What are the Technical advantages of belt conveyors?

Update Time:2020-05-07

Belt conveyors have played more and more important role in many industrial fields for bulk material handling solutions, such as mining quarry, railway, port, coal, cement, electrical power etc, and why belt conveyors are quite popular?  It is because of belt conveyor's perfect technology advantages. And what are the advantages? SKE machinery will take you to have a look.

1. First , t it runs reliably. Belt conveyors are used in many important production sites that require continuous operation, such as the transportation of coal in power plants, the transportation of bulk materials in steel and cement plants, and the loading and unloading of ships in ports. In case lockdown on these occasions, the loss is huge. When necessary, the belt conveyor can work continuously one shift after another.

2, The power consumption of the belt conveyor is low. Because there is almost no relative movement between the material and the conveyor belt, it not only makes the running resistance small (about 1 / 3-1 / 5 of the scraper conveyor), but also has little wear and breakage on the cargo and high productivity. These are conducive to reducing production costs.

3.The conveyor line of the belt conveyor is strong and flexible. The line length depends on the needs. The short is a few meters, and the length can reach more than 10km. It can be installed in a small tunnel, or it can be set up above the ground traffic chaos and dangerous areas.

4.According to the requirements of the technological process, the belt conveyor can receive materials from one or more points very flexibly. It can also discharge to multiple points or sections. When feeding material to the conveyor belt at several points at the same time (such as the conveyor under the coal bunker of the coal preparation plant) or at any point along the length of the belt conveyor, the material is fed to the conveyor belt through the uniform feeding equipment. The machine becomes a main transmission line.

The belt conveyor can take the material from the tunnel under the material pile of the coal storage yard, and can mix different materials of each pile when needed. The material can be simply discharged from the head of the conveyor, or it can be discharged at any point along the length of the conveyor belt through a plow unloader or a mobile unloading tripper conveyor.
