This paper presents the calculation for conveyor belt for continuous transportation of material. The investigated conveyor is designed for transportation of coal dust, the selected length of the conveyor belt being 300 meters with the rising angle of 10°. The required carrying capacity was 150 tons per hour. All necessary functional components of the conveyor belt were calculated according to the standards, as well as the desired final output. The paper describes the process of selecting conveyor belt speed, belt width, the calculation of operating power, the choice of dimensions of the drive drum and bearing rollers. The standard model for belt conveyor calculation was used. The forces occurring in the process were investigated and the method of force contour calculation was used for control.
