Optimal Conveyor Transfer Chute Design Considerations ...

2020-7-10 · A belt-to-belt transfer chute is fed material from the upper conveyor. Typically, material waterfalls off the belt into the head chute compartment. From here it falls under gravity with baffles or plates in the drop and loading chutes directing it onto the lower conveyor. Conveyor transfer chutes should not be confused with chute conveyors, despite their similar names. Although still gravity-assisted, chute conveyors provide a slope that packages slide down. 4 Considerations

SIMULATION OF TRANSFER CHUTE OPERATION USING

2014-1-24 · Abstract. Transfer chutes are widely used in mining plants, mainly in the mineral product transfer between belt conveyors. However it is not rare to find chutes with problems like spillage, excessive dust generation, blocking, as well as problem in the belt conveyor such as poor belt alignment, higher impacts on idlers and belt failures (rip or damage). Therefore, it is necessary an accurate chute design before the manufacture where some steps need to be performed: accurate calculation of the trajectory of the material, the control of the material flow and material speed through the transfer, and ensuring the material is presented appropriately to the receiving belt. Therefore, this paper presents a study case of chute design to replace an existing problematic transfer chute of alumina (bauxite processed). The new chute consists of utilization of curve deflector plates inside the transfer (hood and spoon chute) and it is used the Discrete Element Method to assist the design
