Conveyor Belt HP = HP = FORMULAS KEY TO SYMBOLS TECHNICAL DATA Belt Length When pulleys are approximately the same size: L = D + d x 31416 + 2C When one pulley is much larger than other (at least 3 or more times larger) L = D + d x 31416 + 2C + (D – d)2 Belt Speed in feet per ,...

Belt Widths The belt widths are as follows: 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 72, 84, and 96 inch The width of the narrower belts may be governed by the size of lumps to be handled Belts must be wide enough so that any combination of prevailing lumps and finer material does not load the lumps too close to the edge of the conveyor belt...
