  • How to Troubleshoot Conveyor Belt Problems

    Jul 31, 2019A conveyor belt is a medium or an endless loop, which carries baggage, products-in-progress, or packed items, depending upon the application, to their destination. However, carrying stuff is just one of the application areas in multiple industries. It is used in lever and pulley mechanisms in the form of an endless rotational loop to process or churn a given material.

  • Drag Conveyors

    The mass movement of grain nearly eliminates separation of materials. Grain Belt conveyors require 50% or less horsepower when compared to a screw conveyor. Eliminates dust and moisture problems because the conveyor is enclosed and sealed. Because of their lower profile, the Grain Belt conveyors will take less space per bushel conveyed.

  • Bulk material handling systems

    Mar 24, 2017This is the most common belt conveyor design. One pulley (usually the one at the head of the conveyor) is coupled to a drive unit to move the belt and transport the materials. Other designs, such as conveyors with three or more pulleys, or those with two or more drive pulleys, are available. However, they are typically used in special applications.
