How much tension is recommended?

Carey Bienert -

Tension is based on several factors:

  1. The gravitational load to lift or lower the material being transported.
  2. The frictional resistance of the conveyor components, drive, and all accessories while operating at design capacity.
  3. The frictional resistance of the material as it is being conveyed.
  4. The force required to accelerate the material continuously as it is fed onto the conveyor by a chute or a feeder.
