Selection of the Belt Conveyor Shifting Equipment
This paper identifies the components of belt conveyor shifting force as a vertical force, Pv, horizontal force, Ph, and longitudinal force, Pl. A method for estimation of these forces relates their value to the properties of the conveyor structure and rails, shifting operation parameters, and other site-specific conditions. The effect of this force on shifter behaviour is analysed and guidelines are developed for selection of a suitable shifter.
