Belt conveyors are used to mechanise material handling operations in foundries to distribute moulding sand, mould-cores and cast articles. Belt conveyors are used for carrying coal, ores and minerals in power plants, mining industries, metallurgical process plants. For handling food grains and building materials belt conveyors are frequently employed. (a) Capacities of a belt system may range from 500 to 5000 M3 /hr and more. The distance covered for a belt conveyor system be as small as 50 m (for indoor work) to 5 Ian. for supplying raw material from mine area. Used for conveying various bulk and unit loads along horizontal or slightly inclined paths. (b) Used in foundry shop. (c) Used for supplying coal. (d) Transferring building materials, fossil minerals, grains store. (e) Used in wheel excavators (J) Ice-cream plant. (g) Pbwer plants. (h) Bakeries. (i) Confectionery. (J) Feed and flour mills. (k) Laundries. (1) Textile. (m) Ceramic. (n) Chemical plant. (o) Ship yards. (p) Post office. (q) Supply depots.

ADVANTAGES OF BELT CONVEYORS

(a) Noiseless operation. (b) Large length of conveying path (c) Lower power consumption. (d) Long life. (e) Adaptability to different types of goods. (j) Ability to carry almost any bulk material (g) High reliability of operation. (h) Can transport material in any direction.

LIMITATIONS OF BELT CONVEYORS

(a) Accumlation difficult. (b) complicated marshalling (c) The loss of light weight bulk material carried away as dust or spilled from the belt along its path is another objectionable features. (d) Continuous or periodic monitoring of belt is necessary (e) Heat affects the material of belt.
