Sidewall belt conveyor is continuous transporting equipment for loose bulk materials such as coke, coal, limestone, sand and gravel. It adopts high quality conveyor belt with corrugated sidewall and horizontal baffle. Sidewall belts are used to convey material up inclines. The sidewall increases the carrying capacity of the belt and prevents product from falling off the edges of the belt. Hot vulcanization provides 5 times greater adhesion between the belt and sidewall, eliminating the need for bolting the sidewall to the base belt. Greater adhesion also prevents the sidewall from lifting and separating from the base belt, extending the belt life.
Working Principle and Application
The horizontal loading section leads a deflection wheel bends the belt into the feeding of the bulk material takes place on a mostly horizontal feed path, where the side wall belt is supported by loading impact idlers. The feeding of the conveyed material can be achieved by direct feeding from a hopper, over a chute, a feeding belt or a feeding pulley. The selection of the optimum feeding station depends on the properties of the bulk material and the belt speed of the vertical conveyor. The upward and downward strands are encased from the bottom to the top. Substructures or support rollers are not necessary in this section.
The vertical section leads over a deflection curve into the horizontal discharge section. The deflection curve is made up of a number of high specification pulleys. These pulleys experience the vectored load of deflecting the belt tension from vertical to horizontal.
At the drive pulley, the bulk material is discharged and the belt is returned to the back going strand. Depending on the bulk material properties, the drive pulley is followed by a beater wheel for belt cleaning in the return side. The beater is self-driven. Material that fails from the belt goes into the main delivery chute. Lateral deflection wheels turn the belt from the horizontal back to the vertical.
Sidewall belt conveyor is widely applied in coal and wood-chip fired power stations,underground mining (coal and ore),steel industry,ship loading and unloading,foundry plants,silo feeding industry,waste recycling, soil purification and water treatment,etc.
Advantages and Features
1.No spillage with steep angle conveying,long lifespan
2.No transfer points-the belt is capable of turning at any angle right from feed hopper to discharge point
3.Maximum utilization of space – it is able to convey material at angles up to 90 degree
4.Low power requirement – requiring low power to move loaded belts
5.Quiet smooth running – as belt runs on rotating idlers, low resistance ensures quieter operations
