What are the differences between light and heavy conveyor belts?
There are many reasons for the classification of conveyor belts, such as material, size, characteristics and light weight. The application scenarios of different materials and characteristic conveyor belts are different. Misuse can damage the conveyor belt and reduce its service life. Therefore, be sure to understand the difference between different types of conveyor belts when purchasing. Below the conveyor belt manufacturers take everyone to understand the difference between light and heavy conveyor belts.
First, the material
Lightweight conveyor belts are generally made of PVC, PU, silica gel, Teflon, etc. The material itself is non-toxic and tasteless and can be in direct contact with the conveyed material. To enhance certain properties, a recipe is changed.
The heavy-duty conveyor belt is made of rubber and has a large smell. It is easy to produce toxic gas and is suitable for conveying ore and sand.
Second, the pattern
Light conveyor belts, there are many types of patterns, such as grass, diamond, one-line, cloth, square, etc., depending on the transport environment, choose different patterns.
Heavy-duty belt patterns are relatively small, mainly in herringbone pattern, grass pattern, plane, suitable for harsh environments such as mountain blasting.
Third, the thickness
Lightweight conveyor belts come in a variety of thicknesses, from the thinnest 0.1mm to the thickest 10mm, depending on the size of the conveyor drum, the right conveyor belt.
The thickness of heavy conveyor belts is generally thick and heavy at 7mm or more.
Fourth, the use of the environment
The light conveyor belt is suitable for indoor use and is suitable for use in room temperature environment. According to the different conveying temperature, the formula can be changed to produce cold-resistant conveyor belt or high-temperature conveyor belt.
The heavy-duty rubber belt is stable in formulation and is generally used for outdoor transportation to adapt to harsh environments.
V. Applicable industry
Light conveyor belts are mainly used in material conveying systems for food, beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, printing, wood, textile, packaging, ceramic stone, electronics, instrumentation, and tobacco industries.
Heavy-duty conveyor belts are mainly used in mines, ports, power plants, cement plants, steel plants, granaries and other conveying systems with heavy materials and high strength requirements.
