Analysis of Speed and Belt Deviation of the Conveyor Belt
Deviated belt will cause great harm, which will not only reduce its service life, but also will lead to the machine damage and personal casualty. This paper analyzes the reasons for belt deviation and establishes the mechanical model of a conveyor belt. The theoretical analysis and numerical simulation are adopted in this article to analyze and research the speed when the belt is deviated, obtain the relation between the transversal movement speed of belt and front offset angle of a idler, idler rotation speed and belt speed, and provide the deviation correction and prevention of belt conveyor with theoretical guidance.
