## Belt Conveyors for Bulk Materials Practical Calculations

Belt conveyors consist of two powered pulleys with a continuous loop of belting material used to convey products Belt conveyors are the most economical powered conveyor and are typically used for conveying products over long distances, at high speeds, or for incline/decline applications This is done with endless procession of hooks, gears, buckets, and a wide rubber belt The belt is then

## Conveyor Belt Wear Life Modelling

the following variables: conveyor duty, belt speed, belt width, cycle time, belt strength and throughput material Of the 5 alternate linear models explored, the 1D throughput based measure, which captures utilisation data unaccounted for in the conventional time base wear rates, proved most descriptive This project confirms that throughput linear models better characterise belt wear rates
