameter by itself. in the example 9 times 9 is 81.
for ascending and horizontal belts if cos < 1 then the tangent line shall be drawn at the point of separation (see figure 1). if cos = 1, the tangent line shall be drawn in the direction of belt travel (see figure 1). for descending belts if cos < 1 and angle of separation is more than angle of inclination, , of the conveyor belt
