    A standard rule of thumb is the transition distance should be at least 2.5 to 3 times the width of the belt when in a flattened profile. One of the most destructive forms of belt damage is Junction Joint Failure. This damage is caused by forcing the conveyor belt into a troughing angle sooner than the belt is designed to accept it

    conveyors The function of a belt conveyor is to continuously transport bulk materials of a mixed or homogeneous sort, a variable distance of some metres to tens of kilometres. One of the principal components of the conveyor is the elastomer belt which has a double function : - to contain the conveyed material - to transmit the force necessary
