There are 67 names in this directory beginning with the letter T.
A pulley which can move in space due to gravity, a spring, or other forces in order to maintain relatively constant tension in a specific strand of a belt.
Tape line measurement-maximum length
The inside circumference of a belt measured around the pulley surfaces when the take-up idler(s) are moved out to where they take up all the belt slack their movement permits.
Tape line measurement-minimum length
The inside circumference of a belt measured around the pulley surfaces when the take-up idler(s) are moved in for the installation of the shortest belt possible.
The removal of a ply of fabric in a multi-ply fabric belt to prepare the stepped down configuration for a stepped splice.
At the outside end of a roll of belting, turns of the belting progressively loosened and moved outward from the remainder of the evenly wound turns of the belting.
The lowest tension occurring in a belt in a conveyor or elevator system under operating conditions.
In an operating belt system, the ratio of the larger to the smaller tension as the belt approaches and leaves a driving or driven pulley.
Tension, slack side
In a belt system, where the two portions of the length of a belt on either side of a driving or driven pulley have different tensions, the slack side tension is the smallest of the two.
The tension in an inclined belt caused by the weight of the material being elevated in addition to the belt weight and independent of friction and other sources of tension.
The amount of tension in each of the runs of belting approaching and leaving the take-up pulley, the total of which is the force exerted by the take-up device.
Tension, tight side
In an operating conveyor system, the greater of the tensions as the belt approaches and leaves the drive pulley.
A general term applied to yarn, cord, non-woven, or woven fabric made from a fibrous material.
Capable of being repeatedly softened by heating and hardened by cooling and in the softened state can be shaped by flow.
A thin sheet of un-vulcanized rubber inserted between plies in vulcanized repairs of splices.
Tire bead wire
Steel wire placed in or beneath the top cover to minimize rips in the belt by objects that penetrate the belt.
Top cover wear
The protective rubber cover on the material conveying surface or surfaces of a conveyor belt.
The process of adjusting idlers, pulleys, and loading conditions to insure the belt runs straight.
An idler mounted on a mechanical device, actuated by the belt moving against it to make the belt run straight.
The distance between the last fully troughed idler and the flat driving or discharge pulley.
A troughed belt idler having a lesser degree of trough than the previous carrying idlers.
The joint, across the belt, of two ends of a fabric ply in the belt or cover material.
A mechanism which moves over the carrying surface of the belt and deflects the conveyed material off of the belt.
A fixed or moveable mechanism at some intermediate place in the conveyor system to discharge material from the belt.
The ratio of the deflection of a freely supported transverse section of a belt to the distance between the freely supported ends.
A belt operating in a conveyor system with inclined side idlers to cause the belt edges to turn up and increase the amount of material carried while minimizing side spillage of the material.
The angle troughing idlers are to the horizontal extension of the flat carrying idler.
An idler system which supports a belt in a troughed configuration. Usually it consists of a center horizontal roll with an inclined roll on each side. See also catenary idler.
