In the process of industrial use of conveyor belts, there are different types of heavy and light conveyor belts. Their application scenarios are different, and there are certain differences in performance. The following Huayue conveyor belt manufacturers understand the details of light and heavy conveyor belts. the difference.
First, the material
Light conveyor belts are generally made of PVC, PU, silicone, Teflon, etc. The steel cord conveyor belt material itself is non-toxic and tasteless, and can be in direct contact with the conveyed material. In order to enhance certain properties, certain formulations are changed.
Heavy-duty conveyor belt, mainly made of rubber, has a strong odor and is easy to produce toxic gases. It is suitable for conveying ore, sand and so on.
Second, the pattern
Light conveyor belt, there are many kinds of patterns, such as grass pattern, diamond pattern, single-line pattern, cotton conveyor belt, checkered pattern, etc. According to the different transportation environment, choose different patterns.
The pattern of heavy belt is relatively small, mainly with herringbone pattern, grass pattern and plane, which is suitable for harsh environments such as rock blasting.
There are many thicknesses of light conveyor belts, from the thinnest 0.1mm to the thickest 10mm. According to the size of the conveyor roller, choose the appropriate conveyor belt.
The thickness of heavy-duty conveyor belts is generally thick and heavy above 7mm.
The light conveyor belt is suitable for indoor use and room temperature environment. Depending on the conveying temperature, the formula can be changed to produce cold-resistant conveyor belts or high-temperature resistant conveyor belts.
Heavy-duty rubber belts have stable formulations and are generally used for outdoor transportation to adapt to harsh environments.
V. Applicable industries
Light-duty conveyor belts are mainly used in food, beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, printing, wood, textile, packaging, ceramics, stone, electronics, instrumentation, and tobacco and other conventional material handling systems.
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.
