Horizontal Curved Conveyors

Horizontal Curved Conveyor

Horizontal curved conveyors are used when overland conveyors are unable to link the loading point and the discharge point in a straight line due to terrain obstructions, right-of-way limitations, or other reasons. These conveyors eliminate the need for one or more intermediate transfer stations. A detailed analysis of the desired geometry and belt tensions ensures the necessary tilting of the idler stations along the curved sections to keep the belt aligned.
