How To Choose The Right Conveyor Belt?

May 14, 2019

To get the right conveyor belt, we first need to know the relevant classification of the conveyor belt. Only by correctly understanding the conveyor belt can we better choose the right type.


There are many types of conveyor belts, which are classified according to their use: general purpose conveyor belt, flame retardant antistatic conveyor belt, general flame retardant conveyor belt, heat resistant conveyor belt, high temperature resistant conveyor belt, acid and alkali resistant conveyor belt, oil resistant conveyor belt, cold resistant conveyor. Belt and so on.

Conveyor belts are classified according to structural materials: ordinary cotton canvas conveyor belt, nylon conveyor belt, polyester conveyor belt, steel cord conveyor belt, PVC core conveyor belt, PVG core conveyor belt, steel cable conveyor belt, etc.

Conveyor belts are classified according to product structure: layered conveyor belt, whole core conveyor belt, steel cord conveyor belt, steel cable conveyor belt, tubular conveyor belt, pattern conveyor belt, rib conveyor belt, and reduced conveyor belt.


1. According to the tensile strength of the cloth layer, it is divided into ordinary canvas conveyor belt and strong canvas conveyor belt. The powerful canvas conveyor belt is divided into a nylon conveyor belt (NN conveyor belt) and a polyester conveyor belt (EP conveyor belt).

2. According to the different use environment, it is divided into ordinary rubber conveyor belt, heat-resistant conveyor belt, cold-resistant rubber conveyor belt, acid-resistant conveyor belt, oil-resistant conveyor belt, food conveyor belt and other models. The minimum thickness of the cover rubber on the ordinary rubber conveyor belt and the food conveyor belt is 3.0mm, and the lower cover rubber is at least 1.5mm; the heat-resistant rubber conveyor belt, the cold-resistant rubber conveyor belt, the acid-resistant rubber conveyor belt, and the oil-resistant rubber conveyor belt are covered. The minimum thickness of the glue is 4.5mm, and the lower cover rubber is at least 2.0mm. According to the specific conditions of the use environment, the service life of the upper and lower covers can be increased by a thickness of 1.5 mm.

3. According to the size of the transportation volume, it is divided into common models such as B500B600B650B800B1000B1200B1400 (B stands for width, the unit is mm). At present, the company's maximum production capacity is B2200mm conveyor belt.
