Belt Analyst- Pipe Conveyors

The Pipe Belt feature is a versatile design tool that allows the user to easily switch between a Standard belt and a Pipe belt. If you open the program, click on Options in the menu bar, then click Belt Type, you can see that switching between the two is very simple.

There are many variances between designing a standard belt versus a pipe belt. For example, a pipe belt should never be loaded above 66% of the cross section. Also, the drag is increased through every curved section of the conveyor system, so design adjustments might need to be made.

This software add-in can be very useful when applied with the proper design.
