You can place the base belt to create a single homogenous structure in the vulcanizing press. It is in between the base plate of the press and a chevron mold plate positioned directly below it. The base belt may already also have a specific quantity of fresh rubber on the top cover surface. It is to the volume of rubber needed to achieve the minimum thickness of the top cover of the base belt once you vulcanize it.
Chevron Conveyor Belt Carcasses with Cleated Top Protections Have:
Chevron belts are suitable belts to meet your requirements when higher angles of inclination are essential. For this purpose, experts have developed high-performance and high-quality Chevron conveyor belts. They have long service life and flexibility due to homogeneous Chevron profiles, which can vulcanize with a base belt.
- Low elongation
- Abrasion resistance qualities
- High tensile strength
- Excellent return side support on full-width return idlers
- Greater material stability for inclined angles
You can use the mold plate to make a ‘Single homogenous structure‘ chevron conveyor belt.
The actual amount of rubber needed depends on the design and deepness of the chevron pattern. The upper and lower base plates compression then forces the added rubber to flow into and fill the mold cavities. Vulcanization of both the base belt structure and the rubber-filled molds takes place instantaneously to form a single homogenous unit.
Bearing the technical complication and the higher prices involved, it is not surprising that apart from Dunlop Conveyor Belting. However, hardly any other note manufacturer produces profiled chevron conveyor belts in this way. The significantly superior strength, trustworthiness, and much longer working life created by chevron strapping can make it worth the effort and investment.
Chevron conveyor belts are suitable for:
- salt mines
- lime works
- cement works
- mobile crushers and screens
- road milling machines
- farming: conveying of beets, grains, fertilizers, wooden chips, potatoes
- coal and coke transport
- sugar refineries
Flat Conveyor Belts
They are generally distinguishable through their standard plain rubber design. However, these belts are common in factories, at check-out counters, and on escalators. People can typically use these belts to carry fine to bulky materials – it is easier to transport them during operations.
Some of their other characteristic features include:
- High impact absorption
- Good noise insulation
- Reliable transportation of bulk materials
- Can handle large capacities
- Easy configuration to fit with any application
Patterned Conveyor Belts
In contrast to flat conveyor belts, patterned conveyors are ready to ensure safely conveying items. It can transport at steep angles (from 15° up to 40°). They are best for inclined surfaces – where less space is needed to reach the desired conveying height.
One of the famous patterns is the Chevron design available in V, Y, open V, and open Y belt patterns. Each design is ideal for different uses, but they all display these features:
- Permit water to escape
- Resist abrasion, oil, heat, liquid, and grease
- Low maintenance
