The transmission force of the belt conveyor comes from the conflict between the belt and the transmission drum. If the conflict force is too small, belt slippage may occur, so the tension of the belt conveyor belt directly affects whether it can run stably, and the belt conveyor will inevitably encounter various resistances during the operation.
Generally, according to the nature of resistance, it can be divided into uniform resistance and gathering resistance. The uniform distribution resistance mainly includes: deformation resistance of the conveyer belt, crush resistance of the conveyer belt on the idler roller, and resistance during the idler roller operation. The gathering resistance mainly includes: the resistance of the redirection roller, the discharge resistance of the conveyor belt, the resistance of the loading point, the resistance of the sweeper, and so on.
The importance of belt conveyor tensioning equipment In the belt conveyor operating system, the importance of the tensioning equipment is mainly reflected in the following aspects, so that the separation points of the conveyor belt and the tumble roller have appropriate tension and conflict to prevent belt slippage. The traction of the belt conveyor comes from the conflict between the belt and the transmission drum, and the difference in tension between the point of encounter and the point of departure.
If the tension at the parting point is lacking, the conflict between the belt and the roller will be reduced. If the belt conveyor is not operated, the belt will slip at the parting point. Therefore, in order to make the belt run smoothly, the tensioning equipment ensures Provide a sufficient tension at the separation point, and then make the belt conveyor get the conflicting force required for stable operation.
