Calculations include conveyor capacity, belt speed, conveyor height and length, mass of idlers and idler spacing, belt tension, load due to belt, inclination angle of the conveyor

Belt tension A conveyor belt always experiences a tensile load due to rotation of electric drive, weight of the conveyed materials and idlers. Belt tension at steady state can be calculated as (6.6) T b = 1.37 215; f 215; L 215; g 215; 2 215; m i + 2 215; m b + m m 215; cos δ + H 215; g 215; m m.

All of the issues listed previously could easily lead to conveyor belt shutdown, which often forces machine and production downtime something that obviously needs to be avoided in todays busy, 24/7 production facilities. Belt Tension Methods There are several commercial methods for providing and adjusting conveyor belt tension.

1114ensp;0183;ensp;belt tension can be determined by making the necessary additions to the tail tension, T t, or subtractions from the head pulley tension, T 1. Refer to Chapter 6, Belt Tension at Any Point, X, on Conveyor Length, page 117, and Problem 4 in Chapter 6. The decision to work forward from T t , or to work backward from T 1, depends

218ensp;0183;ensp;Proper conveyor belt tension is important to the machine's function and efficiency. The first factor to calculate when figuring out conveyor belt tension is the tension needed to move the empty belt, or TC. You'll need to know the weight of the conveyor belt components, or CW, the belt length, or L, and the friction factor for normal empty belt

Material spillage, belt and splice failure, belt liftoff in vertical curves and poor tracking are a few examples of situations where knowledge of the dynamic tensions would be of benefit in eliminating a problem. The difficulty is that measuring dynamic tension at arbitrary points along the conveyor is

1127ensp;0183;ensp;Both too much or too little tension can damage the conveyor. Too much tension. A conveyor belt with too much tension can lead to excessive wear on parts such as bearings and shafts. The extra pressure can also cause the pulleys to break and wear down prematurely. Tracking problems can also arise leading to uneven belt wear and, if not addressed, many additional issues with the conveyor. Too little tension. A belt with not enough tension can cause the belt

Second, additional tension must be added to the effective Belt Tension (Te) to prevent slippage on the drive pulley. This is called Slack Side Tension (Ts), or commonly called T2. Ts = D x Te. D = Drive factor (See Table B in Engineering Handbook). Next, the

This is the strength measurement used to determine the proper belt for the system. The second measurement is the Ultimate Tensile Strength of the belt.
