Rubber conveyor belts
Rubber-textile Conveyor Belts are recommended for above and below ground heavy duty applications to minimise rip and tear damage caused by continuing heavy impact, such as large sized lumps, sharp edge materials.
The specific design of the rubber-textile conveyor belt protects itself against wear and damage due to ripping and tearing, abrasion, cutting and gouging. This extends the service life and reduces maintenance downtime.
The most common forms of rubber-textile conveyor belts have a core reinforcement. The typically used material for reinforcing the rubber conveyor belts can be either polyester or nylon, even though aramids have also established their standing in high duty applications. Steel cord reinforced rubber-textile conveyor belts can use brass-coated wire or cables, galvanized steel cables, or brass wire mesh.
The reinforcement cords of the rubber-textile conveyor belts are covered with a layer of rubber whose formulations are similar in composition to those found in wire coat and fabric coat compounds in tyres. The strength requirements to which the rubber-textile belt is designed, dictate the number of layers of reinforcement.
The rubber-textile conveyor belts can handle adverse loading conditions in the most harshest of industries.
Example of industries where rubber-textile conveyor belt are used often are hard rock mining, quarrying, sand and mineral processing, concrete recycling, mobile and fixed plant crushing aggregates as well as other heavy industrial situations.
