EP Conveyor Belt Characteristics And Benefits Of Maintenance

Apr 05, 2019

Mechanical equipment wants to operate normally, and many times it is inseparable from the conveyor belt. 


Polyester conveyor belt, also known as EP conveyor belt, wear-resistant conveyor belt, automatic conveyor belt, cement conveyor belt, high modulus, low elongation, good heat resistance, impact resistance, suitable for medium and long distance, High-density, conveying materials at high speeds. Polyester conveyor belt (EP conveyor belt) is widely used in coal, mining, port, metallurgy, electric power, chemical and other fields to transport materials.

Polyester conveyor belt features:

1. The elongation at constant load is low and the elongation is small.

2, good flexibility, easy to groove.

3, impact resistance, wear resistance.

4. Good water resistance, no tensile strength after damp or water immersion.

5, EP has a high modulus and a lower safety factor when designing the conveyor belt.

6. Good heat resistance.

7, no mold will occur.


Polyester conveyor belt compared to ordinary and nylon conveyor belts:


The technical standard parameters of polyester conveyor belt are compared with ordinary and nylon conveyor belts:


Polyester canvas is used as the skeleton, and its structure is the same as that of ordinary conveyor belt. It has the characteristics of light body, thin, fatigue resistance, impact resistance, good groove formation, low elongation, good thermal conductivity and high humidity. It is a fabric core conveyor belt. Direction of development. The impact-resistant polyester tape with a transversely strong layer has the advantages of a common-type structural polyester tape, and has higher impact resistance and better tear resistance.


What are the benefits of conveyor belt maintenance?

The method of maintenance of the conveyor belt was introduced to you before. Then the wear of the conveyor belt is unavoidable, and the belt wear is not uniform damage of the whole. In many cases, the longitudinal wear of the rubber layer in the section of the belt is normal, while the structure of the rubber layer in other parts is normal, and the overall skeleton of the conveyor belt Preferably, for such a conveyor belt, partial spray recovery is performed, and the advantage of reducing the cost is large. Moreover, the higher the investment cost of the new tape (such as the conveyor belt with a larger bandwidth, the general spraying cost is only 1/4 of the new conveyor belt cost, and the service life reaches 1/2 of the new conveyor belt), the higher the cost performance. Therefore, the spraying can not only reduce the one-time input cost of the conveyor belt, but also save the interest loss caused by the huge amount of money due to time. In addition, the conveyor belt cannot be sprayed indefinitely. As the service life is extended, there are hidden dangers such as internal wire breakage, and it is still necessary to replace the conveyor belt according to the specific circumstances.
