Conveyor belts used in this industry must be able to carry a wide variety of chemicals. They must also be able to carry other materials, such as oil, which can damage the rubber. Other factors to consider include the amount of abrasive wear, high temperatures and the effects of ozone on the rubber.
The chemicals industry is potentially hazardous and there are other important safety considerations, such as the belting’s ability to resist fire.
Production processes for chemicals can create a tough environment, with high standards being the key characteristics of the industry: the cost-effectiveness of the whole operation depends on how durable and reliable the conveyor belts are.
Fire resistant as standard, our extensive range of specialist rubber belting includes multi-functional, high-performance belts that are resistant to chemicals, wear and tear, oil, ozone, high temperatures and ultraviolet.
