BELT CONVEYORS FOR BULK MATERIALS 1. INTRODUCTION Belt conveyors consist of two powered pulleys with a continuous loop of belting material used to convey products. Belt conveyors are the most economical powered conveyor and are typically used for conveying products over long distances, at high speeds, or for incline/decline applications. JMS was asked to participate by supplying a Distribution Bio-BELT (Belt Conveyor System) with diverter, and four Reversing Bio-BELT (Belt Conveyor System) cross conveyors to distribute biosolids within the storage facility. Seven years after installation, all conveyors are still going strong.
