To ensure that belts run efficiently on conveyor systems, Ammeraal Beltech through their exclusive Australian distributor Rydell Industrial (Belting) Co , presents a series of belts that offers the potential of considerable energy reduction. The belt selection is a very important factor in saving energy, but not the only one.
Three main factors influence the power demands of a conveyor: the motor efficiency, the conveyor design and the belt selection. Ammeraal Beltech therefore developed the ‘Energy Saving Concept’.
Factors for Power Consumption
Achieving optimum energy savings is the result of minimising unnecessary operation, friction and resistance to forward motion in the system to the greatest possible extent. In conveyor systems, the influence of three basic factors must be considered:
- Conveyor design and component specification
- Drive sizing and mechanical efficiency
- Conveyor belt design properties and characteristics
Less power consumption equates to less operating costs so contact your nearest Rydell branch for more information or samples of the Ammeraal Beltech range of energy saving conveyor belts.
