A belt conveyor system uses pulleys or drums to keep an endless loop of conveying belts in continuous motion for material handling. Considerations for choosing a suitable conveyor belt system include the physical form of the product, processing requirements, and the desired speed and volume of transportation. Belt conveying systems find numerous applications in the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries such as filling and packaging operations. In the biomass industry, these systems are used for moving biomass feedstock to the boiler. In the mineral industry, conveying belts process and transport granular and crushed minerals. Conveyor belts are heavy-duty machinery that is used to move materials from one place to another. They are commonly used in factories, warehouses, and other industrial settings to move items such as boxes, containers, and other materials along a production line.
