Heat Resistant Conveyor Belts

When the temperature of the materials being transported is higher than 60ºC, a temperature-resistant conveyor belt is both practical and economical – heat can damage the conveyor belt, causing scrapes or cracks between plies, and the softening of the rubber. It can also result in the separation of the rubber and the protecting layers, or of the components between the layers.

Our UKRB temperature-resistant conveyor belts are ideal for conveying hot clinker, sintering materials, chemicals, pellets, fertilisers, cement and other high-temperature materials. The carcass of the conveyor belt is manufactured from polyamide/polyamide (PP), polyamide/polyester (EP), or coated/dipped polyester (EE).

Our temperature-resistant belts are available in two versions:

  • T2 – featuring anti-static properties and resistance to temperatures of up to 130º C;
  • T3 – with anti-static properties and resistance to temperatures of up to 150º C.

The T3 type belts are also supplied with increased resistance to temperatures of up to 180º C if required. We recommend buying belts with covers as thick as possible for maximum efficiency.
