Standard troughed belt conveyors are comprised of conveyor belting that rides on heavy-duty troughed idlers. Idlers range in angles from 20°-45° and are securely mounted to a structural steel frame.
These belt conveyors can be run at various inclined angles, typically between 0°- 20° (30° with cleated/chevron belting). For conveyors that operate beyond this incline, steep incline conveyors, which can operate at angles all the way up to 90°, are also available.
The diagram below shows the relationship between conveyor center-to-center (C/C) length, angle of incline, horizontal distance, and conveyor lift.
For dimensions greater than the limits of the chart, divide the given dimensions by a figure to bring length within the range of the chart. Multiply the result by the same figure to restore the proportions. Example: 160 ft. horizontal distance, 52 ft. lift. Dividing by 2 = 80 ft. and 26 ft. Intersection of vertical line from 80 ft. horizontal distance and horizontal line from 26 ft. lift = length on incline of 84 ft. at the 18º line. Actual incline conveyor length is then 84 x 2, or 168 ft.
TROUGHED SIDE WALLS
Troughed belt conveyors provide high-capacity bulk material handling. The trough design also contains and arranges material in one continuous stream, while at the same time, eliminating spillage. The troughed belt can also help shield material from unforeseen forces, such as airflow from other equipment operating nearby.
DUST CONTROL AT LOAD POINTS
Integrated skirtboard and exhaust ports provide additional control for each customer’s specific application. These are usually located at the tail section of the conveyor where the material is loaded onto the belt. This design centers the material on the belt while also containing dust and fines. A dust pick-off point is often located at the top of the discharge hood.
Heavy-duty box truss frames are available in several standard depths. This type of frame construction is used when long spans are required between support points. In addition to span length, proper truss selection also accounts for load factors such as wind and snow.
Conveyors that do not require long spans between supports may benefit from the channel frame design. Because they are often located close to grade, a cantilevered walkway is not required. Above all, channel frame conveyors receive the same precision engineering expected from all FEECO material handling equipment.
