Different types of conveyors can be flexible applied in the industry, which improved the conveyor efficiency. In the industry, we will according to the characteristics of the material and the environment factors to design conveyor for different purpose. At present , common belt conveyor types include belt conveyor, roller conveyor, telescopic belt conveyor , screw conveyor, chain conveyor, etc.

Interested in learn more information for different types of the conveyors? Through the following, you will learn about different belt conveyor types, uses and other information.

What is the conveyor?

Conveyor is a Continuous conveying machine ,which conveyor material from one end to the other. The conveyor composed of the conveyor belt , idler tensioning device, etc. The conveyor can turn the conveying direction flexibly, that can effectively save labor and improve the work efficiency .

It is widely used in logistics, warehouse transportation, assembly line, coal transportation, machinery and other industries.

Different types of the conveyor

Belt conveyor

Belt conveyor is one of the conveyors types. It is a machine that continuous conveying the material. The belt conveyor can conveying material from one end to other, which can receive the material from one point or more point, and unload the material to multiple areas.

The length of the running route can reach more than 10km. And the conveying speed is mainly adjusted by variable speed drive.

Belt conveyor adopt sectional assembly that benefit the site installation and adjustment. The belt conveyor not only conveying broken bulk material, but also conveying finished good. There is almost no relative movement between materials and conveyors, and the power consumption is relatively low .

 The belt conveyor not only makes the running resistance small, but also reduces the wear of goods, which effectively improves the productivity.

Relevant parameters of belt conveyor are as follows.

Roller  conveyor

 Roller conveyor composed of the conveying roller, frame, support, driving device, etc. the roller conveyor conveying the material with flat bottom ,such as Luggage, tray etc. It is easy to connect and filter between roller conveyor lines and can bear large impact load. The roller conveyor can combined with other conveyor to form a conveyor system .

Roller conveyor can be divided into power roller line and unpowered roller line, and the customer can choose the appropriate conveyor according to their needs. Of course, we can design the conveyor according the customer requirements and complete various process requirements.

The following is the standardized parameters of the roller conveyor .

Telescopic belt conveyor

Telescopic belt conveyor is a conveyor whose body is equipped with a storage belt device, which can adjust its length according to the change of working position.

Take 6m as the length of the foundation section of the telescopic machine. According the customer requirements ,We can design two, three, four telescopic belt conveyor with different lengths.

The telescopic machine can be operated in the form of body button and wireless remote control. It can combined with other conveying equipment to form automatic production.

The use of Telescopic belt conveyor can shorten the distance of manual round trip handling of material and the time of loading and unloading. In addition, that can reduce labor costs and improve work efficiency.

Screw conveyor

The screw conveyor uses the motor to drive the spiral blade to rotate ,which move the materials to realize the conveying of the screw conveyor.

According  the characteristics of the material ,the screw conveyor can be divided into shaft screw conveyor and shaftless screw conveyor. The shaft screw conveyor is suitable for conveying dry bulk materials without viscosity, such as grain, cement, etc.          The shaftless screw conveyor is suitable for conveying viscous materials, such as sludge.

Compared with other conveyors, screw conveyor has the advantages of simple structure, small cross-section size, good sealing performance, multi-point reclaiming or unloading in the middle and so on. And It is mainly suitable for conveying powdery and granular materials, not for materials that are easy to deteriorate and agglomerate.

Chain conveyor

The chain conveyor has the characteristics of flat and smooth conveying surface and low friction. It can transport goods along the horizontal or certain inclination angle, and can carry large loads, such as generator industry, electric vehicle industry, etc.

Chain conveyor have different texture of material, such as ordinary carbon steel, stainless steel, thermoplastic chain , etc.. You can choose appropriate texture according to the characteristics of the material . It has a wide range of applications. Except for materials with high viscosity, solid bulk materials can be transported.

How to choose the conveyors types?

Selecting the appropriate conveyor type can be considered from the following aspects.

Understand the characteristics of conveying materials. Based on this factor, we can choose from the available conveyors types.

The operating environment is very important. The use of conveyor can bring great benefits to production, but the environment will also affect many operations.

Consider how to load and unload parts. Systems equipped with tools, pallets or carriers can accommodate this situation.

The speed required to transport materials.

There are many kinds of conveyors. I hope it can help you understand more kinds of conveyors.
