Belt conveyor(hereafter referred to as belt conveyor) is suitable for conveying bulk materials or packed materials. It has lots of advantages of large throughput, low operating cost, wide range of application. It not only can be transported by single belt conveyor, but also can be horizontally or inclined transported by many sets of machine or with other transport equipment together according to requirements of the conveying process.
The belt conveyor is mainly used in coal mining, quarry, metal mining, chemical industry, port grain etc.
Belt Conveyors can work at the ambient temperature between - 10 ℃ and 40 ℃, The belt will be chosen reasonably on the basis of the different temperature of the materials. and the temperature is generally not higher than 60℃. It must use heat-resisting type belt when conveying higher temperature of the material (Ⅰtype 100℃,Ⅱtype 125℃,Ⅲtype 150℃). It need to choose oil resistance, acid and alkali resistant rubber belt or plastic belt when conveying acid, alkali, oil material and material with organic solvent properties. It should use antiflaming conveyor belt in the fire workplace. With the development of technology, in order to convey material in special cases, the belt that can resist high temperature has been researched.
