How to Extend the Service Time of Belt Conveyor

One main factor of impacting the belt conveyor service time is the conveyor belt quality. Therefore high quality of conveyor belt is required in purchasing. Another main factor is that the sweeper is highly reliable to make sure no more material adhered to the return belt, in case they are next sent to the surface of the drive pulley and bend pulley, thus bring damage to the belt and shorten its service time:

  1. Due to how to greatly expand the service time of the belt conveyor, Followings are some suggestions:
  2. Avoid belt slipping on the drive conveyor pulley. Please find the reason and give prompt adjust if slipping appears.
  3. Check the conveyor belt joints frequently. Damaged conveyor belt joints should be repaired or replaced in time.
  4. Check the service condition of the belt conveyor roller regularly. Properlubricating grease should be added into the sealing machine in the maintenance, and also inflexible rotating rollers should be replaced immediately.
  5. High quality of lubrication should be added into all rotating parts of belt conveyor periodically according to the requirement.
  6. Ensure the good work condition of the cleaning device and replace damaged parts in time.
  7. Regularly check the conveyor belt tensity. Prompt tension is needed if the belt is loose. Meanwhile please notice the belt position, timely adjust should be made when it’s off tracking.

Why will Belt Conveyor Pulley Wear?

Belt conveyor is a kind of common conveyor equipment, often used in a variety of material transportation with large throughput, stable performance. In the process of using, pulley may occur wearing, this phenomenon is caused by two reasons:
One reason is that the design gap between roller bracket and pulley is too small, at the same time, building foundation hole vertical distance is less than the pulley support distance.In the process of belt running, overlarge belt tension will result in the change of its traction.Return accretion has not been cleared up, which will form accumulation debris and occur rubber friction.For design factors,as the space between pulley stents and pulley is too small, and the base hole of the vertical distance is less than the pulley support distance, it is not easy to handle timely, which is the main cause of pulley rubber lining wear.
Work environment factor is the second reason leads to rubber lining equipment damage phenomenon.

Belt running deviation and skid processing method of belt conveyor

  • Running deviation has many reasons, according to the different reasons , we need to different treatment:
  1. Adjust the carrying idler group.
  2. Install the self-aligning roller group.
  3. Tension adjustment, tension adjustment is an important link of belt conveyor running deviation.
  4. Adjust the driving drum and redirection roller position. And the adjustment of the redirection roller driving drum is an important part of the belt running deviation adjustment.
  5. Two-way adjust deviation of belt conveyor.
  • Belt skid treatment method:
  1. Adjustable tension when the belt conveyor in skid trip to increase tension. Sometimes tensioning trip has not enough, however, belt in the permanent deformation , the belt can be cut part to and sulfide.
  2. In the use of nylon belt or EP,tension travel is longer,  when tension trip has not enough, sulfide or increase tension to solve.
  3. Heavy hammer tensioning belt conveyor belt skid can add weight to solve,  added until not skid. But should add not too much, avoid belt  bear too much unnecessary tension and reduce the service life of the belt.
