Belt Conveyor

This general class of conveyor has many applications in bulk handling and heavy industries such as mining.  For lighter package and tote handling, this conveyor is generally used where contact slipping is of concern.  Examples of this are incline and decline conveyors and metering belts that tightly control gaps and involve accelerations on the loads.  Although a simpler class compared to roller conveyor, many variations are common : 

Slider Bed Conveyor – a class of belt conveyor that drives a continuous woven flat bed over a flat (usually) metal surface.  Very economical in construction this conveyor is well suited to medium length transport applications without accumulation requirements.

 Belt on Roller Conveyor – in the same class as Slider Bed, this belt conveyor runs on a bed of passive roller that reduce friction and power requirements.  Slightly more costly than Slider Bed, it is usually used to accommodate heavier loads or greater distances with a given horsepower class of motor.

Conveyor Belt Curves – a special shaped belt and tapered drive rollers allow a continuous flat surface around (usually) 90 degree curves.  Typically found in applications where loads of size variations would make roller curves impractical.

 Spiral Belt Curve – a very specialized class of belt curve that forms a continuous helix shape for close quarters inclines or declines  Saves a lot of floor space for elevation changes, but are relatively expensive.
