Sidewall conveyor belt
Sidewall conveyor belt can be used for horizontal, sloping or vertical conveyance and it is one of the most effective ways of elevating materials in a confined space. The economic goal can be achieved by single belt operation and wide range materials can be handled in cases of limited space and strict requirements of no transfer point, low maintenance and big capacity.
It is based on the following main components:
(1) Cross-stabilized Base Belts
Sidewall Conveyor belt has been designed with two corrugated sidewalls and cleats molded to cross-rigid base belt which can carry heavy product loads up to the inclined angle of 75°. This belt is popular where space is at a premium and steep incline angles are desired.
The base belt is designed to bend efficiently in a longitudinal direction and has greater rigidity in a transverse direction by utilizing reinforced fabrics with monofilament, creating a fabric carcass of high tension.
Cross Rigid Conveyor Belt can be deflected from the horizontal to an incline or vertical and back again without bowing or sagging. These deflection points as well as the belt returning on free lateral space by snub idlers definitely require the cross-rigidity of the base belt. The designed mono-filament fabrics provide better return-side support. No wear and tear of cleat and cover rubber is available with various compounds like abrasion resistance oil, heat, and flame resistance.
1. 90-degree inclination
2. High load
3. Save space
An example of base belt indication:
E=Polyester Tension Plies
+1=One Ply of Cross-Stabilized
+2=Number of Separate Cross-Stabilizing Plies
XE+2: is a multiply construction with cut edges based upon carcass of EP fabric and one monofilament ply on each side of the EP carcass integrated into the upper and lower cover.
