5 Ways To Get Through To Your Belt Conveyor

Date: Dec. 21, 2020

During the working process of the belt conveyor, if a sudden shutdown or failure to work normally occurs, it will affect the normal operation of the entire production line and cause serious economic losses. Therefore, it is necessary to master the technology of its installation and operation.

1.Main installation sequence

The installation sequence of the main body should be to install the headstock first, then the middle frame of each section, and finally install the tailstock. Before installing the frame, the center position of the conveyor should be determined. All the working operation centers of the conveyor should be in a straight line.

In the process of installing each frame, the longitudinal center position of the conveying distance should be consistent, and the longitudinal horizontal tilt angle must be within the allowable range.

The error range of the single-row rack to the centerline should be plus or minus 0.1mm, and the error of the conveyor to the center of the rack should be less than 35mm. After ensuring that the placement of all single-section racks is correct, all parts can be connected. After the connection is completed, the firmness of the installation and the accuracy of the center position should be checked.

2. Installation of the drive unit

Make sure that the drive shaft of the belt conveyor is perpendicular to the centerline of the belt conveyor, and ensure that the centerline of the conveyor overlaps with the center of the drive roller width, and the traditional axis and the axis of the reducer should also be It is parallel.

Also, all shafts and rollers should be leveled first to ensure good operation without load and power. The horizontal error range of the shaft should be within 0.5-1.5mm.

In the process of installing the driving device, the corresponding tensioning device can also be installed at the same time. The centerline of the belt conveyor and the roller axis of the tensioning device should also be in a vertical state.

3. Installation of rollers in various parts

This step is an important part of installing the belt conveyor, and it has an important influence on the working efficiency and service life of the belt conveyor.

After installing the frame, the transmission device, and the tensioning device one after another, the operation of installing the supporting roller frame and the upper and lower supporting rollers should be carried out. The conveyor belt should gradually assume the shape of a curved arc, and the spacing between the supporting roller frames of the turning section should be half of the normal roller frame. After installation, ensure that it has sufficient flexibility and reliability.

4. Various debugging work after installation

In the process of installing the frame, roller, and roller, the following conditions should also be met at the same time:

(1) All the rollers should be kept parallel and arranged in rows with each other.

(2) All the rollers should also be kept horizontal and parallel and arranged in rows with each other.

(3) After the current preparation work is completed, the rack can be installed on the floor or foundation. After the belt conveyor is fixed, the feeding device and unloading device can be installed.

(4)All supporting structure frames should be kept horizontally parallel and in a straight line state, so when the process of installing the driving roller and the supporting roller frame is completed, the horizontal position and the center position of the conveyor should be corrected immediately.

5. Idling test machine

The operation of the idling test machine should be carried out in advance to ensure that the conveyor belt works without deviation. At the same time, the operating rules of the rollers, the contact degree of the conveyor belt surface and the guide plate, and the operating temperature of the driving part are also All should meet the requirements of use. Necessary debugging work must be carried out, and the test machine can be operated only after all are confirmed to be correct.
