Install the driven pulley on the conveyor shaft with the key placed correctly.

Next, place the timing belt around both the drive and driven pulley.

The next step is to tension the timing belt using the timing belt tensioner as shown in the installation manual.

You will also need to ensure the driving pulley is aligned correctly with the driven pulley.

Next, tighten the taper lock screws of the driven pulley to ensure it stays aligned.

Next, ensure the timing belt is tensioned correctly and tighten the tensioner screw.

Finally, install the cover of the motor using the cover screws.

How Many Types of Rollers Are There In An Aluminum Conveyor?

Different types of rollers can be used for aluminum conveyors. These conveyor rollers all have pros and cons and are made for various applications.

Conveyor rollers are also referred to as idler rollers.

There are 2 main classes of idlers or rollers in an aluminum conveyor belt, namely:

  • Carry rollers.
  • Return rollers.

Carrying idlers/rollers

Carry rollers or idlers are used to support the conveyor as it carries the load.

Examples of carrying idlers or rollers include:

  • Troughing idlers
  • Impact idlers
  • Picking table idlers
  • Flat carrying idlers/Impact flat idlers
  • Self-training idler

Return idlers/rollers

Examples of return idlers or rollers include:

  • Flat return idlers
  • Rubber disc return idlers
  • Self-training return idlers
  • V-return idlers

What Is The Maximum Number Of Cycles For An Aluminum Conveyor?

Aluminum conveyors have a potentially unlimited amount of operational cycles as long as they are maintained and properly functioning.

Many aluminum conveyors can have over a million operation cycles before you may have to repair or replace their parts.

You must also take proper care of the aluminum conveyor to increase its operational life cycle.

How Long Will An Aluminum Conveyor Belt Last?

Conveyor belts can be made with different materials such as aluminum, steel, or rubber.

For example, conveyor belts can last as many as 3 to 15 years or more with proper maintenance.

But how long the aluminum conveyor belt really lasts depends on factors such as:

  • The ratio of pulley diameter to belt thickness.
  • The amount of stress applied to the aluminum conveyor belt.
  • The design of the belt.
  • The frequency of use.

It would be best if you always used the proper conveyor belts for your specific application to avoid damage to the belts.

What Temperature Do Aluminum Conveyors Tolerate?

Aluminum conveyors can tolerate temperatures as hot as 700 degrees Fahrenheit and temperatures as cold as -25 degrees Fahrenheit.

Aluminum conveyors are commonly used for applications that require high temperatures like cooking sterilization or applications that require very low temperatures like transporting frozen food on the conveyor.

Hot temperatures can expand, warp or deform the conveyor belt. In contrast, cold temperatures can make the conveyor belt brittle.

Cold temperatures can also affect the lubricants and fasteners that are applied to the aluminum conveyor.

The specific temperature that aluminum conveyors can tolerate depends on some factors such as:

The type of conveyor

Some conveyor systems are designed for hot temperatures, while others are designed for cold temperatures.

For example, conveyor systems used during the production of solar panels are made to tolerate hot temperatures of up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit.

The type of belt

The belt used for the conveyor can be made or covered with aluminum, steel, fiberglass, rubber, neoprene, etc.

All These different materials have different tolerances to hot or cold temperatures.

For example, neoprene can tolerate a maximum hot temperature of about 200 degrees Fahrenheit, while neoprene will become unusable in temperatures below 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

How Are Aluminum Conveyor Belts Powdered?

The most common way to powder coat aluminum conveyor belts is by using an electrostatic gun or corona gun to spray the powder on the surface of the belt.

Follow the steps below to powder coat an aluminum conveyor belt:

  • The first step is to prepare the surface of the aluminum conveyor belt to remove any particle or contamination that can affect the powder coat.

You can prepare the surface of the aluminum conveyor belt by cleaning, sweep blasting, or sandblasting and applying phosphate treatment to the surface.

  • The next step is to apply the powder coating to the clean and treated surface of the aluminum conveyor belt.

You can apply the powder coating by using an electrostatic gun or corona gun to spray the powder on the surface.

Powder coating aluminum

Powder coating aluminum

  • The next step is to cure the powder-coated aluminum conveyor belt by heating the belts to melt the powder coat, so the powder forms a solid network-like coat structure.

The heat required to cure powder coating varies depending on factors such as the type of powder coat and the type of metal.

You can also preheat the aluminum conveyor belt before applying the powder coat to the surface. This preheating before coating method is referred to as “hot flocking.”

There are other methods of applying powder coats, such as the electrostatic fluidized bed coating or by using an electrostatic, magnetic brush.

Electrostatic fluidized bed coating requires dipping the material inside an electrostatically charged medium to apply the powder coating.

An electrostatic magnetic brush (EMB) requires using a roller to apply the powder coat on the surface of the aluminum conveyor belt.

The electrostatic, magnetic brush method is suitable for flat materials like flat steel or aluminum.

This method may also be faster to apply and produce a more uniform layer thickness.

What Is An Aluminum Gravity Roller Conveyor?

An aluminum gravity conveyor roller is a type of roller that uses the force of gravity to create a rolling motion to transport goods and products from one section to another.

The gravity rollers are fixed into an aluminum frame that is inclined at a certain angle which causes gravity to move the rollers.

The main benefit of the gravity roller is that it does not require any electrical power to operate.

Which Is Better, An Aluminum Roller Conveyor Or An Aluminum Belt Conveyor?

Aluminum roller conveyors and aluminum belt conveyors are both suitable for different applications.

Aluminum roller conveyors

Aluminum roller conveyors are suitable for moving products with flat surfaces like shipping boxes.

Rollers conveyors are better for round or curved objects because belt conveyors cannot hold them in place.

Roller conveyors are better than belt conveyors for picking and packing applications where cashiers need to quickly push, drag and rotate products before sending them to customers.

Aluminum roller conveyors make it easier for a person to push or drag objects on the surface because of the low friction compared to belt conveyors.

But a drawback of roller conveyors is that the speed is not consistent because a heavier load will move more slowly on the conveyor.

Also, roller conveyors are not suitable for small items that can fall between the gaps of the rollers and get damaged.

Aluminum belt conveyors

Aluminum belts conveyors are suitable for applications that are conveyed vertically.

Vertical conveyors will need the friction provided by the belt conveyor, unlike the roller conveyor, which has lower friction.

A belt conveyor is suitable for applications where you need to maintain alignment. You will need to align some products before performing a repeated action such as tapering or scanning.

Belt conveyors are also suitable for conveying small, irregular shaped, and fragile products that may fall between the gaps of the roller conveyors.

A belt conveyor is also better than roller conveyors when it comes to setting a specific gap between products on the conveyor.

A belt conveyor is also better than a roller conveyor for moving goods when there is an incline or decline in the conveyor system.

What Motor Is Used With An Aluminum Conveyor?

The type of motor used for an aluminum conveyor depends on the size and type of load being conveyed.

AC motors and DC motors are all electric motors , all of them could be used in aluminum conveyors.

Electric motors are connected to the conveyor belt drivers, which rotates and moves the aluminum conveyor belt.

In general AC motor will be driven by alternating , but the DC motors will be driven by direct current.

Thus AC motors have a stronger driving force than DC motors and AC motors could be more  suitable for conveying heavy objects.

Generally AC motors are much better ability which is controlling the speed than DC motors. But DC motors are more suitable than AC motors, where a high starting torque is required.

DC motors are more efficient at conveying smaller products than AC motors.

DC motors may also produce less noise than AC motors.

However DC motors have more requirements about maintenance than AC motors.

What Is A Minimum Speed Of An Aluminum Belt Conveyor?

The minimum speed of aluminum conveyor belts can range from 2 -4 m/s per 1km.

The speed you will need depends on the type of goods and products that is being conveyed.

The high conveyor belt speed can make the process faster but can also reduce the lifespan of the aluminum conveyor belt.

How Much Does An Aluminum Conveyor Costs?

The price of aluminum conveyors depends on factors such as:

  • The type of conveyor
  • Size and thickness of the conveyor
  • Size/Amount of the order
  • Currently price of aluminum

Today, the market prices of aluminum conveyors can range from $2,000 to $15,000 due to various factors.

The specific aluminum conveyor you will need depends on the application it is meant for.

You may also buy aluminum conveyors cheaper if you buy them in bulk.

You can buy from LW to ensure that your bulk order of aluminum conveyors is of the best quality.

What Is The Maximum Capacity An Aluminum Conveyor May Hold?

Aluminum conveyors can hold a weight that usually ranges from 100 kg to 300 kg depending on the type of conveyor and the application it is meant for.

Different types of aluminum conveyors are made to hold different amounts of weight.

For example, aluminum conveyors used in solar panel manufacturing or transporting rocks and coal can carry very heavyweights.

What Is The Lifespan Of Aluminum Conveyor Belts?

Aluminum conveyor belts can last for up 3 to 15 years. But the lifespan of aluminum conveyor belts depends on factors such as:

  • The frequency of use.
  • The ratio of pulley diameter to belt thickness.
  • The amount of stress applied to the aluminum conveyor belt
  • The design of the belt.

You can follow the methods below to improve the lifespan of your aluminum conveyor belt:

Handle conveyor belt properly

You will need to properly handle the conveyor belt to ensure there is no damage or breakage to the conveyor.

Don’t apply too much tension

The tension applied on the conveyor belt should be as low as possible to prevent any wear on the conveyor.

Maintain a clean conveyor belt

Always clean the surface of your aluminum conveyor belt to prevent any form of damage, rust, or corrosion on the surface.

Which Conveyor Belt is Better, Rubber Or Aluminum?

Rubber or aluminum can be used for a conveyor belt, and they both have their pros and cons.

Aluminum conveyor belt

Aluminum is better than rubber for conveyor belt applications requiring high temperatures, such as baking and solar panel manufacturing.

 Aluminum Conveyor

 Conveyor used for baking

Aluminum conveyor belts have a longer lifespan than rubber conveyor belts.

Aluminum doesn’t produce any dust on its surface due to friction during conveying.

Aluminum belts can also be customized with perforated patterns to produce suction, which helps hold the products in place during conveying.

Rubber conveyor belt

Rubber conveyor belts are cheaper than aluminum conveyor belts.

Also, rubber conveyor belts do not need to be lubricated, unlike some metal belts.

But rubber conveyor belts cannot be used for applications that require high temperatures.
