Factors That Influence Belt Conveyor Roller Performance
As the main component part of belt conveyor, the roller undertakes the seventy percent resistance force, so we should pay more attention to factors which influence the performance of belt conveyor roller during the choice, operation and maintenance.
March 21, 2014 (Newswire.com) - As the main component part of belt conveyor, the roller undertakes the seventy percent resistance force when the conveyor transports the materials. Because the utilization rate is larger, the replacement frequency is bigger, so we should pay more attention to factors which influence the performance of belt conveyor roller during the choice, operation and maintenance.
1. Sealing Effect. The more better sealing effect, the more better performance.
As we know, the belt conveyor roller sealing design structure adopts axial non-contact labyrinth seal, with the feature of dustproof and waterproof effect, due to the smaller clearance formed between the inner sealing parts and exterior parts. If the smaller clearance is not sealed better, the dust and water will access to the roller, then the bearing of the roller starts to be corroded little by little, which eventually have a worse influence on the service life of belt conveyor roller, otherwise, it will also take a bad effect on our food processing.
2. Co-axiality of Roller Shaft. The larger Co-axiality consistence, the better operation performance.
The belt conveyor roller shaft is made of cold-drawing axis, because the cold-drawing axis is convenient, work saving and labor saving, without deeply processing the surface roughness and dimensional precision. If the co-axiality degree deviation is much bigger, which will make the rotation of roller inflexible and increase the resistance force.
Alignment of Bearing Block.
The higher alignment, the more flexible of the belt conveyor. The bearing block of belt conveyor roller is stamping parts, which is not processed and welded on the roller surface. When stamping, the bearing block is not round, and the end face cooperated with roller surface is not flat, which will bring about the not-alignment of bearing block. When we producing, the resistance force will be increased and flexibility will also be blocked.
From above three factors mentioned, we should choose the better sealing effect, larger co-axiality of roller shaft and higher alignment of bearing block to guarantee the perfect performance of belt conveyor. Our companyЎЇs conveyors are all specialized for high quality and energy saving machine and various styles for your demands.
