Here is a thorough, up-to-date analysis of belt conveyors and their growing role in the industry today. Originally produced to provide basic engineering data for the design of bulk conveyors, this new second edition contains recent and comprehensively organized information, presented in a practical, reference-book format. Increasing emphasis on ways to solve our energy and environmental problems underscores the advantages of belt conveyors for bulk materials. Their importance as an economical means of transporting bulk materials increases as industry's requirements for financial justification of capital investment and relative costs of operation and maintenance become more stringent. Appropriately, this volume features financial analysis of such applications and includes, with new examples, information on recent developments in the application to automated control of belt conveyor systems of programmable controllers, computers, and multiplexing. Moreover, major changes in the development of conveyor equipment since the publication of the first edition are covered--from available widths, normal operating speeds, and tension capabilities of conveyor belts to new mechanical components that have been developed to enhance performance and durability, such as idlers, drive machinery, pulleys, and many accessories. An entirely updated chapter, specially developed for this edition, focuses on operation, maintenance, and safety. Because of the breadth of its subject matter, this book should appeal to a wide range of professionals in industry.
