Sollcnberger, Executive Vice Bres. This lubrication should not occur as the rope enters the driving sheave, but rather as the rope leaves the drive sheave and passes b2.01 a support sheave.

Conveyor Safety Standards

This standard is applicable to continuously-operating equipment and systems designed for the mechanical handling of bulk materials only, including mobile machines. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Section 2 Reference to Other Codes The following codes and standards should be referred to when designing, installing, and operating conveyors or convey- ing machinery. Tramway, A cable supported system in which the travel of the materials handling carriers is continuous over the supports of one or more spans.

As the voice of the U. Two endless chains or other linkage between which carriers are mounted and controlled in such a manner as to remain in the original carrying position at all times. A form of portable drag chain, belt or flight conveyor which, can be placed either beneath or over the rails for the purpose of unloading bulk materials from hopper bottom cars.

Crossing guards shall be ani where the tramways cross highways, railways, or other public passageways. Two endless chains or other linkage cross-connected at intervals by bars or rotatable pushers which move packages, or objects along stationary. J Car-Type H20.1, A series of cars attached to and pro- pelled by an endless chain or other linkage which operates in a defined path. Also does not apply to “integral machine transfer devices”. This code is intended to cover, all installations of the related material handling and passenger, conveyors, either where the installation is of a permanent nature or is only temporary, or where installations for permanent use are arranged for portable operation.

Single or double strands of endless chain supporting spaced, removable asni attached “sticks”, or. Specifies, in addition to the general safety rules set out in ISOthe special safety rules to the following types of conveyors: Conveyor safety standards address safety considerations in design, testing, and use, doing so with a focus beyond other standards that primarily address proper functioning with safety as an indirect result as proper functioning is of course safe functioning.

A series of wheels supported in a frame over which packages or objects are moved manually, by force of gravity or by power. A annsi curved trough over which bulk materials, packages, or objects are lowered in a substantially helical path. OTEor certain belt types, due to their construction, it may not be possible to conduct this test due to the inability of the belt to comply with the requirements of 6.

Cableway, Slack Line or Drag Line Excavator, A cable supported system in which the supporting cable is adjusted in length to provide the lifting functions of the unit.

Such overload devices can. If the operator’s station is at a remote point, similar provisions for stopping the motor or engine shall be provided at the motor or engine location. The conveyors may be of the bulk material, package, or unit handling types where the installation is designed for permanent, temporary, or portable operation. References Other Codes and Standards are cited. Grain and Feed Dealers National Assoc. Manlifts, Reaffirmed The anzi “approved” means approved by the authority having jurisdiction.

The area around these devices should be kept free of obstructions to permit ready access to them and a clear view of them at all times. Webb, Chairman Hi D.


Montgomery, Safety Director, Kenneth B. The lubri- cation of the hauling rope should, preferably be continuous by means of a controlled drop feed from an oil reservoir at one or both ends of the line.

The design and installation of ail conveyor systems should be in the hands of competent engineers, and their operation and maintenance should be in charge of reliable and experi- enced persons. Any type of conveyor in which the ma- terial is carried in a series of buckets. American Institute of Architects, R. Does not apply to “people movers” or conveyor equipment v20.1 standards, as for example mine conveyors.

An endless fabric, rubber, plastic, leather, or metal belt which carries bulk materials, packages, or ob- jects, placed directly upon it; and pulleys for changing the asi of belt travel, driving and adjusting; and rollers, troughing idlers, or wooden or ‘metal’ bed supporting the belt and its load.

Section 8 Inspection and Maintenance Inspection Periodic inspection of the entire conveyor mechanism should be made. Such devices must be designed to quickly shut off the electric power or dis- connect the- conveyor or drive parts from the motive power in the event of overload. Signals for the operation of the rig may be given to a signalman or to, the operator direct.

Clamped ends b2.1 only about 75 per cent of the strength of the rope and therefore are not recom- mended.
