What exactly is a flexible conveyor?

The ancient Chinese high-tube trucks and water dump trucks are the prototypes of modern bucket elevators and scraper conveyors. Do you know what a flexible conveyor is? The main features and operation debugging and detailed parameters of the flexible conveyor will be introduced below.

Here is the content list:

What are the main features?

The direction of the flexible conveyor is changeable, and the conveying direction can be flexibly changed, up to 180 degrees at the maximum

Flexible conveyor, each unit is composed of 8 rollers, each unit can be used independently, or multiple units can be connected for use, easy to install

The flexible conveyor can scale freely, and the ratio of the longest to the shortest state of a unit can reach 3 times.

What are the detailed parameters of a flexible conveyor?

① Conveying capacity: The conveying capacity of a flexible conveyor refers to the amount of material conveyed per unit time. When conveying bulk materials, it is calculated according to the mass or volume of the materials conveyed per hour; when conveying into pieces, it is calculated according to the number of pieces conveyed per hour.

② Conveying speed: Increasing the conveying speed can increase the conveying capacity. When the conveyor belt is used as a traction member and the conveying length is large, the conveying speed is increasing day by day. However, the high-speed flexible conveyor needs to pay attention to problems such as vibration, noise, start-up, and braking.

③Component size: The component size of the flexible conveyor includes the width of the conveyor belt, the width of the slat, the volume of the hopper, the diameter of the pipe, and the size of the container.

④Conveying length and inclination angle: The length and inclination angle of the transmission line affect the total resistance of the conveyor and the required power.

What is the operation and debugging?

1. The flexible conveyor should be installed on a fixed foundation according to the prescribed installation method. To avoid walking around during work, when multiple conveyors are operating in parallel, there should be a one-meter channel between the machine and the machine and between the machine and the wall.

2. Before using the flexible conveyor, check whether the operating parts, tape buckles, and load-bearing devices are normal and whether the protective equipment is complete. The tension of the tape must be adjusted to an appropriate level before starting.

3. When the tape deviation occurs during operation, stop and adjust it, and do not use it reluctantly, to avoid abrasion of the edges and increase the load.
