Engineering your belt conveyor transfer point

Belt conveyor transfer points are the biggest source of spillage in material handling systems, and conveyor spillage is associated with one-half of all conveying-related accidents that result in worker injuries. Transfer points can also create dust. This article looks at how an engineered design for a belt conveyor transfer point can cost-effectively control spillage and dust. Sections compare conventional transfer point design methods with engineered design methods.

Transferring material from one belt conveyor to another will never be completely trouble-free. But you can minimize spillage and dust problems by regarding a leaking transfer point as an opportunity to reduce your operating costs, increase productivity, and improve working conditions and worker safety.
