VENUE Transfer Chute Design - TUNRA Bulk Solids

The design of transfer chutes is commonly developed to fit within predefined structure where the principles for efficient and reliable flow based on physical material characteristics are often overlooked. Such an oversight can result in unfavourable designs associated with blockage spillage belt mis-tracking increased dust emissions and wear.


bulk material from one conveyor belt to another often via a three dimensional path. The importance of correct chute design to ensure efficient transfer of bulk solids without spillage and blockages and with minimum chute and belt wear cannot be too strongly emphasised. The importance is accentuated with the trend towards higher conveying speeds.

For any chute design for transfer of bulk materials under gravity the basic design principles to be considered are as follows. Prevent plugging at impact points. Ensure that the bulk material accelerates or decelerates sufficiently to match the receiving equipment’s speed. Control stream of particles.

Designing reliable transfer chutes with bulk material

For chutes we will check the material velocities and build-up angles with first principle calculations. When the final design 3D model is adequate we will run a DEM simulation of the chute which we then use to optimize the final chute design. Here is a real-case example of a project we worked on for a client.

The chute body should be designed to suit the transfer requirements without changing the direction of the material severely. The area of the chute containing the body of the material flow must be at least 2.5 to 3.0 times the area of the material based on the design capacity of the conveyor and the material speed at the point of consideration.

2. PRINCIPLES OF CHUTE DESIGN. There are five basic design objectives:- to guide material on to a conveyor belt at the speed of the belt in the direction of belt travel. to eliminate material spillage. to enclose material dribbles. to enclose material from operating personnel. to eliminate dust liberation. 3.
