Energy saving Belt Conveyor

How to make Conveyor energy efficient

The Belt Conveyor is a machine, which can continuously transport material. The transmission principle of friction drives the material through the roller and the tape. The belt conveyors are widely used in metallurgy, coal, hydropower, building material, chemical industries, and various other sectors.
The Belt Conveyors as we know are very convenient, a friendly machine easily operated with the least exertion making transportation of bulk material easier and packed material convenient. The conveyor is a continuous traction transport by the conveyor belt, which works in two ways, as a carrying device that can transport ore, coal, and other bulk materials and also packaged into items. Because of its transport capacity and small transport resistance, low maintenance, stable operation, minimum damage I any, and particularly low consumption of power is making the Belt Conveyor a very popular machine among various sectors. Neo Conveyors are indulged in the same.

Select energy efficient motor

There is probably not as much efficiency loss as you think in running conveyor motors. Conveyors may be equipped with NEMA Design C (high starting torque) motors or NEMA Design B motors that were intentionally oversized as they were selected based upon starting torque and not normal operation criteria. High locked rotor or start-up torque is required to start a fully-loaded conveyor from a stopped condition. Outdoor conveyors might also be iced up. If inadequate starting torque is not available, the motor(s) will stall and trip the overcurrent breakers. The power required under normal operation to transport materials is a function of conveyor loading, Conveyor speed, lift (elevation gain), and friction losses in the conveyor rollers.

Ribbon Blender and mixers for Bulk materials

Ribbon Blender and Mixer manufacturers

A Ribbon Blender or mixers are gaining popularity, due to its versatile use in various industries. It has a very wiA Ribbon Blender or mixers, are gaining popularity, due to its versatile use in various industries.

It has a very wide and varied range. It is a machine, with a ribbon blender agitator consisting of the inner and outer helical ribbons, which is supported by spokes welded to a steel shaft.

When, we talk about the powder and bulk solids, the name strikes, is the ‘Ribbon Blender’, extensively used for blending, granules, flakes, pellets, drink mixes, cosmetic powders, fertilizers, chemical additives, spices, ceramic powders, etc.

Ribbon Blenders to choose from depends on the type of product you want to blend or mix, whether they are similar in shape and size, and the density they possess, etc.

Ribbon blenders are available in from half cu ft. to over 1000 cu ft. 1-cu-ft batch usually takes just two to three minutes to complete a cycle, whereas the time for an 18-cu-ft would be 8 to 10 minutes and so on. At 100 cu ft, a 20- to 25-minute blend time is quite typical.

The ribbon blender can also “coat” solid particles with a minor component that is either a very fine powder or a liquid. In fact, its use extends to general-purpose slurry or paste mixing, preparing solid-liquid suspensions, as well as vacuum drying.

Examples of wet applications include cake batter, guacamole, soups, sauces, pet food, pharmaceutical granulations, joint compounds, and plaster slurries.

How to Select Ribbon Blenders

Before we go ahead, there are certain points to be kept in mind to achieve your target.
• The working of the ribbon blenders: Must understand the working of mixer or ribbon blender. Good design and expert fabrication. The U-shaped trough allowing easy mixing of the free-flowing raw material with a horizontal agitator consisting of precisely pitched inner and outer helical ribbons, which moves the materials in a balanced axial and radial flow pattern.

High-quality ribbon blenders feature tightly controlled clearances between the trough surfaces and the agitator tip.
Perfect design ensures proper and fast repeatable mixing, cleanliness, less maintenance cost, increase the life of the mixer.

• Requirement of the type of Ribbon Blender, Standard or. Heavy: Firstly, judge your product and its type, the product’s actual bulk density. Consider the maximum and minimum batch quantities that a particular model can accommodate.

The perfect mixing in a ribbon blender requires a certain amount of product – at least 30-40% of the rated volumetric capacity. In the case of small volumes, the blender may fail to generate adequate contact between the agitator and the product.

The size of the blender depends on the batch volume. Usually, most of the blenders can handle bulk densities of about 35 lb/cu ft.

• Belt Drive or Direct Drive: Earlier, Ribbon Blenders used a belt drive for power transmission between the motor and gear reducer, in which flexible belts and a set of pulleys, were used to produce the desired speed and torque ranges.

Nowadays, the Ribbon blenders are directly driven by a gear motor over a belt or chain-driven designs, as they require less maintenance and perform better. The electronic inverters give an added advantage to the Gearmotors to work extremely well, providing variable speed, overload protection, and adjustable starting torques (soft start).

Issues like belt slippage and stretching, excessive overhung load, and noise caused by chain drives are all eliminated in a direct drive ribbon blender. More advanced ribbon blenders utilize a Gearmotor that is essentially a one-piece motor reducer.

Wherein, the motor’s low-inertia rotor is specifically matched to the characteristics of the gear unit, resulting in a high dynamic capability essential for mixing operations.

• Loading of the Raw Materials: The work of Blender starts with the loading process. Either the automatic feeding system should be installed or the ingredients (dry) should be placed on the center or split equally into both sides of the blender.

This helps the operator to completely close the blender covers and all inlet ports before mixing starts. This reduces the migration of dust or any loose objects from falling inside. In addition to the safety limit, switches must be added to it to disable the motor, if the blender cover is left open.

In the case of ingredients (liquids), they are added while the ribbon agitator is running. To control the feeding a metering pump may be used along with the atomizing nozzles on a spray bar.

To avoid flooding testing is recommended to determine the rate of liquid addition as well as agitator speed, also multiple nozzles may be used, on both left and right sides to spray liquid to avoid lumps of material.

• Right type of Discharge Valve: Generally, the product is discharged through an outlet located at the center of the trough bottom, in a ribbon blender. Just for safety measures, discharge valve assembly must provide a proper seal to prevent material leakage and safety.

Powder material the Dust-tight knife gate valves are suitable, but fr liquids the Liquid-tight ball valves are appropriate and For sensitive products ‘ the Spherical valve or flush plug valve’ is ideal with minimal “dead spots” in the trough where the product can collect.

• Introduction of controls to avoid mishaps: The ribbon blender is comparatively a simple operated machine that does not require elaborate controls beyond start, stop and speed adjustment. , but keeping in certain future needs, it is useful to buy the blender with a pre-wired control panel.

Main power disconnect with lockout/tag, an energy-isolating device that can be locked out and has a prominent warning tag to protect employees from unexpected start-up or release of energy during service and maintenance.

Bulk Materials Handlings through Belt Conveyor

Belt conveyor systems

The special technique of assembly-line production came into being during, the early 20th century, in particular with the business of auto moving bulk manufacturing. Belt conveyor systems, were created in the first half of the twentieth century as industrialization came into being and production was required to be improved. The automotive industry was the primary, which used the belt conveyor, to move the partially built cars, which were carried from one place to another in the plant with less consumption of energy.

Belt conveyors are used to transport/moving materials from one place to another. The belt conveyor is the most frequently used machine for transportation or say to provide movement to the bulk material.

Benefits of Belt conveyor

The Belt Conveyors are gaining popularity, due to its number of benefits. A belt conveyor uses productive strategies to move components, raw material, or ready material for packaging or maybe truck loading, incurring a low cost, and reducing labor cost.  A belt conveyor may need an adjustment angle of inclination/decline. The material is usually easily accessible on the belt while it is transferred. It can be positioned, virtually any destination.

Maintenance of belt conveyor

The Belt Conveyor can be made more effective through preventive repairs and maintenance. Good care for nearly any component of the mechanism will help to keep it at maximum efficiency, as well as reduce the costs of possible corrections. Although some elements of the Belt Conveyor System to be swapped, sooner or later, such as belts, lots of expensive components typically much less susceptible to degradation.

Neo Conveyors, are serving a group of companies efficiently by providing tailor-made specialized belt conveyors to handle bulk material easily and economically.

Economical and safely materials handling by Incline Conveyors

Economical and safe materials handling by Incline Conveyors

Incline Conveyors, like any other conveyor, serves the purpose of the movement of material. They are used as independent units to move material from one level to another, provided used with gravity conveyor, for continuous flow of material from one floor to another.  They are designed for permanent installation by using pre-designed sections.

The material can be moved forward as well as backward, in both directions. The reverse direction requires the help of the center drive. Incline Conveyors requires support at the top and bottom. The maximum recommended incline is 25º.  As they are inclined, a rough Top belt is used at the top.

In Incline Conveyor, the standard sections are combined to make any length required. They are normally equipped with NOSE OVER at the upper end, which enables the conveyed product to level off to a horizontal position before being discharged.  This is highly desirable for cartons carrying breakables. The nose over eliminates a dropping action by the front of the carton when it reaches the top. Generally, the carton should not exceed the overall width of the conveyor, but if it is wider it should have a flat bottom.

Incline belt conveyor

Neo Conveyors, keep in mind certain facts and factors before they go for incline conveyors. They believe in the satisfaction of their customers, along with, the requirement and logical facts, such as :

  • The kind of material to be moved
  • The angle of incline required
  • Belt to be used to give perfect running
  • Whether, it is a short or long load, as short ones are more vulnerable to toppling.
  • The closer the rollers, the smoother is a ride for each load, avoiding bobbling and rocking, with the help of a slider bed.
  • Right guidance and sorting the needs to be fulfilled.

Steps towards selecting the right Conveyor System??

Selection criteria of conveyor

Selection of Conveyor Systems is in itself a big question n mark – How to start with? where to begin. Selecting the right conveyors and automation is really a daunting task. The first and foremost task, to know your product profile
In the market, there are several types of conveyors to be found. There are customized conveyors designed for a specific use, as well as, other for general purposes. The profile and mix of products you want to convey dictates the type of conveyor needed. To come up with the right decision, you must clearly know the product or package specifications which include.

Selection criteria of conveyor

•Specification regarding the exact size of the product. It’s minimum and maximum (L x B x H) and in the case of circular objects, its diameter.

•Weight of products – Minimum and Maximum.

•Flow of product on conveyor – How many products per minute need to flow on the Conveyor System ? This may be calculated on the basis of your requirement throughout a day, per hour, or per shift, etc.

•Preferred working height of Conveyor system – whether it is to be attached to any existing process, table, conveyors, or machines.

•What is the purpose? – To transport products from one end to another or is it needed for more complex operations. Will this be a standalone conveyor system or will it be a part of an integrated solution attached to other processes?

Thoroughly, know the product or the packaging material that is to be conveyed. Unless the type of packaging or raw product that is to be conveyed has a major implication on the types of solution. As there are various products to be packaged, outbound shipping, internal processes, etc. every product has to be packaged, whether boxes, bags, or mixed bags and boxes.
•Boxes only – The best option is the Roller Conveyors or Belt Conveyors, for boxes, which, generally, works in a fine manner. The weight and size are needed, which will decide, if roller, belt over the roller, or slider belt conveyor.

•Bags – In the case of bags the avoid roller conveyor. The bags may contain a mixed product and may not flow smoothly.

•Mixed boxes and bags – Generally a belt or belt over roller conveyor will be comfortable in this case to handle.

Know your next bottleneck

Nowadays, Conveyors are certainly solving various problems from basic transportation of ready products or the raw material to be required for production, merging several lines of production with a single flow. Conveyors are transforming an operation from manual to an automated work of art.
During the designing phase (whether, be it a simple or complex process/system), it is certainly a good idea to review the processes downstream to anticipate any new bottlenecks that may be created.

Generally, the errors cannot be judged before the operation starts, as Often times productivity increases dramatically and an additional solution may be required for processes such as scanning, weighing, dimensioning, taping, etc.

If any of these processes are manual inputs, it can be easily seen that operators are not able to keep up with the new and faster upstream process.
