Coal, anthracite, sized

27

The surcharge angle, on the average, will be 5 degrees to 15 degrees less than the angle of repose.

(ex. 27 - 12 = 15)
Determine the density of the material in pounds per cubic foot
(lb/ft3).
Coal, anthracite, sized
55-60
Choose the idler shape.
Select a suitable conveyor belt speed.
Convert the desired tonnage per hour (tph) to be conveyed to the
equivalent in cubic feet per hour (ft3/hr).
(ex. 1000 tph x 2000 / 60 = 33333 ft3/hr)
Convert the desired capacity in cubic feet per hour to the
equivalent capacity at a belt speed of 100 fpm.

(ex. Capacity (eqiuv) = 33333 x (100 / 600 fpm) = 5555 ft3/hr


7. Find the appropriate belt width
8. Selected belt speed may require revision

Idler Spacing
www.kmg.agh.edu.pl

Factors to consider when selecting idler spacing are belt weight, material weight, idler load rating, belt
sag, idler life, belt rating, belt tension, and radius in vertical curves
