Lauhoff—Saving Energy

Controlling belt speed does not significantly reduce energy costs, as presented in a recent technical paper by Hans Lauhoff: "The energy consumption of long, horizontal belt conveyor systems in stationary operating conditions is determined by the motion resistance."

Design Fundamentals for Drive Systems on Conveyors

The combination of a number of factors can result in conveyor drives being undersized or operating in an unsuitable manner. Some of these factors include:

  • The trend to reduce drive sizes by reducing friction coefficients.
  • The trend towards using squirrel cage induction motors under variable voltage variable frequency controls combined without considering the drive characteristics.

The Right Drive to Maximize Efficiency and Production for Large Overland Conveyors

This paper examines various drive systems available for large overland conveyors, with special attention to starting and operating methods with respect to two most commonplace drives, the VFD (for squirrel cage induction motors) and the SRC, secondary resistive controller, (for wound rotor induction motors).
