How to sove conveyor belt slip on starting

1. Insufficient traction between belt and pulley:

Lag drive pulley; Increase belt wrap; Install belt cleaning devices.

2. Counterweight too light:

Add counterweight or increase screw take-up tension to value determined from calculations.

3. Pulley lagging worn: Replace pulley lagging.
Belt tension too low: Increase the tension in the belt to the appropriate level.

4.Belt damage or wear: Replace the damaged or worn belt.

5.Moisture or debris on belt or pulley surfaces: Clean the belt and pulleys regularly to prevent moisture or debris buildup.

6.Incorrect belt type or size: Use a belt with appropriate characteristics for the specific application, such as material, strength, and thickness.

7.Misaligned pulleys: Adjust or align pulleys to ensure that they are properly aligned and parallel to each other.

8.Insufficient horsepower: Increase the horsepower of the motor driving the conveyor.

9.Inadequate belt support: Provide adequate support for the belt to prevent sagging or bouncing.

10.Improper belt tensioning: Ensure proper tensioning of the belt using tensioning devices such as take-up screws or gravity take-ups.

To prevent slipping of the belt during startup, it is important to ensure sufficient traction between the belt and pulley, adequate belt tension, appropriate belt type and size, and proper belt cleaning and maintenance. In addition, the conveyor system should be properly designed and installed with appropriate belt support and motor horsepower. Regular inspection and maintenance can help identify and address potential issues before they lead to belt slipping.
