Requirements for determination of the wear resistance characteristics of conveyor belts

With reference to the use of international standards with a rotating device to determine the wear resistance of the conveyor belt rubber, the latest provisions of the standard so that the specimen in a certain level of abrasive cloth friction and wear, the determination of the volume of the conveyor belt wear, to the corrected abrasive cloth as the benchmark, the test results with respect to a certain standard glue volume wear or wear index expressed, under the specified contact pressure and a given area, lateral movement, wear is generated at one end of the cylindrical specimen, the measurement of mass loss value to calculate the volume of wear, the wear resistance of the material , expressed in terms of wear or wear index, the ratio of the wear of a standard nylon rubber belt to the wear of the test glue, expressed as a percentage.

Frequently Asked Question

The chain conveyor is mainly composed of the head transmission device, the casing, the traction chain, the idler device, the tail and the tensioning device, and the alarm device. The drive of the chain conveyor is completed by the transmission device. The motor starts and transmits the power to the main shaft equipped with the sprocket through the reducer. Driven by the sprocket, the traction chain moves, and the material is conveyed along with it and discharged from the discharge port.

According to the different bearing surfaces installed on the chain, it can be divided into: chain type/chain plate type/chain mesh type/slat type/chain bucket type/tray type/trolley type. Such as the composition of various functions of the production line.

A chain conveyor is a material handling system that consists of one or more chains of metal links that move along a fixed path or track. The chain conveyor transports bulk materials or unit loads from one place to another by dragging, pushing, or carrying them on the chain. The chain is driven by a motor, which provides the motion to move the chain and the material on it.

Chain conveyors have several advantages over other types of conveyors, such as: They can handle a wide range of materials, from fine powders to large lumps, with different shapes, sizes, weights, and temperatures. They can operate at low speeds and high capacities, with high torque and low power consumption. They can adapt to various terrain and layout configurations, with horizontal, inclined, declined, or curved sections. They can be equipped with various attachments and devices, such as buckets, slats, aprons, rollers, etc., to perform different functions and improve performance.

A chain conveyor system consists of several components, such as: The chain, which is the metal link that carries the load and transmits the motion. The chain can be made of various materials, such as steel, stainless steel, plastic, etc., depending on the application and environment. The chain can also have different types of links, such as hollow pin links, side bow links, flanged roller links, etc., depending on the function and flexibility required. The sprockets, which are the toothed wheels that engage with the chain and drive it. The sprockets can be classified into drive sprockets (which provide the power to move the chain), tail sprockets (which change the direction of the chain), bend sprockets (which guide the chain around curves), tension sprockets (which adjust the tension and length of the chain), etc. The track or bed, which is the device that supports the chain along its path. The track or bed can be made of steel, wood, plastic, etc., depending on the load and environment. The track or bed can also include rails, guides, wear strips, etc., for safety and maintenance purposes.
