Project Plan for Conveyor System 

Student Name 


Conveyor system with loading, unloading and material movement: 
The conveyor system consist mainly three elements such as “conveyor belt support”, “pulley/roller” and “drive unit”. As per the customer requirement, the material handling unit design for transfer product from company to new factory. 
For that, the “belt driven roller conveyor system” needs to design. The conveyor system consist mainly three element such as automatic belt conveyor that receive material from company’s warehouse, the roller conveyor which transfer product from company to factory and constructed over the main roadways Chavan, P. (2017).   
The angle between ground level and loading belt conveyor isθ=45°. The clearance between the buildings adjacent to the roadways is 6m. The clearance or vertical distance from road surface and roller conveyor is around 6 m so that it will not interrupt by transportation Brantuo, S. (2009).
length of loadin and unloading  belt conveyor=6/sin45=8.48 ≈8.5 m 
Speed of conveyor belt = πDN
D=Diameter of pulley=30 mm
N=1440 rpm 
Speed of conveyor belt =  (π x0.03 x 1440 )/60=2.26 m/s  ≈2.5 m/s
The products may facility per hours: 
Speed of belt conveyor = 2.5 m/s  
Total length of span to receive and deliver product from company A to Company B = 18 m 
The size of product 1m^3 i.e. minimum 1m occupied over conveyor when one product transfer from company A and company B.  As considering conveyor speed, the 500 products/hours can deliver from company A to B Wang, Y. (2013). 
 Space Require for conveyor system:  
The company A is require for conveyor installation near to dispatch area.  By considering product size with tolerance, the space require for dispatch area is around 7 x 3 m. the detail design or sketch of spaced occupied for loading belt conveyor is provide in Appendix –B.   the space require for company –B for unloading product  is  similar to company-A for easy installation and maintenance Zhang, C. (2015). 
Overhead clearance for roller conveyor across roadways: 
As provided in figure, the roller conveyor passes across the roadways.  The designer ensures that the accident, collision may not occur through roller conveyor when heavy vehicle such as truck passes from that road.  Therefore, the roller conveyor needs certain height or clearance from road surface. According to survey Wan, J. (2013), the maximum truck or heavy vehicle height is around 4.5 to 5m. Therefore, the 6 m clearance between roller conveyor and roadway is suitable to avoid collision and transportation interrupt. 
Support structure: 
	Lubrication oil: as per requirement of conveyor equipment. 
	Grease:  as per requirement 
	Steel ladder (6 x 1 m length): for roller conveyor maintenance. 
	Steel Hand Skiver: for grip while roller conveyor maintenance.   
	Pneumatic air compressor: for   dust, debris cleaning. 
	Color paint: for prevention from corrosion. 
	Steel roof over roller conveyor: protection from rain Zhu, Y. (2014).
