what is a pvc conveyor belt?

Jun 13, 2022

(PVC) conveyor belts are the standard conveyor belt in the food industry for basic applications in food processing and handling.

PVC has grown to be the third most widely produced plastic and is known for its durability and ease of use. PVC-coated belts are best suited for material handling, bakery production applications, and meat, fish and dairy processing.

The PVC conveyor belt is a kind of conveyor belt with a synthetic fiber canvas as the core and PVC plastic outer covering, and conveying light or medium weight. The synthetic fiber cores used in this belt include polyester, nylon, vinylon, carbon fiber, etc. PVC tape is generally made of 1 to 3 layers of fabric, each layer of fabric thickness is 0.5 to 0.8 mm.

One of the main advantages of PVC conveyor belts is the wide range of properties of the tape bearing surface. In recent years, because of its high strength, low elongation and good temperature resistance, it has been widely used in PVC light conveyor belts.

These antistatic PVC tapes have good chemical resistance and are also resistant to hot water and steam. Flame retardant models are also available, depending on specific needs and belt manufacturer.

With limited abrasion resistance and limited resistance to solvents, oils and greases, PVC conveyor belts are best suited for fruit and vegetable processing and simple operations with limited special requirements.

For those who are unaware of their food processing specifications, PVC conveyor belts are a solid choice at an affordable price compared to other conveyor belts.
