SUPPORT , DRIVING , TENSIONS & GUIDING

The excellent dimensional stability of the conveyor belts makes it possible to use simple systems for support, tensioning, driving and guiding. Nevertheless, if belts are to be trouble-free throughout their full working life, it is essential that the arrangements for tensioning driving and guiding are specifically designed for the particular application.

SUPPORTS

DRIVING

Steel sliding plate, steel chevrons or rollers are all suitable forms of support for belts.
D CONVEYOR BELTS
A single drive roller with a flat face and suitable high friction covering will meet the requirements of most applications.

ENSIONING

GUIDING

Tensioning can be achieved by quite simple means as belts undergo very little expansion or contraction during their working life.
D CONVEYOR BELTS
A guiding system is essential for most PTFE belts, Guiding may be by external guide systems or by incorporating a systems in the belt construction, such as metal pins or grommets. External, electrical, or mechanical systems are preferred, since they are suitable for all widths of belts and prolong belt life by preventing edge damage due to incorrect tracking.

OPTIMIZING BELT LIFE

Belt life varies by each application, but a few rules will help you maximize life:
  • Run at low tensions.
  • Use only flat rollers.
  • Ensure each roller is aligned properly.
  • Utilise an automatic guiding systems.
