Is a spot on the New York Times best-seller list next? With over 2,200 copies sold since its April 2005 introduction, the sixth edition of Belt Conveyors for Bulk Materials is now available in both CD and print format. The updated second printing incorporates many new application photos and application-specific clarifications related to belt tension and power engineering, as well as editorial changes compiled from user input.
The second print version expands on the initial printing and offers a revised, more accurate formula for use in calculating power requirements. This feature alone makes it the internationally accepted standard for conveyor power calculations. Other significant documentation incorporated in the sixth edition includes limitless length/width combinations of bulk conveyor belt design parameters. This feature provides modern methodology for developing proper tension balances on segmented conveyors of significant length. All charts and equations are now formatted in a manner conducive to computer programming, making engineering calculation and analysis quick and effortless.
