Use of Copter saves 70% of erection cost during Installation of conveyors!
FEECO INTERNATIONAL, INC., the designer, the manufacturer and Project Managers of a multi-million dollar
material handling system at Blytheville, Arkansas and their contractors were faced with the fact that ap-
proximately 2200 feet of conveyor had to be installed over the swampy area at the job-site between the
Mississippi River and the main plant.
Because of the special conditions, an intensive study was made of the time and installation costs involved, both
important factors on a project of this magnitude. Vital to being willing to explore more sophisticated methods of
equipment erection, the idea was triggered to use a helicopter for the erection of conveyors in the areas under
question. The erection program was planned, coordinated and scheduled to have 2200 feet of conveyor sec-
tions completely assembled with trusses, idlers and material protection covers in 60 foot lengths, and ap-
proximately 3300 pounds each.
The complete installation of the 2200 foot conveying system was accomplished in less than four hours with an
average lift duration of between 6 and 8 minutes. The accuracy of placing the 60 foot, 3300 lb. sections was
phenominal and was accomplished within one inch of the desired locations.
4-6
Conveyors
Total manpower for this part of the material handling systems erection included: the helicopter pilot with two
radio technicians, one at ground level and one at the point of installation; two men at the ground level for con-
necting the lifting cables to the conveying system sections; three men at the receiving end along the erection
area and one supervisor.
From a labor viewpoint it is estimated that at least double the manpower would have had to be employed and in
addition cranes, crawlers and other mobile equipment would have had to be engaged. Overall, an estimated
70% of normal cost was saved by the use of the airlift method described above.
The above erected conveying system is only part of a major material handling system including approximately
5000 feet of conveyors, a 30,000 ton capacity storage building, a screening tower completely equipped with
screening systems, weighing units, delumpers and reclaim equipment, a loading shelter with load out sytems to
trucks and railroad cars and conveying systems for barge loading at the Mississippi River loading docks.

HORIZONTAL DISTANCE
For dimensions greater than the limits of the chart, divide the given dimensions by a figure to bring
length within the range of the chart. Multiply the result by the same figure to restore the
proportions. Example: 160 ft. horizontal distance, 52 ft. lift. Dividing by 2 == 80 ft. and 26 ft.
Intersection of vertical line from 80 ft. horizontal distance and horizontal line from 26 ft. lift == length
on incline of 84 ft. at 18 line. Acutal incline conveyor length then is 84 x 2 or 168 ft.

IDLERS
SPACING OF IDLERS
(GENERAL CONFORMITY OF ALL CEMA IDLER MANUFACTURERS)
Normal Spacing--(Troughing and Return Idlers)
See Table below, for recommendations.
Loading Point--(Impact Idlers)--Normally, one
half the troughing idler spacing is recommended.
For fine materials, place the idlers as close
together as possible.
Convex or Concave Curves consult engineering
department for arrangement and spacing.
Belt Training Idlers--FEECO recommends the
use of one training return idler approximately
12 to 15 belt widths before the tailor take-
up pulley. Also place training idlers at
approximately 100 foot intervals on the
troughing and return runs.
Side Guide Idlers--Use only to insure against
serious belt damage that may be caused by the
belt running against the conveyor support
structure. Place near the possible obstruc-
tion. They are not a corrective device.

Horsepower Caluculation
With the information given in Tables 1 to 5 inclusive, the
total horsepower required can be detennined.
Example: Assume a 24" belt conveyor with 300 horizontal
centers, a 40 foot rise and a belt speed of 400 feet per minute.
Conveyor to handle 195 tons of coal per hour. Anti-friction
idlers and terminal bearings to be used throughout.
Table No. 1 shows that we will require 1.0 H.P. for each 100
feet per minute belt speed to drive empty conveyor, or a total
of 4.0 H.P. for a conveyor traveling 400 F.P.M.
Table No.2 we find that approximately 2.7 H.P. will be re-
quired to convey 195 tons over a horizontal distance of 300
reet.
Table No. 4 shows that approximately 8 HP. is required to
elevate 195 T.P.H. of material 40 feet.
Table No.3 gives the additional H.P. required to drive tripper,
but as no tripper would be required on the conveyor, we are
considering this figure is omitted.
By adding the horsepowers determined from Tables I, 2 and 4
we get an effeotive H.P. of 14.7.
Table No.5 gives the additional horsepower required for the
power less in various types of drives. Assume the conveyor
we have under consideration is driven by a helical gear reducer
and roller chain drive. We would then have to add 100/0 of
the effective HP. to take care of the power loss, or 1.5 HP.
This would give us a motor H.P. of 16.2 in which case we
would recommend a 20 H.P. motor.
Where conveyor is to be started under load, a high starting
toraue motor should be used.

STEEP INCLINE
CONCEPT
FEECO International's steep incline conveyor
permits the transport of bulk material at inclines
ranging from 18
0
to 90
0
. Material applications
include coal fines, fertilizer, wood chips,
chemicals, assembly parts, scrap material and
many other bulk materials. The advantages of
this unique design include . ..
REDUCED MATERIAL DEGRADATION
Through "t.: ' and "S" shape designs. transfer points
are eliminated allowing smooth continuous conveying.
REDUCED SPILLAGE
Corrugated sidewalls which contains the material
reduces spillage along conveyor path and loading
pOints.
LESS SPACE REQUIREMENTS
Steeper geometric options of the steep incline
conveyor reduces the length requirements compared
to conventional conveyors which eliminates wasted
space.
LONGER BELT LIFE
Belt abrasion is curtailed by restricted movement of
material.
CUSTOM DESIGN
FEECO's steep incline conveyors are specifically
designed according to customers requirements, using
top quality components.
FEECO International , Inc. has beeil designing,
engineering and manufacturing material handling
equipment for over 35 years. Our steep incline
conveyor has been appl ied to solve handl ing
problems for many different industries. Whether it
is a single piece of equipment or a complete
turnkey operation, FEECO has the skills and
experience to meet your needs. Let us put our
experience to work for you. For an early exchange
of ideas on your next project call us at

BELTING DESIGN
The steep incline conveyor uses a flexible
corrugated sidewall belting which contains
the material and permits loose material
such as fertilizer, coal fines, chemicals,
assembly parts, scrap materials, grain,
sludge, and other bulk materials to be
conveyed without spilling. A choice of
cleated belting is available which prevents
fall back of the material when conveying at
steep inclined angles up to 90
0
.
MATERIAL TRANSFER
DRIVE ASSEMBLY
Head and tail sections come fully
assembled with shop mounted pulleys and
complete drive systems. The picture at the
right illustrates a shaft mounted reducer
with V-belt drive. Other drive options
available are direct coupled and chain drive.
Back stops can either be mounted internally
to the reducer or externally on the conveyor
head shaft. The steep incline conveyor is
ideally suited as a replacement for drag
chain or bucket elevators. This means less
noise and maintenance and often at a lower
initial cost.
4 - 47
Conveyors
Loading points remain clean with custom
designed inlet hoppers which maximize
loading capacity for straight incline,
horizontal, 'T', and "8" shape
configurations. Turning wheel assemblies
are incorporated to direct belting up the
desired incline. Fully enclosed systems are
available to protect material and reduce
dust. Due to this unique all-in-one design,
transfer points are eliminated preventing
product degradation and spillage and allows
for smooth continuous conveying of the
material.

Conveyor screws can be manufactured in the types illustrated below. They may be either right or left hand and
usually can be furnished in either helicoid or buttweld sectional flight construction. They are normally manufac-
tured from carbon steel; however. conveyors made of special materials such as stainless steel, and abrasion
resistant materials can be furnished. Hot-dip galvanizing or other coatings are also available.
Special types of conveyor screws may be used where unusual operating conditions are encountered. Other
types offer a convenient means for processing the materials being conveyed.
Sectional flight conveyor screw
Helicoid flight conveyor screw
Short pitch conveyor screw
Short pitch conveyor screws are of regular construc-
tion except that the pitch of the flight is less than
standard. They are used extensively as feeder
screws and to retard the flushing of materials of a
fluid nature.

Flanged trough
ANGLE FLANGED TROUGH
This trough is identical in construction to the flanged
trough, except that top flanges are securely welded
structural steel angles to the trough.
Flared trough
FLANGED TROUGH
By forming the top flanges with the trough sides from
a single steel sheet, adequate strength and rigidity is
obtained. Steel connecting flanges securely weldeci
at each end in special welding fixtures assures true
ends and proper alignment of conveyor trough.
Angle flanged trough
FLARED TROUGH
This trough also has formed top flanges except that
the trough sides are flared outward to provide a
