1, The conveyor should have sufficient stability and strength under normal working conditions.

2,The design and installation of electrical devices must comply with the provisions of GB 4064 and GBJ 212.

3, Without the consent of the design or manufacturing unit, the user should not make changes that affect the safety requirements of the original design, manufacture, and installation of the conveyor.

4, The conveyor must be selected according to the characteristics of the material and the delivery volume. It must not be overloaded. It must prevent clogging and spillage and keep the transportation smooth.

4.1 The conveyor belt should have a sufficient width suitable for the specific load and characteristics of the conveyed material;

4.2 The inclination of the conveyor must be designed to prevent the material from slipping or rolling under normal working conditions;

4.3 The conveyor should be equipped with a control device to ensure uniform feeding;

4.4 The slope of the hopper or chute wall, the position and size of the discharge port must ensure that the material automatically flows out by its own gravity;

4.5 The receiving point should be set in the horizontal section, and set the material guide plate. When the receiving point must be set at the inclined section, auxiliary loading facilities shall be provided;

4.6 The vertical tensioning device section should be equipped with a blanking baffle; 1.4.7 The receiving point should take measures to reduce the impact force

5, When conveying viscous materials, the surface of the drum and the belt surface of the return section should be equipped with appropriate cleaning devices. It is advisable to set up material blocking scrapers in front of the rollers at the rear of the inclined belt. Eliminate all hidden dangers that may cause the conveyor belt to deviate.

6, The inclined conveyor shall be equipped with safety devices to prevent overspeed or reverse rotation. This device plays a protective role when the power is cut off or fails.

7, The moving parts on the conveyor, whether manual or self-propelled, shall be equipped with limit devices after parking.

8, It is strictly forbidden for people to cross over or pass under conveyors without special passages.

9, When the conveyor crosses the worktable or above the channel, a protective device to prevent the material from falling should be installed.

10, High-strength bolt connection must be handled according to the design technical requirements and tightened with special tools.
