As a common conveying equipment, belt conveyors are often used in the conveying of bulk materials in various coal mines, soybean meal, port terminals, cement, and chemical industries. During the conveying process, the belt conveyor will encounter various resistances, including the extrusion resistance of the material, the bending resistance of the material, the repeated bending resistance of the conveyor belt, the compression resistance of the conveyor belt on the roller, and the movement resistance of the roller. Therefore, how to reduce the resistance of the belt conveyor in actual application is very important.

The following measures can reduce the resistance of the belt conveyor:

1. Motor bearing lubrication: due to the friction of the belt conveyor, some resistance will inevitably occur when conveying materials, especially when the length of the conveying time causes the mechanical lubrication to be insufficient, it is necessary to carry out various mechanical parts to refuel the motor Carry out lubrication, such as lubrication of bearings and various accessories.

2. Conveyor belt connection method: The belt joint is replaced by a vulcanized joint (both cold and hot), which is more expensive but has a long service life (suitable for fixed belt conveyors).

3. Roller running resistance: In the belt conveyor, the roller rotation resistance of the conveyor accessories and the forward resistance of the conveyor belt account for 50% of the main resistance of the entire conveying equipment.

4. Conveyor belt deviation: Conveyor belt is the main carrier of the belt conveyor to transport materials. When conveying materials, the mechanical deviation of the conveyor belt will also bring different resistance to the belt conveyor. In order to reduce the running resistance of the belt conveyor as much as possible, it is also very important to adjust the deviation of the belt in time and reduce the deviation of the belt.

5. Cleaning the conveyor belt: through the conveyor belt cleaner, timely cleaning of the materials adhering to the conveyor belt can also reduce the resistance of the conveyor belt when it is running.
