This section outlines the physical dimensions of Aerobelt Conveyors and covers the basic drivers of product throughput and achieved Tonnes Per Hour.
Belt widths on Aerobelt Conveyors vary from 300mm to 1400mm
Capacities - Tonnes Per Hour (TPH)
Belt Width - TPH
- 300 - 400 mm - 10 - 50
- 500 mm - 50 - 100
- 650 mm - 100 - 200
- 800 mm - 200 - 500
- 1000 mm - 500 - 900
- 1200 mm - 900 - 1200
- 1400 mm - 1000 - 1500
The above table are indicative capacities. Final capacity is determined by a number of factors.
- Product density and flow characteristics
- Surcharge angle (Dynamic angle of repose of product on the belt)
- Belt speed achievable with associated feed and discharge points
Aerobelt Conveyor Lengths and Widths
Individual Aerobelt Conveyors range from less than 10 Metres to approximately 630 Metres. Installations of over 800m have been installed using multiple linked conveyors to accomodate both horizontal and vertical direction changes.
Trough Cross Sectional Widths
Typical conveyor trough cross sectional widths for common sizes are:
Belt Width (Flat) - Overall Trough Width
- 400mm - 610mm
- 650mm - 860mm
- 800mm - 1100mm
Typical Cross Section Dimensions
Head and Tail station width varies significantly and is dependent on Drive size, Fan Location, Belt Take Up design as well as project specific arrangement requirements.
