Frequently Asked Questions
What Is a Conveyor Belt?
A conveyor belt is the carrying medium of a belt conveyor system, one of the many types of conveyor systems available today. Each conveyor system requires different modules in order to function properly and do the tasks required by the belts.
The different tasks can range depending on the weight required, the speed required, and the throughput of products on the conveyor system.
A conveyor belt system consists of two or more pulleys (referred to as drums), with an endless loop of carrying medium – the conveyor belt – that rotates around them creating a pull effect for the goods it’s carrying. One or more of the pulleys will be powered moving the belt and the material on the belt forward and along the system.
What Are the Different Types of Conveyor Belts?
It’s critical to choose the right type of conveyor belt to ensure safe and reliable operation. Using the wrong belt can lead to catastrophic consequences and unplanned downtime.
These are the different types of conveyor belts available:
Multi-ply—Consists of various layers of fabric separated by rubber, which helps deaden impact. Tend to be longer-lasting and are used for underground applications.
Straight-warp—Ideal for tunneling applications, they’re most often used in rock quarries and rock crushers. Impact and tear resistance are the two premiere attributes, which feature yarns and polyamide on both sides. A straight-warp belt can achieve higher troughability at narrower belt widths and higher PIW ratings.
Steel-cord—Steel cables running the entire length of the belt anchor this type of conveyor belt, which is used for underground applications.
Solid woven belts—These are more popular in Europe and Asia and not used often in the U.S.
Heat-resistant—Designed to withstand high temperatures.
How Do I Choose Conveyor Belts?
You should consider the product that will be transported and the location of the conveyor system when choosing conveyor belts. Specific conveyor belt characteristics to consider include:
Resistance to abrasion
Resistance to fire
Resistance to corrosion
What Sort of Maintenance Do I Need to Do for My Conveyor Belts?
Conveyor belts need maintenance daily, weekly/monthly, and on an as-needed basis.
Daily maintenance includes checking for belt mistracking, belt slippage, material carry-back, greasing roller bearings, and performing scraper maintenance.
Weekly/monthly checks for belt slippage, mistracking, and material carry-back, and repair or replacement of idlers, rollers, and dust containment systems are recommended. Malfunctioning equipment such as scrapers, idlers, belts, and, rollers should be repaired or replaced as needed.
Checklist for conveyor belt inspection and maintenance
Visually inspect the belt and conveyor system for damage
Check for belt mistracking along the:
Misaligned idlers or locked rollers
Faulty chute structure skirting
Material overload on the belt
Crooked belt splices or worn vulcanized belt splices
Perform daily greasing of roller bearings
Visually check for belt slippage by looking for:
Damaged wing or tail pulleys
Material overload on the belt
Check for material carry-back by visually looking for:
Scrapers in poor condition
Improperly installed scrapers
Inappropriate scraper type and size
Perform Scraper Maintenance as needed:
Belt slippage—Check for improperly installed or worn lagging on the head drive pulley
(AKA lagging pulleys). Replace as if needed.
Belt mistracking—Check for dirty, misaligned, or frozen idlers and clean as needed.
Material carry-back—Check for dust and clean as needed.
Replace worn or malfunctioning equipment.
Scrapers—Check scrapers and replace them if needed. Consider using
high-performance scrapers as they will last longer and out-perform the low-quality
Idlers—Inspect your idlers and replace them as needed.
Belt repairs—Repair belts as per the manual.
Idlers and rollers— Repair or replace any broken or bad condition idlers or rollers.
Dust containment system—Repair or replace anything in the dust containment system.
Replace lagging—At an estimated rate of every 3-5 years unless ceramic.
