### belt conveyors calculations

Belt tension: The belt of the conveyor always experience a tensile load due to the rotation of the electric drive, weight of the conveyed materials, and due to the idlers. The belt tension at steady state can be calculated as:Tb = 1.37*f*L*g*[2*mi+ (2* + mm)*cos (δ)] + (H*g*mm).eqn.1.1 Where,Tb is in Newton.f = Coefficient of frictionL ...
