• Belt Conveyors for Bulk Materials Fifth Edition Chapter 6

    89 Belt Tension Calculations W b =weight of belt in pounds per foot of belt length. When the exact weight of the belt is not known, use average estimated belt weight (see Table 61) W m =weight of material, lbs per foot of belt length: Three multiplying factors, K t , K x , and K y , are used in calculations of three of the components of the effective belt tension, T

  • proper belt tensioning Bestorq

    Too little tension results in slippage, excess heat, and premature belt pulley wear. Too much tension results in excessive stress on belts, bearings, and shafts. However, there is still a wide range of tension which a belt will operate satisfactorily. The intent is to find this proper range for any VBelt drive.
