Generally according to the requirement of the material handling system, material handling site of the premise, and the fruit of the related process and material properties such as to determine the main parameters.
(1) transmission capacity: conveyor transmission capacity refers to the amount of material per unit time delivery. When conveying material, the quality of the conveying material per hour or volume calculation; When conveying into items, the number of delivery per hour.
(2) the conveyor speed: conveying speed can be progressive transmission capacity. In a conveyor belt for traction and transmission length is larger, conveying speed increasing. But high-speed belt conveyor needs to pay attention to the vibration, noise and start, brake and other topics. For conveyor chain as traction pieces, conveying velocity shoulds not be too big, in order to prevent the increasing power load. At the same time process control of belt conveyor, conveying speed should be determined according to the requirements of production process.
(3) the component size: the component dimensions including conveyor belt conveyor width, strip width, bucket capacity, pipe diameter and the container size, etc. These artifacts size directly affect the transmission capacity of conveyor.
(4) The length and Angle of transport: transmission line length and Angle size directly affect the total resistance of conveyor and the power required.
