What are the common types of belt conveyors?
Belt conveyors are usually used for conveying loose materials or finished items. Generally, the models and types are divided according to the conveying materials and the conveying process. In the following content, we have sorted out the four more common types of belt conveyors.
1. Mobile belt conveyor
The mobile belt conveyor is a continuous conveying and loading equipment with high working efficiency, flexible movement and good maneuverability. The mobile belt conveyor can design the use length and lifting height according to the actual situation such as the user’s conveying requirements. The general conveying height can reach 1.2-1.8m according to the belt width and conveying length.
2. Large angle belt conveyor
The freely expandable rubber corrugated vertical “skirt” is glued to both sides of the flat rubber conveyor belt, and the box-shaped bucket is formed by means of a transverse partition with a certain strength and elasticity glued between the skirts, so as to realize the material in the bucket. Medium and continuous conveying, this is the large inclination belt conveyor. In general, the large-inclination belt conveyor is suitable for dispersed powder, granular and fine paste and liquid materials, such as coal, gravel, limestone, sand, clay, sand sintering powder, sawdust, etc.
3. Climbing belt conveyor
The climbing belt conveyor is a kind of belt conveyor that can realize the lifting and conveying of objects at a large angle by adding bars, jigs, skirts, etc. to the belt. The climbing type can not only be used for ordinary material transportation, but also can meet the special requirements of oil resistance, corrosion resistance, anti-static and other material transportation.
4. Telescopic belt conveyor
As the name suggests, the retractable belt conveyor is different from other conveyors in that it can realize free expansion and contraction, and it is a conveying equipment that can control the conveying length of the belt conveyor. The retractable belt conveyor can be used in conjunction with other conveying equipment while achieving efficient conveying, and is widely used in automated production. It is suitable for the transportation of materials with high temperature, heavy weight, large volume and abrasiveness, such as ash, cement clinker, iron slag, slag, limestone, coke, gravel, etc.
The above content is for the common types of belt conveyors. Belt conveyors are mainly used for horizontal or inclined transportation. According to the requirements of the conveying process, it can be conveyed by a single unit, or can be composed of multiple units or combined with other conveying equipment to form a horizontal or inclined conveying system to meet the needs of different layouts of the operation line.
