Belt conveyors can be used to transport product in a straight line or through changes in elevation or direction. In certain applications they can also be used for static accumulation or cartons.The belt conveyor can be used for horizontal transportation or inclined transportation in a convenient way, and widely used in modern industrial enterprises, such as: mine tunnel, mine surface transportation system, open-pit and concentrator.
Compared with other transport equipment, such as Motorcycle, belt conveyor (http://www.chinaquarry.com/products_show/belt_conveyor.html) is the best efficient continuous coal transportation equipment with advantages of long transmission distance, large volume, continuous conveyor, etc., and operate reliably, easy to implement automation and centralization control; especially for high yield and efficient mine, belt conveyor has become the key equipment for coal mining and mechatronics technology.
Besides, the main features of belt conveyor are in the following:
1.Belt conveyors can be used to stock-pile or reclaim bulk materials. Radial stackers are used for creating large piles of materials such as wood chips, coal or ore. Reclaim belt conveyors are located under the piles to carry the materials into the plant for processing.
2.Belt conveyors have proven to be a reliable method of conveying bulk materials. Industry standards for the design of belt conveyors have been developed by the Conveyor Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (CEMA).
3.Belt conveyors require less horsepower to operate than other types of conveyors. Bulk materials are carried on top of the belt and remain static, therefore requiring much less energy to move.
What’s more, The belt conveyor mainly has the following characteristics: the body can flex easily with a belt-warehousing, the tail can elongate or shorten complying with the coal face; directly lay on the roadway floor without setting up foundation; compact structure, light and handy rack and...
