Depends on what the conveyor will be conveying really.

As it is with any engineering component you are designing a good place is to start is with documentation and guides supplied by equipment manufacturers.

The Renold company has been manufacturing chain products for a long time and as they want you to use their products with great success they provide documentation and guides to help you design installations using these products. Most equipment suppliers do the same as they all want it to be easy for you to specify their products in your designs. Back in the pre-internet days this required one to keep a library of these publications, now most are available on line
