general class of conveyor has many applications in bulk handling and heavy
industries such as mining. For lighter package and tote handling, this
conveyor is generally used where contact slipping is of concern.
Examples of this are incline and decline conveyors and metering belts that
tightly control gaps and involve accelerations on the loads. Although
a simpler class compared to roller conveyor, many variations are common :
Conveyor – a class of belt
conveyor that drives a continuous woven flat bed over a flat (usually) metal
surface. Very economical in construction this conveyor is well suited
to medium length transport applications without accumulation requirements.
Belt on Roller
Conveyor– in the same
class as Slider Bed, this belt conveyor runs on a bed of passive roller that
reduce friction and power requirements. Slightly more costly than
Slider Bed, it is usually used to accommodate heavier loads or greater
distances with a given horsepower class of motor.
Belt Curves – a special shaped
belt and tapered drive rollers allow a continuous flat surface around
(usually) 90 degree curves. Typically found in applications where
loads of size variations would make roller curves impractical.
Spiral Belt Curve – a very
specialized class of belt curve that forms a continuous helix shape for
close quarters inclines or declines Saves a lot of floor space for
elevation changes, but are relatively expensive.
