How many do you know about conveyor belt?

The EP conveyor belt is the most expensive and least durable part of the conveyor. During the operation of the conveyor, the conveyor belt is subjected to various properties and sizes and is under extremely complicated stress conditions.

The most typical forms of damage to the EP conveyor belt are: working surface layer and edge wear; breakdown, tearing and peeling caused by the impact of large ore rock; core through the Piccolo and the roller group subjected to repeated bending stress caused fatigue; Under the action, it causes the strength index to decrease and aging and so on. Calculations show that the cost of the conveyor belt accounts for about half of the total equipment cost of the conveyor.

Therefore, according to the use conditions of the conveyor; selecting the appropriate conveyor belt, and strengthening maintenance management during operation, extending its service life, is of great significance to improve the working efficiency of the conveyor and reduce the production cost of the conveyor.

The EP conveyor belts used in general-purpose belt conveyors are available in rubber belts and plastic belts. The rubber EP conveyor belt is suitable for working environment temperature between -10 and +40 °C, and the material temperature should not exceed +50 °C. When the temperature exceeds 50 ° C, the elasticity of the tape begins to disappear, and if the temperature is too low, the tape becomes hard and cracks occur. When the temperature exceeds +90 °C, the fireproof conveyor belt should be used; when the temperature is lower than -15~-55 °C, the cold-resistant EP conveyor belt should be used.
