This book is a comprehensive reference on the science and technology of belt conveyors. The authors provide a balanced view of the technical issues associated with belt conveyors and to assist in the decision-making process when installing belt conveyor systems. A discussion of the history and economics of conveyor applications sets the scene. Chapters explain conveyor design, covering power requirements, belt tensioning, and hardware. Other chapters go over safety considerations, maintenance and monitoring and case studies which illustrate some practical aspects of installation and operation.
