Abstract

The industry requires high working heights of bucket elevators, high performance in transport and speeds under simultaneous reductions in production costs, power consumption, wear, and noise. This calls for the design of transport equipment using innovative approaches in the field to limit all possible losses during the conveyor operation. The loss may be significantly reduced through the choice of right parameters from the very start of the development of the transport equipment, for example:
