safety hazard exists on conveyor belts at the nip point between the belt and the rollers. Despite these risks, implementation of conveyor guards along their entire length has been seen to date as impractical and cost prohibitive. The solution GHD has designed the Safe Conveyor Frame to provide a cost effective method to prevent the risk of serious

Conveyor belts represent a high risk, because they have the ability to spread a fire over long distances. Fires on belt conveyors are mostly ignited by mechanical failures like frozen idlers, which is even more dangerous in combination with coal dust. The fire safety requirements are similar for the most hard coal mining countries.

Belt Widths The belt widths are as follows: 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 72, 84, and 96 inches. The width of the narrower belts may be governed by the size of lumps to be handled. Belts must be wide enough so that any combination of prevailing lumps and finer material does not load the lumps too close to the edge of the conveyor belt.
According to the belt construction and target application, fabric belts are distinguished in common “conveyor belts” and highly specialized “processing belts”: Conveyor belts The term “conveyor belt” describes belts used to convey all kinds of semi-ﬁ nished …
