A continuous series of pockets formed of a flexible material festooned between cross-rods carried by two endless chains or other linkage which operate in horizontal, vertical, and inclined paths.

Section 11 Prime Movers and Controls ,’. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary asi Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Section 2 Reference to Other Codes The following codes and standards should be referred to when designing, installing, and operating conveyors or convey- ing machinery.

The area around these devices should be kept free of obstructions to permit ready access to them and a clear view of them at all times. It is to be noted that in addition to the above listed standards and other regulations, escalators and moving walks may be required to conform to ansii requirements of other standards, as appropriate. This code may be adopted by any such concern as a standard to be followed by its superintendents, foremen, designers, mechanics, ans operators.

The ANSI Standard describes the safe practices to be followed in the design, construction, installation, operation, and maintenance of conveyor equipment. Closely spaced parallel tubes with right and left-hand rounded helical threads rotating andi opposite direction on which bags of other objects are carried while being conveyed.

It is also intended for voluntary use by concerns manufacturing or utilizing conveyor machinery, and equipment. Pivoted Bucket Conveyor, A series of buckets pivotally mounted between two endless chains which operate h20.1 hori- zontal, vertical, and inclined paths. The design and installation of ail conveyor systems should be in the hands of competent engineers, and their operation and maintenance should be in charge of reliable and experi- enced persons.

Cable way, A cable supported system in which the material handling carriers are not detached from the operating span and the travel is wholly within the span. No maintenance allowed when unit is operating except for inspection, lubrication, or adjustment. An endless fabric, rubber, plastic, leather, or metal belt which carries bulk materials, packages, or ob- jects, placed directly upon it; and pulleys for changing the direction of belt travel, driving and adjusting; and rollers, troughing idlers, or wooden or ‘metal’ bed supporting the belt and its load.

This standard is applicable to continuously-operating equipment and systems designed for the mechanical handling of bulk materials only, including mobile machines.

Only commonly known and distinct types of con- veyors are listed. Floor Conveyor, Any of several types of conveyors using chain, cable or other linkage mounted near or flush with ahsi floor.
