TB Wood's V-Belt Drive for Sand Mine Conveyors
A reliable belted drive solution was needed by a large mining equipment manufacturer for its moveable inclined conveyors. The belt conveyors are used for stacking material at sand mines and stone quarries.
To meet the application drive requirements, TB Wood’s supplied paired ductile iron, 2-groove, v-belt sheaves. 10 in. dia. sheaves were mounted to the electric drive motor shaft, and larger 20 in. dia. sheaves were mounted to the gearbox to achieve the desired torque and speed.
