    Author(s): Greg WheatleyGreg Wheatley

    The following report provides a summary of the design and operating parameters for a 10T 90° Turning Frame. The 10T 90° Turning Frame is designed to change the direction of the conveyor belt that is being installed by 90° and also to flip the conveyor belt over. Finite element analysis was used to determine the structural stresses induced by the belt tension during operation. The maximum belt tension was 10 tonnes. The maximum angular deflection from horizontal was also modelled. The stress resulting on the belt was determined to ensure that this did not exceed 2.8MPa which is the maximum the belt can withstand without damage. This report also addresses the lifting of the frame whilst fully assembled. Australian Standard AS3990 Mechanical Equipment – Steelwork has been utilized for determining the suitability of the design. The design meets the requirements of the.. Read More»
