The article considers the state of the study of closed traction circuits used as intermediate drives of main belt conveyors, which showed insufficient experimental investigation of continuous transport vehicles. This circumstance leads to the expediency of developing a test bench for investigating the effect of the intermediate belt drive construction on its working processes. Possible emerging typical defects of belt conveyors, as well as methods for eliminating negative consequences arising during the installation and operation of the machine, are described. On the basis of the resulted defects and operating influences the mathematical model for an estimation of level of the decisions put in design on possible defects of installation and operation of the conveyor belt, approved on the created stand is offered. The procedure for designing a bench to investigate the working processes of an intermediate belt drive of a belt conveyor as well as the manufacturing, assembly, and installation process followed by adjustment are described.
