Starting and Acceleration & Deceleration and Stopping of Belt Conveyor

2016-09-17

1. The starting and acceleration of belt conveyor should meet the following requirements:
1) If the conveyor length is more than 200m, the average starting acceleration should be less than 0.3m/s2.
2) The acceleration selection of inclined belt conveyor should not make slipping between the material and belt.
3) If the length of horizontal belt conveyor is more than 500m, or downward belt conveyor is more than 200m, the average starting acceleration should be less than 0.2m/s2.
4) The starting acceleration of long-distance belt conveyor, which has large angle variation and complex layout, should be less than 0.1m/s2. The time of starting and acceleration should not more than the maximum allowable time specified by drive motor or soft starter.
2. The deceleration and stopping of belt conveyor should meet the following requirements:
1) The average deceleration of belt conveyor should be less than 0.3m/s2.
2) The average deceleration of large size and medium-and-long distance belt conveyor should be less than 0.2m/s2.
3) The average deceleration of large size and long-distance belt conveyor, which has large angle variation and complex layout, should be less than 0.1m/s2.
