Conveyor Belting

Conveyor Belting

Conveyor belting is utilized to convey product from one point to another. Unlike drive belting in which power and torque is transmitted, conveyor belting is utilized to transport product, facilitating more efficient operations. Conveyor belting is made in numerous styles, materials and specifications. Conveyor belts are driven by two or more pullies and are utilized in material handling operations.

Common conveyor belting is manufactured out of one or more layers of rubber, the under layer being the carcass, and the over layer referred to as the cover. Both the carcass and the cover of a conveyor belt can be made of numerous materials, depending on the application requirements. The choice of material utilized is application dependant. Often cleats will be added for vertical conveying applications. Conveyor belts are often supplied with guides on the underside to help track the belting. Certain applications may require conveyor belting to be manufactured out of steel, often necessary in scrap removal conveyors. Conveyor belts are often manufactured out of food graded material, necessary to safely convey food products.

Because there are so many conveyor belting options, based on target price, life expectancy and most importantly application, please contact Bearing Service to help identify the best conveyor belt material to meet the needs of your particular application.
