Belt conveyors range in length from a few feet to several miles. They carry everything from small packages to thousands of tons of bulk material per hour. A belt conveyor can unload a barge load of coal and deliver predetermined amounts to several, one hundred feet high silos, a thousand yards away in minutes. Another belt conveyor will precisely meter variable amounts of the coal to a boiler.
The lesson notes show typical belt conveyor applications and explain how to calculate trough belt conveyor power requirements and select components on-line. A belt conveyor system layout drawing for boilers is also included.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
