Frequently Asked Questions About Chain Driven Rollers

Conveyor Belt

Conveyor belt (conveyor belt), also known as conveyor belt, is the transmission medium in the transmission belt system.

A conveyor belt system is a type of drive system that consists of two or more pulleys with conveyor belts on them, which can be rotated indefinitely to move the belt. One or more of the pulleys will have a power drive to allow the belt to travel and carry the material driven on the belt.

Advantages of Roller Conveyor Belt Drive

1. Belt drives are simple and economical.

2. They do not require parallel shafts.

3. Belt drives are provided with overload and blockage protection.

4.  Noise and vibration are suppressed. Mechanical life is extended as load fluctuations are absorbed.

5.  No lubrication. They require less maintenance costs.

6.  Belt drives are used with high efficiency (up to 98%, usually 95%).

7. They are very economical when the distance between shafts is large.

Disadvantages of Belt Drives

1. In belt drives, the angular velocity ratio is not always constant or equal to the ratio of pulley diameters due to sliding and stretching.

2. Heat build up occurs. Speed is usually limited to 35 metres per second. Transmission power is limited to 370 kW.

3. Operating temperatures are usually limited to -35 to 85°C.

4. To compensate for wear and stretching of the belt drive, it is necessary to adjust the centre distance or use an idler pulley.

What Is An “O” Belt Conveyor Roller?

The "O" belt drive, compared with the chain drive has the characteristics of high running noise, slow conveying speed, etc., widely used in light and medium load box conveyors.  Click here to learn more. What Is An "O" Belt Conveyor Roller?

What Is A Poly-Vee Drive Roller?

Poly-vee roller Belt is one kind of poly-vee belt, which is mainly used in roller conveyors, which a logistics conveyors. It has the characteristics of high speed, quietness, and environmental protection, and is widely used in express delivery, medicine, e-commerce, and other logistics conveying systems.

The Poly-Vee drive roller is a roller that uses the Poly V drive system. The drive components of this roller are located away from the conveying area, which is important to prevent soiling and keep the environment clean. These belts conform to ISO 9981 and DIN 7867 and have a pitch of 2.24 mm. Unlike standard round belts, the Poly V belts used in this roller have up to 4 ribs, which more than doubles the torque transmission capacity.Click here to find out more: What Is A Poly-Vee Drive Roller?

What Is Belt Driven Roller Conveyor?

Belt driven roller conveyor systems are a series of rollers, supported by a structure, which are driven by a belt.

The rollers of a belt-driven conveyor are an integral part of the conveyor system. These systems consist of a series of rollers that are structurally supported and driven by belts.

There are two main types of belt drive systems: those that use flat-section belts and those that use belt loops. In a flat-section belt system, a single belt is tensioned between the drive pulley and the reversing pulley, running under the drum. The belt transfers motion to the rollers, causing them to move the items or pallets they are conveying. Alternatively, in a belt loop system, each roller is individually connected by a belt to a unique drive shaft located beneath the roller. This design allows for more precise control of each roller's movement. Belt driven roller conveyor systems are ideal for unit handling and can accommodate a variety of unit items or pallets.

Although these conveyors are usually flat, slight inclines are allowed as long as the required adhesion limits between the rollers and the load are maintained. These systems are capable of handling a variety of heavy and light materials, regular or irregular shapes. They also have the advantage of having a sliding action between the belt and the drum in the event of overload, which is advantageous for transporting fragile goods or transporting pressure build-ups between load units. However, it is important to note that this sliding action may not be suitable for all applications.

One of the distinguishing features of belt-driven roller conveyor systems is their quiet operation even at high speeds. This makes them ideal for applications where noise reduction is a priority.

Overall, belt-driven roller conveyor systems provide an efficient and versatile solution for transporting various types of loads. Their design coupled with their quiet operation and ability to handle different materials make them a popular choice in many industries.
