PVC conveyor belt is one of the most widely used conveyor belts in the market. PVC conveyor belt is used in most food, pharmaceutical and health industries due to its hygiene and high compatibility with food, medicine and health products. In addition, PVC belts have a higher relative resistance to water, steam and heat than other conveyor belts. According to the characteristics that we mentioned; It can be concluded that the PVC conveyor belt is one of the best and most resistant conveyor belts available in Iran and the world.
What is pvc conveyor belt?
PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride and is the third most widely produced plastic product after polyethylene. Therefore, PVC conveyor belt is used in factories and food and health institutions due to its high resistance and durability as well as maintaining the quality and hygiene of products. In addition, the PVC belt is made from one to several layers, depending on the method and amount of use in light, medium and heavy industries, including electronics, food, bakery, baking sweets, meat, chicken, packaging, Working with wood and… is used.
The high variety of PVC conveyor belts in terms of width, thickness, color and type of tread, as well as high resistance to acids and chemicals, has increased the popularity and uses of these conveyor belts.
It is worth noting that: fiber weave and PVC are the two main parts of the PVC conveyor belt. In making these belts, polyester fibers, linen or a combination of both of them are used. The existence of these intertwined fibers creates a strong column in the length and width of the belt and increases the resistance of the conveyor belt.
A conveyor belt is a moving plate made of rubber and metal, which is moved by a motor and a gearbox. This device is used to move and transfer items, products and packages
How does the PVC conveyor belt work?
In these conveyor belts, the surfaces that are in contact with the goods or products are mainly made of smooth or ribbed PVC, and the bottom layers are made of fibers (polyester, linen or a combination of both) and PV. It is thirty. In order to maintain the quality and increase the resistance of the PVC conveyor belt in the last layer, that is, where it is in contact with the rollers and chassis plate, ribbed PVC or synthetic fiber weave is used.
With this, the layers of the conveyor belt increase and become stronger. Of course, in some conveyor belts, linen, polyester and felt fibers are used instead of PVC in the top layer. Punches and hot presses are used for the connections between the conveyor belt and other components. With this, we have tried to ensure that there are no obstacles or bumps in the rotation path during the rotation of the conveyor belt and that the conveyor belt always rotates easily.
Technical specifications of PVC conveyor belt
PVC conveyor belt with excellent resistance to water, heat, chemicals and acid is used in most transformation industries as well as food, pharmaceutical and health products. Flexible, durable and easy-to-use belts have increased the supply and demand of this practical product. These belts are designed and produced in different types and dimensions with different thicknesses. For example, the belts used in the food industry are 5 to 6 mm thick.
While in chemical industries and acid production, conveyor belts with greater thicknesses are used. Because in the design and production of PVC conveyor belts, special attention has been paid to the type and amount of work. In addition, the use of manjid threads in the construction of conveyor belts has increased its strength and resistance. In other words, it has created a strong and integrated taropod along the conveyor belt.
In general, the thickness of the conveyor belt and the fibers and threads used in its production are of great importance. The higher the quality of these components, the better the resistance and performance of the produced conveyor belt.
Feature of PVC conveyor belt
PVC conveyor belt has the following features:
high resistance to water and hot steam; The high resistance of the conveyor belt against water, heat, acid and chemicals has increased PVC conveyor belt compared to other conveyor belts in the market.
It is highly resistant to various rays, especially direct sunlight and UV rays. Therefore, it will be a suitable option for working in tropical and open areas. Compared to this type of conveyor belt, metal belts are of lower quality, because they get rusted and dry due to direct sunlight, and after a while, they move slowly and make noise. Therefore, it should be visited and lubricated continuously.
It is resistant to heat and has antistatic properties.
Suitable for food, pharmaceutical and health industries
The price is right
high abrasion power; Considering that the conveyor belt is continuously moving; It wears and erodes quickly. For this, you should use material and texture that has relatively higher resistance and strength.
resistance to grease, oil and other solvents; Since the components of the conveyor belt are continuously inspected and lubricated; It is always necessary to have a conveyor belt resistant to these solutions.
High resistance to acidic substances
