Classification of conveyor

Nov. 27, 2019

Conveyors are generally classified by the presence or absence of traction members.

A conveyor with a traction member generally includes a traction member, a load bearing member, a driving device, a tensioning device, a redirection device, a support member, and the like. Traction parts are used to transmit tractive force. Canvas conveyor belts, traction chains or wire ropes can be used; load-bearing members are used to carry materials, such as hoppers, brackets or spreaders. Brakes (stoppers) and other components; tensioning devices generally have two types: screw type and heavy hammer type, which can keep the traction member a certain tension and sag to ensure the normal operation of the conveyor; the support member is used to support the traction member or The supporting member can be a trough idler, a roller, etc.

The structural features of a conveyor with traction members are: the material being transported is loaded in a load-bearing member connected to the traction member, or directly on the traction member (such as a conveyor belt), and the traction member bypasses each roller or sprocket They are connected to form a closed loop including an on-load branch that transports material and an unloaded branch that does not transport material, and the continuous movement of the traction member is used to transport the material.

There are many types of conveyors, mainly belt conveyors, plate conveyors, trolley conveyors, escalators, moving walkways, scraper conveyors, buried scraper conveyors, bucket conveyors, and bucket elevators. , Hanging conveyors and aerial ropeways.

The structure and composition of conveyors without traction parts are different, and the working components used to convey materials are also different. Their structural characteristics are: the use of rotary or reciprocating motion of the working member, or the use of media in the pipeline to make the material forward. For example, the working member of a roller conveyor is a series of rollers, which rotates to convey the material; the working member of the screw conveyor is a spiral, which rotates in the trough to push the material along the trough; The component is a trough, which is reciprocated to convey the materials placed therein.

Belt conveyor

Belt conveyor is the most important modern bulk material conveying equipment. It is widely used in electric power, food, metallurgy, chemical industry, coal, mining, port, building materials and other fields. Belt conveyors have gradually begun to replace automobiles and locomotives in some areas because of the characteristics of a wide range of conveying materials, a wide range of conveying capabilities, strong adaptability of conveying routes, flexible loading and unloading, and high reliability and low cost transport. Becoming the main equipment for bulk transportation, playing an increasingly important role in the socio-economic structure. In particular, the electric drum-driven belt conveyor has incomparable advantages and development potential in the bulk material conveying process of the grain depot. Therefore, we open up our thinking, strive to innovate, and combine our original knowledge and existing data to control it. Make innovations. In this process, we test our own innovation ability to make it more widely used in various fields of the national economy and play a more important role.
