Getting maximum output with the minimum downtime.
In today’s conveyor systems the major source of maintenance and maintenance related delays to production usually have a common root cause: the design and functionality of the transfer chutes feeding the conveyors. The Transfer Chute Design Manual brings together the way transfer chute design has evolved, relates the evolution to the underlying design principles that need to be applied to operate to the maximum with the minimum of maintenance consequences.
The theories that make practice perfect.
It also explains how conflicting outcomes can be accommodated and how to assess the compromises that must be made in such circumstances. It explains the theory of transfer design, how to apply the theory and also gives background on techniques that can assist in the design process. It’s best practice thinking.
Get the answers and the formulas.
Finally, it explores more advanced transfer chute design applications and works through transfer design issues and their solutions. There’s a dedicated chapter on material trajectories, which analyses most methods for modelling and predicting material paths, including all the relevant formulae.
200 photos, plus key graphs and illustrations.
The text includes over 200 photos, graphs and illustrations to provide a balance between theoretical and actual working applications. Regardless of the type of material that needs to be transferred, whether it is dusty, wet, heavy or light, The Transfer Chute Design Manual presents a solution.
Troubling shooting and reference guides for today’s professionals.
There are also troubleshooting and quick reference guides as well as sections on advanced modelling and maintenance invaluable to the materials handling design engineer, the maintenance manager and the new mechanical engineer seeking direction and solutions when confronted with conveyor transfer problems.
The optimum Manual.
The Transfer Chute Design Manual will allow the engineer to optimise the transfer of materials while reducing down time and minimising maintenance to bring about a more efficient operation of the total conveyor system.
