For conveying fragile or easily deformable goods such as paper sacks, parcels and cardboard boxes, particularly on conveyors with an incline, it is recommended to use a rough-top conveyor belt. Unlike regular smooth conveyor belts, rough-top conveyor belts have specially designed covers which offer maximum grip to the conveyed goods. The belt covers feature a rough rubber print on the top cover. The rough top is applied using a special process with impression fabric, similar to a mould. The back of the belt can be supplied either with or without a rubber cover, often called dry-back or fabric back belt.
The carcass typically consists of 2,3 or 4 plies of synthetic EP (Polyester-Nylon) fabric, for low elongation and good tensile strength.
BELT WIDTH RANGE
Belts are available from 500mm to 1600mm wide, with cut or moulded edges.
MATERIAL & APPLICATION DATA
Usually supplied with DIN Y, DIN Z or Grade N covers for general applications. Special compounds such as MOR are available on request.
