The Difference Between Light Conveyor Belt And Heavy Conveyor Belt

May 17, 2019

The difference between a light conveyor belt and a heavy conveyor belt:


First of all, it is the difference in texture.

The thickness of the base belt of the light conveyor belt is generally between 0.6 and 5 mm; the thickness of the base belt of the heavy conveyor belt is generally between 8 and 20 mm.

Second, there are differences in coating materials.

Lightweight conveyor belt coating materials are mainly made of thermoplastic materials such as PVC, TPU, PE, TPEE, etc., and most of them are mainly thermosetting materials such as silica gel and natural rubber; heavy-duty conveyor belt coating materials are natural rubber, nitrile, chloroprene and butyl. Mainly rubber such as benzene.

Again, their skeleton materials are also different.

The lightweight conveyor belt skeleton materials are mainly polyester (PET), nylon (NN, PA) and cotton spinning fabric; the heavy-duty conveyor belt skeleton is mainly made of cotton woven fabric, nylon and steel cord core.

Due to the above structural materials, thickness and the like, the light conveyor belt and the heavy conveyor belt have very large differences in strength, mechanical properties and chemical properties. So their main uses are also very different.


The common types of light conveyor belts and heavy conveyor belts are as follows:

Light conveyor belts include tobacco belts, industry-specific belts, food conveyor belts, wood-based panels for woodworking industry, light food conveyor belts, automotive steel industry belts, green separator belts, anti-static conveyor belts, food PVC conveyor belts, PU Conveyor belt, PE conveyor belt, etc.

Heavy-duty conveyor belts include PVC/G whole core flame retardant conveyor belt, skirt lifting belt, strong conveyor belt, flat belt, coal mine conveyor belt, mine flame retardant conveyor belt, steel mesh conveyor belt, steel cord conveyor belt, steel Cable conveyor belt, conveyor belt, flame retardant conveyor belt, PVC flame retardant conveyor belt, ordinary fabric core conveyor belt, super wear-resistant conveyor belt, nylon conveyor belt, general flame retardant conveyor belt, common flame retardant conveyor belt, steel wire rope flame retardant Conveyor belt, conveyor belt, transmission belt, filter track, Q3210 crawler belt, Q326 crawler belt, herringbone pattern conveyor belt, numb conveyor belt, pitting conveyor belt, pattern conveyor belt, ordinary steel cord conveyor belt, steel wire conveyor belt, steel Cord conveyor belt, steel cord conveyor belt, wire rope conveyor belt, rip-proof steel cord conveyor belt, skirt electronic scale belt, rib conveyor belt, large dip angle conveyor belt, large dip angle rib conveyor belt.
