Design features of belt conveyors with spatial track for transporting bulk materials

V.I.Galkin

Abstract: The issues associated with conditions of exploitation of belt conveyors with curved track are examined in the article. Examples of exploitation of such conveyors at mining enterprises are given in the article too. The description of the design features of idlers installed at the horizontal curved sections of a conveyor track is represented. The use of shortened average roller at the carring branch of the belt conveyor is examined too. The substantiation of the necessity of the use of intermediate drives is given.

Key words: belt conveyor, spatial track, curved section, radius of curvature, idler, belt, intermediate drive
