The Future Developing Trend of The Belt Conveyor
The conveyor is the equipment transporting materials in a certain line, also known as continuous conveyor. The conveyor includes belt conveyor, pipe conveyor. The belt conveyors
could carry on the horizontal, inclined and vertical transporting. And the transmission lines are generally fixed. The belt conveyors development trends in the future are as follows:
The large-scale development is one of the trends. Large-scale means large transport capacity, large single machine length and large transport tilt and other aspects. The length of the hydraulic conveyor has reached 440 km or more. The stand-alone length of belt conveyor reaches nearly 15 km. Many countries are exploring the belt conveyors with features of long-distance, large transport capacity to reach continuous delivery of materials.
The expansion of belt conveyor application is another trend. The belt conveyors which could work in the environment of high temperature, low temperature conditions, corrosive, radioactive, flammable substances will be developed. Also the belt conveyor can transport hot, explosive, easy to group, sticky materials.
The structure of the conveyor will meet the material handling system with automation control on the requirements of a single machine. For example, the post office could use the automatic car conveyor sorting parcels.
Reducing energy consumption to save energy has become an important field of transportation technology research.
The environmental protection is the obvious trend. We should reduce the dust, noise and emissions of waste gas when operating conveyors.
