Impact Resistant Conveyor Belts
Specifically designed to provide strong resistance against objects that might rip through the belt, impact-resistant conveyor belts are used for carrying jagged materials in heavy-duty conditions, especially where large drop heights are involved. Impact-resistant belts operate effectively in this environment due to a special textile or metal weave, known as a breaker.
The material used for the breaker differs, depending on the application: high elongation steel mesh is used as weft cord for increasing lateral strength, while regular steel mesh can be used for increasing lateral stiffness. Breaker material is also available as a fabric weave, featuring increased impact resistance for lighter working conditions, where steel is not needed.
The rubber covers are equipped to handle the impact, minimise rips and tears, resist aggressive wear and reduce gouging and cutting caused by hard, sharp materials.
