CONSIDER THE CONVEYOR ...A GUIDE TO THE SELECTION, CAPACITY AND USE OF CONCRETE CONVEYORS

CONVEYOR CAPACITY FACTORS CONSIDERED ARE: ANGLE OF ELEVATION, SLUMP, CEMENT CONTENT, AND AGGREGATE. THESE FACTORS WILL DETERMINE THE MAXIMUM CAPACITY OF A CONCRETE CONVEYOR AT A GIVEN BELT SPEED. PORTABLE CONVEYORS, FEEDER CONVEYORS AND SIDE-DISCHARGE CONVEYORS ARE DISCUSSED. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT WHILE NO ONE CONVEYOR CAN BE ALL THINGS TO ALL PEOPLE, THE THREE DIFFERENT TYPES CAN BE COMBINED TO HANDLE ALMOST ANY CONCRETE PLACING JOB. SIDE-DISCHARGE CONVEYORS CAN BE PLACED AT RIGHT ANGLES TO EACH OTHER TO SPREAD CONCRETE IN EXTREMELY LARGE AREAS FROM A SINGLE CHARGING POINT. FEEDER CONVEYORS WILL CHARGE SIDE-DISCHARGE CONVEYORS OR PORTABLE CONVEYORS. PORTABLE CONVEYORS WILL CHARGE FEEDER CONVEYORS OR SIDE-DISCHARGE CONVEYORS. THE COMBINATIONS ARE ALMOST LIMITLESS AND THE CORRECT APPLICATION OF THE PROPER TYPE CONVEYOR CAN ALMOST ALWAYS SOLVE A CONCRETE PLACING PROBLEM.
