Pipe conveyors represent a continuous transport system that is difficult to obtain real operating data from in terms of operational characteristics’ research. That is why the research of these conveyors is mainly supported with the data from special, static testing rigs. However, the measurements do not provide corresponding operating results and can differ from actual operating conditions. That is why, a dynamic testing rig was designed for the research which also represents the smallest pipe conveyor worldwide. The article describes options of conveyor belts and pipe belt conveyor components examination with the use of static and dynamic testing rig, and researches a new design and implementation of a dynamic testing rig - the smallest fully functional pipe belt conveyor in the world with a length of 11 m and belt width of 0.6 m. The said testing device can provide data obtained during dynamic operation of the pipe conveyor, which compared with a static rig increases the accuracy and value of obtained data and results.
