How belt conveyors work?

The belt conveyor consists mainly of two end rollers and a closed conveyor belt tightly fitted over it. The drum that drives the belt to rotate is called the drive drum (drive drum); the other drum that only changes the direction of movement of the belt is called the redirecting drum. The drive roller is driven by a motor through a speed reducer that is dragged by friction between the drive roller and the conveyor belt. The driving rollers are generally installed at the discharge end to increase the traction and facilitate dragging. The material is fed from the feeding end, falls on the rotating conveyor belt, and is transported to the discharge end by the friction of the conveyor belt.
