BELTSTAT Conveyor Belt Design Software

The world’s most trusted belt conveyor design software tool.

The founder of Conveyor Dynamics, Inc. (CDI), Lawrence Nordell, created the first version of the BeltStat belt conveyor design software in 1968. Since then, it has evolved into the most elegant, easy to use and powerful conveyor design programs on the market today. Engineers in over 22 countries around the world use BeltStat to design a wide variety of conveyor belt systems including the strongest and longest overland conveyors in the world.

BeltStat is used in the design of troughed and pipe belt conveyors handling bulk materials. The formulae and calculation methods of BeltStat are based upon the methods and data published by the Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA).  Selected methods have been modified or expanded to meet the requirements of high capacity, high speed, and overland systems.

BeltStat can analyze conveyors of any length and topography with no restriction on belt width or the number of drive stations. The program can analyze downhill and regenerative conveyors. Drives may be conventional head type, tail, and/or intermediate drives of any combination. Both acceleration and braking action can be analyzed using either independently controlled starting/stopping times or controlled acceleration/braking torque. Starting and stopping torques may be proportioned as desired among the multiple drives.

BeltStat is designed to provide flexibility and convenience to the engineer. Where possible, input parameters are optional. If the user does not specify these, the program will either use an appropriate default value or make a selection based on the known variables.

The BeltStat belt conveyor design software has been verified against successfully operating conveyor systems. When used by an engineer familiar with conveyor design methods, the program functions as a powerful design tool, providing uniform, accurate, and rapid computations. The program allows the engineer to easily explore other configurations, such as alternate geometry, drive, and counterweight configurations, which may result in a more economical design.
