How does an Incline Belt conveyor work?
A Basic Incline belt conveyors work by incorporating two rollers; One being an idler pulley and another being a powered pulley.
These rollers are then set into a solid frame typically made from steel, stainless steel, or aluminum profile.
Manufacturers will fold this frame using a brake press, as a solid C section with a reverse bend, or Create two parallel Z sections to be joined together.
When using a Z Section the two frames will be joined together using a cross brace. Cross braces are typically welded bars and/or bolted cross members.
The Slider bed of the conveyor will usually be decided based on the application of the conveyor. In warehousing, slider beds will usually be made up either using rollers or folded steel sections called bedpans/trays or bed sections.
The advantage of using bed rollers over pans would be that the load over the drive will be decreased dramatically, as the friction derived from the belt is far less.
This advantage is particularly important when considering the drive size required to pull the necessary force to be placed on the belt.
And can also be an advantage when considering the total power consumption of a belt conveyor system.
Drive Locations can also play an important part in a belt conveyor. Typically a drive would sit at the end of the conveyor to pull the belt in the correct direction of travel.
When belt conveyors are required to be functional in forward and reverse directions or considering a belt length over 10m, it will be fairly common practice to expect these conveyors to have a centrally located drive unit.
