Generally, the main parameters are determined according to the requirements of the material handling system, the conditions of the loading and unloading sites, the relevant production process and the characteristics of the materials.
① conveying capacity: Conveyor
capacity refers to the amount of material transported per unit of time. In the delivery of bulk material, the hourly delivery of material mass or volume calculation; in the delivery of articles into pieces, the number of hours per hour delivery.
② conveying speed: improve the transmission speed can improve the transmission capacity. When the conveyor belt is used as a pulling member and the conveying length is large, the conveying speed is increased. However, high-speed operation of the belt conveyor should pay attention to vibration, noise and start, braking and other issues. For the chain as a tractor conveyor, conveyor speed should not be too large to prevent increased power load. At the same time the process of operation of the conveyor, conveyor speed should be determined in accordance with the production process requirements.
③ component size: conveyor component size, including conveyor belt width, strip width, hopper volume, pipe diameter and container size. The size of these components directly affect the transport capacity of the conveyor.
④ conveying length and inclination: the length of the transmission line and the size of the angle of a direct impact on the total resistance of the conveyor and the required power.
