Unformatted text preview: CONVEYOR BELT HAND BOOK JBS Kumar Page 1 Foreword This CONVEYOR HANDBOOK is provided by to allow designers to select the correct specification belting for any particular installation. This is just a general guideline and final decisions are to be taken by the user based on actual working conditions. Properties of fabrics used in Polyester Nylon multi-ply belting constructions are given in detail, while the general properties and application areas of special multi-ply constructions, solid woven, Aramid and steel belting are also shown. The use of various natural and synthetic rubbers with these reinforcements for handling different service conditions is set out for the designer. Design considerations affecting power demands, belt curves, transitions etc., are provided. Whilst users are vitally interested in these design considerations for conveyors, there is a special section on fault diagnosis to enable users to identify causes of troubles which may occur and correct them before belt damage either occurs or becomes extended. The layout of this manual and easy approach to belt design will be readily followed by belt design engineers. JBS Kumar Page 2 Index 1.
