Understand what is a conveyor belt?

May 20, 2021

First, the overview of the conveyor belt.

1. Adhesive tape is one of the main components of the belt conveyor. It runs through the entire length of the conveyor. It is large in quantity and more expensive, accounting for about 50% of the cost of the conveyor.

2. The composition of the conveyor belt: upper and lower covering rubber and belt core.

3. Conveyor belt classification: according to different belt cores, it can be divided into ordinary fabric core conveyor belt and steel wire rope conveyor belt; according to different rubber surface composition: it can be divided into heat-resistant, cold-resistant, acid-resistant, alkali-resistant, oil-resistant, flame-retardant conveyor belts.

Second, ordinary fabric conveyor belts.

Natural rubber is used as the rubber surface, and cotton canvas or nylon canvas is used as the core. The tape with cotton canvas as the core has a longitudinal tear strength of 56KN/m per layer, which belongs to ordinary tape; the tape with nylon as the core has a longitudinal tear strength of 140KN/m per layer, which is a strong tape. The main technical parameters are bandwidth B, canvas layer number Z, working surface and non-working surface covering rubber thickness.

The steel wire rope conveyor belt is made of steel wire rope core and covered with rubber. Technical parameters: Bandwidth, wire rope diameter, number of wires, wire rope gap, upper and lower cover rubber thickness.

Compared with ordinary conveyor belts, steel cord conveyor belts have higher strength, less elongation, good trough formation and long service life.
