The Conveyor is a mechanical handling equipment which transmits material from one place to another place .It is mostly used in coal mining, paper and pulp industries, cement factories. In Western Sahara, longest conveyor belt is used for 98km from Bu craa to the coast south of EI-aaiun. These mechanical equipment used for control, storage, products and goods throughout manufacturing, distribution, consumption and disposal of materials at all shapes and sizes. Belt conveyors are mostly used in package handling, raw material handling and used for elevation change or incline/decline applications. The product of weight of the load and speed of the motor to get actual flowrate of solid. We can control the speed of the motor by using PID controller. Load carrying element is a metal or, less frequently, plastic or wood bed consisting of separate slats mounted on one or more free rollers.
