It is good practice, for chain driven live roller conveyors to have a minimum of three rollers under the product at all times. To determine roller spacing, take the length of the shortest product, divide by 3 and choose the standard roller spacing required, either 4-1/2" or 6" centers. Example: The closest standard roller spacing is 6"centers.
Feb 21, 2005· hi. I am trying to buil a spreadsheet for calculation the required HP of roller conveyors. The setup of the conveyor is te following: Motor connected to a gearbox. Output sprocket linked to a roller sprocket. All rollers linked toghether. This conveyor should move a pallet-load of X
May 13, 2015· I want to select a motor for a conveyor or machine,for Load torque calculation, i need the weight of the parts which has to move by motor. Now the problem is that ,can i simply take full weight of all parts which has to move or carry? or is there is any specific method to take weight of all parts like chain, shaft, belts ? for example like: if there is shaft with pulleys on two pillow blocks

Selecting the Optimal Conveyor Drive This stone suggests several mechanical, electrical, and software ideas that will enable conveyor designers to optimize conveyor reliability and "maintainability" without the need for large investments in equipment and design time. It introduces the concept of internally powered conveyor belt drives and offers generally applicable belt drive design software.
The final example for Precision Conveyor is also driving multiple conveyors with one motor but in this application, they are be driven end to end versus side by side. This is called slave driven conveyors. In a slave driven application, you get the cost benefit of one motor to drive multiple conveyors.
The conveyor rollers are completely corrosion-proof if polymer or stainless steel tubes are used. Properties Platform 1500 is specifically designed for use in hygienic areas and in areas at risk of corrosion. All of the bearing housings are sealed internally so that liquids or other substances cannot penetrate the rollers. The conveyor rollers
232 renoldjeffrey • advancing chain technology 29 Roller Drive Chain Selection Technical Information Step 5: Select the Number of Teeth on the small sprocket. The minimum number of teeth are found in the horsepower tables on pages 6-19. To determine, first calculate the Horsepower Table Rating (HP Table) from the following
Belt Conveyor Tracking: V-Guided vs. Crowned Roller . One of the largest maintenance issues associated with belt conveyors is belt tracking. Belt tracking is the adjustment method used to keep the belt running straight and true on the end rollers and the belt conveyor frame.
Eng. Guide Index The KWS Dragon-Flite conveyor is an efficient, high performance alternative to conventional means of material handling. Because the material is moved En-Masse, horsepower requirements can be as much as half of that of alternative means of conveyance. The Horsepower (HP) requirements of a Dragon-Flite conveyor can be
