Belt conveyors are suitable for transporting a wide range of items and are one of the most versatile types of conveyors available
When to use a belt conveyor...

Since belts are flat surfaces, the size of the product doesn't matter and belt conveyors can easily transport small items or loose materials.

One thing to consider, however, is that sharp or extremely heavy items may damage the belt.

Very heavy items may also cause problems with a standard belt conveyor and although heavy-duty belts can be used, for basic product transport a roller conveyor is often more cost-effective when necessary.

Choosing the Right Belt Conveyor

In mining, and other industries, as well as in everyday life, belt conveyor systems are an integral part of continuous material handling.

Environmentally friendly conveying principles due to efficient energy demands, large parameter ranges, and transportation of bulk materials with different properties and grain sizes, very high operational reliability, safety, and system availability are only some of the reasons for the increasing demand for belt conveyors.

Whether stationary or mobile, standalone or as part of a complex installation – We have suitable conveyor systems with a proven track record of outstanding performance for every application.

Belt Conveyors for Industrial and Warehouse Applications

A belt conveyor system can be implemented with a very economical cost per foot of the conveyor for many warehouse and industrial applications. Because it includes just one motor and a simple belt system they are quite simple. Hence they’re often one of the first productivity improvement purchases that a growing company will make. Although there are many belt conveyor types, the simplest style is known as a slider bed style. When linked together with sensors and other automation equipment a conveyor belt system can greatly enhance productivity.

The weakness for them though is that generally they are only used for transport applications. This means that the belt conveyor equipment just moves the product from point A to point B. This may be sufficient, but a belt conveyor cannot typically buffer or accumulate the parts. Nor are they typically used as a working surface for production team members. As one of the leading belt conveyor manufacturers, GCS can guide you through the pros and cons of the different types of belt conveyors. We’ll also help you compare if another different type of conveyor would be a better choice.

Advantages of Using Belt Conveyors

1. Ideal For Conveying A Wide Variety Of Bulk Materials – From Sluggish To Free Flowing And Small To Large Lump Size.

2. Able To Handle Large Conveying Capacities – Up To 50,000 Cubic Feet Per Hour.

Frequently asked questions about belt conveyors

What is a Belt Conveyor?

A belt conveyor is a system designed to transport or move physical items like materials, goods, even people from one point to another. Unlike other conveying means that employ chains, spirals, hydraulics, etc., belt conveyors will move the items using a belt. It involves a loop of a flexible material stretched between rollers that are actuated by an electrical motor.

Because the items being transported vary in nature, the belt material also varies by the system it is employed in. It commonly comes as a polymer or a rubber belt.

Why choose a belt conveyor?

A belt conveyor can move light loads.

It is characterized by the type of conveyor belt used (material, texture, thickness, width) and by the position of the motor unit (on the end, central, left, right, underneath, etc.). Some conveyor belts are designed to withstand very high temperatures. Rigid acetal belts can carry heavier loads.

Unlike roller conveyors, belt conveyors can transport both bulk and packaged products.

What type of belt conveyor should you choose?

There are several types of belt conveyors:

Smooth belt conveyors: These conveyors are a classic staple for most conveying applications. Parts, individual packages and bulk goods are transported by means of a conveyor belt.

Modular belt conveyor: modular belt conveyors are a middle range between belt conveyors and chain conveyors. A modular belt consists of individual plastic modules, usually connected to each other by hinges. The materials of a modular belt are more resistant and can be used to convey heavy and abrasive parts, as well as hot or sharp-edged parts. Unlike chain conveyors, the modular belt conveyor’s design means that it requires less maintenance (it is very easy to clean) and links can be replaced quickly and easily. It is also technically simpler to implement.

There are also hinged belt conveyors, metal belt conveyors etc.

Applications of Belt Conveyors

Conveyor belts have a wide range of applications across industries. These include:

Mining Industry

Bulk handling

Processing plants

Taking ores from the shaft to the ground level

Automotive Industry

Assembly line conveyors

CNC machines’ scrap conveyors

Transport and Courier Industry

Baggage handling conveyors at airports

Packaging conveyors at courier dispatch

Retailing Industry

Warehouse packaging

Till point conveyors

Other conveyor applications are:

Food handling industries for grading and packaging

Power generation conveying coal to the boilers

Civil and construction as escalators

Advantages of Belt Conveyors

The advantages of belt conveyors include:

It is a cheap way of moving materials over long distances

It doesn’t degrade the product being conveyed

Loading can be done at any place along the belt.

With trippers, the belts can offload at any point in the line.

They do not produce as much noise as their alternatives.

Products can be weighed at any point in the conveyor

They can have long operating times can even work for months without stopping

Can be designed to be mobile as well as stationary.

Have less dangerous hazards to human injury

Low Maintenance costs

The Conveyor Runs to One Side at a Certain Point in the System.

The causes of this would include:

Material building upon the idlers or something causing the idlers to stick

Idlers no longer run square to the path of the conveyor.

Conveyor frame tilted, crocked, or no longer level.

Belt was not spliced squarely.

Belt is not loaded equally, probably loaded off-center.

The Conveyor Belt Slips

The causes of this would include:

Traction is poor between belt and pulley

Idlers stuck or not rotating freely

Worn out pulley legging (the shell around the pulley that helps increase friction).

Overstretching of the Belt

The causes of this would include:

Belt tensioner is too tight

Belt material selection not done properly, probably “under belted”

Conveyor counterweight is too heavy

The gap between idler rolls is too long

The Belt Wears Excessively at the Edges

The causes of this would include:

Belt is loaded off-center

High impact of material on the belt

Belt running against conveyor structure

Material Spillage

Material is trapped between belt and pulley
