Belt conveyor frame types and design considerations

What is the conveyor frame?

The Belt conveyor frame is a metal structure(usually using normal and stainless steel conveyor frame) used to support idlers, pulley and belt tension. The designed structure and production material of the frame determine the quality of the frame. The actual use of the belt conveyor frames involve various forms of steel structure. For example, the cantilever stacker reclaimer conveying equipment frame, the conveyor frame of the non parallel conveying process, and the frame of the large angle belt conveyor are different.

Types of belt conveyor frame

Types of belt conveyor frame

Classified by the composition:: the belt conveyor frame parts can be divided into belt conveyor head frame, belt conveyor tail frame and conveyor middle frame; all the three frames are composed a complete conveyor frame system. The head frame can be divided into ordinary head frame, snub head frame and double pulleys drive head frame. The ordinary head is mainly used for small belt conveyor, the snub head frame increases the support for the snub pulley, and the double pulley head frame is used for large conveyor. The intermediate frame is divided into standard and non-standard ones, with standard length of 6000 mm and non-standard length of 3000-6000 mm.

Classified by structural shape: There four belt conveyor frame types including beam frame, conveyor truss frame, tripod, conveyor supporting legs. Generally, the walking gallery (Walkway) and rain proof dust cover of belt conveyor are installed on the truss. When the conveyor is set up at a high altitude, the supporting legs are needed. The supporting leg can be a simple structure composed of section steel and steel pipe, or a tower type with complex structure. Tripod is especially suitable for large belt conveyor because of its stable stress.

Classification by grounding: it is divided into landing type belt conveyor frame and hanging type conveyor frame. The landing type frame can be divided into fixed type and mobile conveyor frame. The landing type fixed frame structure has a long stable service life, which is commonly used in the underground mine transportation roadway transportation system. For the conveyor equipment required to move frequently, we generally use removable mobile frame and hanging frame. The mobile frame is mainly composed of H-shaped intermediate bracket and longitudinal steel pipes on both sides. The frame and frame, frame and idlers do not need to be connected by bolts, but are located by pins.

What factors should be referred to in the belt conveyor frame design process?

belt conveyor frame design process

As a kind of safe and efficient transportation equipment with low investment, belt conveyor is widely used in many industries. However, with the large-scale and complex structure of the belt conveyor, many factors need to be considered in the design of the belt conveyor. In sometimes we need to design alignment belt conveyor frame and trough conveyor frame for higher required level.

The processing of belt conveyor frame design needs to refer to topography, climate, safety, environmental protection, material characteristics, service life, mobile or fixed, transportation mode, impact, auxiliary equipment and other factors. For example, the conveyor frame of steel plants, mines, power plants and the conveyor bracket of refineries in chemical plants seem like the same, but there are great differences in the actual design.

What are the materials for making the belt conveyor frame?

Frame manufacturing mainly uses steel welding. Our belt conveyor frame is mainly made of carbon steel, aluminum profile, stainless steel, negative steel, channel steel, I-beam, sheet metal, H-beam, etc. We will select appropriate materials for belt conveyor frame manufacturing based on customers’ requirements combined with the actual application. We supply belt conveyor frames for sale.
