Continuous mechanical handling equipment -- Belt conveyors with carrying idlers -- Calculation of operating power and tensile forces
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2013. Therefore this version remains current.
Specifies methods for the calculation of the operating power requirements on the driving pulley of a belt conveyor, and of the tensile forces exerted on the belt. Applies to belt conveyors with carrying idlers. Lays down the definitions, symbols and units etc. and defines the resistances to motion of belt conveyor, the driving force and power requirements and the capacity and cross-section of a conveyor with a smooth patternless belt.
