Maximizing Conveyor Performance-Industry Standards verses Real World Application

Contrasting industry standards with real world applications, attendees of this session will learn about conveyor belt construction, operational forces, transition distances, tracking issues and other performance influences. This interactive presentation will provide the information necessary to better understand and troubleshoot real world belt conveyor performance issues. Both U.S. standards and International nomenclature will be covered.

  1. Learn how conveyor belt construction and quality is designed to operate on a conveyor structure.
  2. Understand rated tension versus operating tension and how to calculate both.
  3. Know how to diagnose and resolve transition distance violations.
  4. Conveyor belt splices both mechanical and vulcanized.
