Objective: To track and align the conveyor belt on the return side of the belt before the loop
take-up section, while leaving the 6 series deflector pulley system with double speed reducers.
Challenge: The challenge involved an extreme incline conveyor belt 96” wide, with tandem
drives and a 6 pulley take-up system. Due to the nature of this Drive system design, along
with the speed of the belt and together with the high tonnage that this system see’s during
each shift, severe belt mis-alignment was a serious problem. The conveyor belt had
tracking problems on the return side of the conveyor, especially through the 6 pulley
take-up system. This was exaggerated because of the incline and belt speed of this system.
