scope:

This standard gives guidance in the design and construction of belt conveyors. The standard describes an approximate calculation of the width of the conveyor belt and of the drive power required. The detaild calculation has to be performed according to DIN 22 101.

Belt conveyor applications are multifarious. Belt conveyors can be used for horizontal and uphill/downhill transport of most types of bulk materials such as foodstuffs, coal, ores, limestone, earth, salt, chemicals, slag, cement, grain and other agricultural products. They are extensively used in mining, iron and steel works, coking plants, the chemical, building and cement industries, stockyards and silo plants, power plants, transshipment plants, in brown coal open cast mining, the food-processing industry, etc.

Even great distances up to 100 km and more can be covered by using a line consisting of several belt conveyors. Where large volumes of material to be conveyed are produced in a steady manner, this mode of transport may be economically superior to transport by rail and truck.

Curved (horizontal and/or vertical) belt conveyors are increasingly used in order to realise non-straight conveyor routes.

The growing popularity of belt conveyors is due to the high conveying capacities and long conveying distances that can be realised, the possibility of covering curved routes, their simple construction, a low dead weight as well as their reliability and the fact that they require little maintenance while in operation.

Even at low rates of flow, belt conveyors often achieve economic efficiency.

Discharge conveyors are not dealt with in this standard.
