BELTING CHARACTERISTICS

XT Rubber Conveyor Belting (conforms to SABS 1173-1977)

  • From the early days of cotton duck piles, progress has been made in the manufacturing of all synthetic piles offering many advantages.
  • The ranges of strengths has been greatly increased, with improvements in the flexible structure. The modern multi-ply belt is manufactured with a synthetic fibre carcass in a wide slab, the split to width as required for individual orders.
  • A wide range of belt specifications is available with current belt constructions having versatile applications.
  • The standard XT belting (Grade N) incorporates covers suitable for the handling of most abrasive materials, having a blend of natural and synthetic rubber.

Cut Resistant XT Rubber Plating

  • Grade M belts have covers with a high natural rubber content recommended for belts operating under extreme arduous conditions where cutting and gouging of covers occurs.

Phoenix Heat Resistant Belting

  • Phoenix Heat Resistant belting covers are styrene butadiene based and are recommended for belts handling materials with temperature up to 120ºC.

Delta Hete Heat Resistant Belting

  • Delta Hete heat resistant belting with EPDM synthetic rubber covers in a formulation developed to allow conveying materials of temperature up to 200°C.

Fire Resistant Belting (conforms to SABS 971-1980)

  • Fire resistant XT belting is manufactured with covers containing neoprene and multi-ply carcass constructions to meet the stringest standards for safety in all underground mining industries and is therefor particularly suited to shaft applications.

Woodmaster

  • This belt has been especially developed for the Timber Industry. The rubber has been compounded to provide resistance to oil and resin, and is non-staining.

Rufftop Belting

  • This is a range of rough top packaging belting, of two or three ply all-synthetic carcass belts with deep impression rubber covers. The range is ideal for the packaging and warehousing industries and baggage handling installations such as airports and railways stations etc.

Food Quality Belting

  • The range is ideal where foodstuff come into direct contact with the belt surface. The range of belting is manufactured from non-toxic materials and is resistant to oils, fats and staining, and meets the strict hygiene requirements laid down by the food processing industry. The two types available are Grey food belting and Salmon pink belting.

Solid Woven (PVC) Belting (conforms to SABS 971-1980)

  • Commonly known as “Vynilplast” solid woven PVC. The construction has inherently high fastener holding qualities. The belting is constructed of polyester and nylon with a cotton armouring, is impregnated with PVC and has PVC covers. These belts have been specially developed to resist impact, tear, rot and abrasion and to meet the most stringent flame resistant standards.

Nitrile Covered (PVC) Belting

  • The nitrile cover on solid woven PVC belts is specifically designed to meet SABS specifications for use in mines, where a fire hazard exists. In general the nitrile cover has good flame-retardant properties and oil, abrasion and heat resistance.

Steelcord Belting (conforms to SABS 1366-1982)

  • Steelcord belting is designed for very long hauls where textile reinforcement would either not achieve the requisite strength or would have too high an elongation at reference load. Resistance to severe shock and exceptional tensile loading is achieved by the wire reinforcement encased between thick top and bottom covers of the highest quality rubber. These belts are designed to conform to or exceed the requirements of stringent standards and offer a long belt life.

Fire Resistant Steelcod Belting (conforms to SABS 1366-1982)

  • Steel cord belting of fire-resistant quality is made with specifically compounded rubbers which render itself extinguishing. Fire-resistant steelcord belting offers great advantages in maintenance-free operation and long belt life for conveyors situated in fiery mines.

Oil Resistant Belting

  • Oil resistant belting provides easily cleanable covers of either nitrile or neoprene on all synthetic fabric piles. Choice of covers gives maximum resistant to mineral and vegetable oils thus permitting the user to convey a wide variety of materials containing mineral and vegetable oils.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

  1. Rip Protector
    As an additional feature, rip protection can be incorporated into the belt by means of arranging strong nylon fibres transversely or by inclusion of electronic loops. The textile rip protection can be built into the belt in 2-meter lengths at regular intervals or over the full length of the belt.
  2. Shuron Breakor Ply (XT Belting)
    For application where the lump size of the material carried is large and where adverse loading conditions exist, and open weave breaker ply can be incorporated below the top cover as an extra precaution for the carcass.
  3. Chevron Breaker (XT Belting)
    This incorporates steel tyre cord in a “V” shape, as a rip protection, at intervals over the belt length. Particularly for XT belting where arduous conditions are experienced i.e slag transportation.
  4. Belt Edges
    Many conveyor belts track off at some stage of their lives, causing edge damage to a greater or lesser extent. Belts can be supplied with either slit or moulded edges.
    Slit Edges: All synthetic constructed carcasses have good resistance to edge chafing, due to modern fibre construction. In addition there is minimal penetration of moisture to the carcass and therefore no problem with carrying out hot vulcanised splices or repairs.
    Moulded Edges: A moulded rubber edge can be provide to protect the carcass from acids, chemicals and oils. In most applications a moulded edge is unnecessary as synthetic fibres will not rot or be degraded by mildew.
