Abstract—Belt conveyor is the transportation of material from one location to another. Belt Conveyor has high load carrying capacity, large length of conveying path, simple design, easy maintenance and high reliability of operation. In this paper the study is on adjustable height of belt conveyor for variable speed moving in different direction of a belt conveyor system. It transfer material in two different destination from a single source. For that it is required to design all the components of belt conveyor like belt width, belt speed, pulley diameter, chute to transfer the material, etc. This paper attempts to discuss the generalized design consideration for adjustable radial belt conveyor.

Index Terms—Belt, Conveyor, Adjustable height, Chute, Radial
