Abstract

In the food industry, tape conveyors are used in grain silos for cereal products
transport. Roller conveyors with strips are used for continuous transport of materials. Belt conveyors are used for horizontal or sloping direction towards the horizontal direction with an angle of 5-25°, both of the tasks and the tasks discharged into pieces. In most cases the path which works the transport can be combined, being composed of horizontal areas, sloping areas, joined with curved areas.
Having in view the resistance of bands, the maximum length of the conveyor belt was limited at 250-300 m. If the task needs to be transported on greater distances, it is important to use a transport system consisting of multiple conveyors. These conveyors are powered in series. In the case of inclined conveyors, the rake angle of the strip depending on the properties of tasks, on the friction angle of the material transported by tape, and also on the value of the speed and power of the load.
