Design Parameters

Belt conveyors are required to meet certain criteria for its operation, portions of the criteria ( functional requirements ) are governed by typical mathematical operations which quantify the behavior of the equipment and assist in the determination of belt width, drive power determination and load-bearing capabilities of the structural elements of the belt conveyor. This section covers various configurations of these design parameters used on this site.
