Slat conveyor working conditions at elevated temperatures

Constructions and Design Engineering

Pairs of slat conveyors are often used in continuous industrial processes, which are often heated. The undesirable convexity of the produced panels often occurs, mainly due to bending deformations of the crossbars of the slat conveyors due to the compression loading of the processed material and due to the non-uniform temperature loads. The aim of this paper is to present a case study of a curing oven for the production of rock-wool insulation panels, focusing on extensive temperature and strain measurements performed on the crossbars during the rock-wool production, and on the presentation and interpretation of the results. The procedure for determining the complex loading condition, with emphasis on determining the contribution of each load to the total deformation of the conveyor crossbars, is given in the form of references for future work.

Host city and venue - Belgrade

Belgrade is the capital and largest city of Serbia and a city of very tumultuous history. Belgrade was the capital of Yugoslavia from 1918 to 1991. It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, where the Pannonian Plain meets the Balkans. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and since ancient times it has been an important traffic focal point, an intersection of the roads of Eastern and Western Europe. Read more...
