Jul 16, 2014 Tracking a conveyor belt can be frustrating if you dont start off with all of the components squared up to the conveyor frame. Make sure the head and tail pulley is squared, as well as all of the troughing and return idlers. Typically, the troughing idlers center the belt on the head pulley while the return idlers center the belt on the tail pulley.
Jul 16, 2014 The tail pulley should only be used to tension the belt and not to track the belt. A un-squared belt splice can also throw you off, but you will easily see this problem when you start running the belt. OPERATING AND TRACKING CONVEYOR BELT A Before starting the belt conveyor, make sure all debris, tools and temporary bracing are clear of the belt.
Belts naturally want to walk away from a higher tension. If tension is increased on one side, it will walk the other way. Friction and Tension Combine For Effective Tracking Field testing has proven that a combination of friction and tension is the best way to put a belt back on track when the structure cannot be properly aligned.
The Flexco line of conveyor belt tracking systems and trainers use a combination of friction and tension to correct alignment issues and avoid forces that can damage your conveyor belt and structure. Our unique Pivot and Tilt technology is used in many of our designs to respond and compensate immediately to conveyor belt misalignment.
And if your conveyor belt frame isnt squared up, you will spend a lot more time adjusting your conveyor belt tension and tracking. Homemade frames are particularly challenging in this respect. If you have a conveyor belt that just cant seem to stay in alignment, talk to the belting experts at MIPR.
A tracking and tensioning device for a belt conveyor that provides a tracking assembly that is mounted to the conveyor frame.

The adjustable tensioner provides take-up tensioning at the portion of ...
Dec 01, 2020 A conveyor belt system itself needs to be trained, meaning the belt must be adjusted in such a way that it does not run off track. The first factor to calculate when figuring out conveyor belt tension is the tension needed to move the empty belt, or TC.
Jan 18, 2020 The head and tail pulleys should always be square to each other and the truss frame. The adjusters on the take up are for belt tension, not belt tracking. For full details and a more detailed guide on belt tracking, contact your local Striker rep or dealer.
A tensioning and tracking system with specific useful features for adjusting a conveyor belt is disclosed. Generally, the tensioning and tracking systems include a pair of plate members attached together and defining a channel and an elongated opening. Mounted within the channel is a slide plate having a distal end. Also, connected to one of the side plate members is a rotating member for ...
Properly tensioning a conveyor belt is a critical step in tracking conveyor belts. Getting the correct amount of tension reduces splice failures, excessive stretch, and wear on the side of your frame. Luckily, there is a simple procedure to achieve the proper tension on a belt.
Mar 11, 2020 Conveyor systems are the backbone of industry and are found in many facilities around the globe. Without them, production, testing, assembly, and shipping would come to a screeching halt. One of the most common issues that impacts conveyor operation is belt misalignment and tracking problems. Belt tracking issues occur when the conveyor belt does not
Nov 07, 2013 Belt Tracking amp Maintenance 2013 Belt Tracking Efficiently Safely Reliably The goal in achieving proper and consistent belt tracking is to ensure safe, consistent, trouble-free, economical conveyor system operation in short, to be able to walk away from the system and not worry about its operation for reasonable periods of time.
But properly tracking a conveyor belt doesnt have to be difficult. Here are a few helpful tips to lookout for and an easy, 3-step process to get your belt conveyor running smoothly. Check that the conveyor frame is level and square. At least 90 of the conveyor belts Ive observed mis-tracking can be traced back to being out of level and ...
3 Conveyor Belt Tracking Guide BASIC RULES I. The basic, and primary rule of tracking a conveyor belt is simply THE BELT MOVES TOWARD THAT END OF THE ROLL IT CONTACTS FIRST. II. The conveyor structure must be TRUE relative to center-line and LEVEL side to side.
cleanliness, belt camber, belt tension and squared splices, are also important factors to examine when determining belt tracking concerns. The conveyor belt tracks off, more commonly, on the return side of the belt, causing a wide array of problems rubbing and tearing the conveyor belt edges on the conveyor structure
Because the jack-screw is the only method of adjustment, it must be used for both tensioning and tracking. Once a conveyor belt requires re-tensioning, the jack screws will be adjusted and the tracking settings will be disturbed. Therefore, a tracking adjustment must be performed even though it
Belt tension or tracking needs to be done anytime the belt starts slipping on the drive pulley or the belt starts moving to one side of the conveyor. Tensioning and tracking also needs to be done when a new belt is being installed. The belt is tensioned and tracked with the adjustment bolts as shown. Tensioning the Conveyor Belt Put marks on the un-tensioned belt exactly 100 inches apart.
Launch the conveyor belt in the reverse run, to the tail pulley. The belt must be empty. Check it during three entire revolutions. Re-launch the conveyor in the current direction and wait another three revolutions. Rectify the tension to center of the belt if you tighten on the left side, the belt must moves to the right See figures B amp C
TrackingTraining the Belt Procedures. Training or tracking the belt on your radial stacker or conveyor system is a process of adjusting idlers, pulleys and loading conditions in a manner which will correct any tendency of the belt to run other than centrally.
Belt tracking is the adjustment method used to keep the belt running straight and true on the end rollers and the belt conveyor frame. There are many factors that can affect belt tracking. These include belt splicing accuracy, conveyor roller accuracy, roller size, proper belt tension, side loading on the conveyor belt from pushing product on ...
Oct 15, 2019 Belt engineers worked with the on-site staff to develop a repeatable method to tension the belt within the correct range and to train them on how to correctly install and tension the belt. When installing a stainless steel conveyor belt, proper tensioning is key to ensuring optimal performance and the longevity of the system.
Every non parallel roller can modify the belt tracking. Be sure they are perpendicular too to the belt center line and square with the frame. If the belt excel these tests, it basically be centered, but a final test can confirm this. Launch the conveyor belt in the reverse run, to the tail pulley. The belt must be empty.
Dec 18, 2017 What Causes Conveyor Belt Tracking Issues Stainless steel conveyor belts are virtually non-stretchable and will not yield under tension, which can make tracking more difficult. The belt cannot naturally flex to compensate for factors that will gradually draw the belt off track. Tracking issues are typically caused by Poor system alignment
Screw-adjust telescoping-style conveyor belt tensioners each consist of an adjusting rod that is enclosed in a sealed telescoping tube. As the rod is turned, the tube extends or retracts to adjust the tension on the conveyor belt to ensure proper tracking so that the belt continues to
Conveyor Design Guidelines SELF TRACKING BELT is a friction driven belt system which utilises grooved rollers at both infeed and discharge to maintain belt tracking. The top of the belt is smooth and flat while the bottom underside has crimped lateral weft wires to
Tensioning and tracking systems for optimized production processes Temperature fluctuations, mechanical stress, contamination, and high pressure cause strain on steel belts during daily use. This can lead to premature wear of the belt and imperfect belt tracking, eventually leading to
Conveyor belts are frequently blamed for belt tracking problems and in most cases this is unjustified. The failure cause is usually to be found in the installation itself and may be the result of poorly adjusted pulleys and rollers, incorrect application of belt tracking measures or faulty design.
1. Choose the correct conveyor belt for operation. The conveyor belt you choose must be made of a material that is suitable for the product being conveyed.
