# Belt Conveyor Chute Size Calculation

### Calculation of a Belt Chute Cross-section bulk-online Forums

May 02, 2008 Good evening, I'm trying to calculate the optimal size (cross section, dimensions...) of a chutework between two conveyor belts, 48" width each. The expected throughput is 1200 stph, material is hard crushed stone with a size expected around 0 x 12", and certainly slabby material, maybe 15-18" in one dimension. CEMA gives indication on the minimum width, but how to determine the cross section

Belt Widths The belt widths are as follows: 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 72, 84, and 96 inches. The width of the narrower belts may be governed by the size of lumps to be handled. Belts must be wide enough so that any combination of prevailing lumps and finer material does not load the lumps too close to the edge of the conveyor belt.
