A Robust Industrial Conveyor System is Valuable Across All Industries

A conveyor belt is the material that carries part of the handling system. Generally speaking, it is wound non-stop on rollers and two end pulleys that rotate and move the belt. The belt could be of any length required for a particular application. The conveyor belt that transports phosphate from the mines in Western Sahara to the coast is over sixty miles long!

 

Conveyor belts can be broadly divided into fabric / steel reinforced belts and wire mesh belts. The choice depends on the type of use.

 

According to beltingedge.com, modern factories use a continuous process to make conveyor belts. In addition to increasing manufacturing efficiency, this method provides longer lengths without splices. This, in turn, reduces the cost of belt installation and maintenance.

To put it simply, a belt is made by embedding the reinforcing material (textile, canvas, nylon, steel cord, or a combination of them) in polymer slabs, usually rubber, and vulcanizing it. To a large extent, the number and type of layers (layers of reinforcing materials) are important factors that determine the strength of the belt.

 

Steel wire reinforced conveyor belts, on which the cables are prestressed, are extra strong. They are mainly used in mining and heavy material handling.

 

Underground mining needs fire resistant belts. The range also includes oil, chemical and hot / cold resistant belts, and acid or alkali proof belts.

 

Wire mesh straps have good heat and cold resistance properties. They come with a selection of mesh types. Some have woven tights. In others, the mesh opening is large and allows for air passage and water jet cleaning. Wire mesh straps can withstand light or heavy loads. They can be used for bakeries, cooking lines and to freeze plants.

 

During a period of operation, the straps are likely to loosen. This can be corrected with the use of tensioners, which can be automatic or manual. A special type of belt is required for high-speed and heavily inclined conveyor systems.

 

The choice of conveyor belt suppliers should be made with expert advice. Manufacturers and consultants would be delighted to be of assistance.
