Energy saving conveyor belts

A conveyor belt is deformed when running over the idlers. This internal friction or asymmetrical tension between idler and conveyor belt -consumes energy. Special rubber compounds and belt designs for instance an additional transverse reinforcement reduce

Screw Conveyor Horsepower Engineering Guide

Horsepower is defined as the power required to safely and feasibly convey a bulk material a fixed distance in a screw conveyor. The horsepower required to drive a screw conveyor is called Total Shaft Horsepower, or TSHP. TSHP is a function of the characteristics of the bulk material being conveyed and the friction inherent in the screw conveyor.
