Acid and Alkaline Resistant
ChemicalBelt conveyor belts are designed to handle materials containing inorganic acids and bases in the working environment with the action of chemical agents.
The carcass transmits traction forces from energy unit through driving drum to conveyor belt and the transported material. It also provides for high tensile strength and resistance to impact fracture. The carcass can be made of several layers of textile plies rubberized with a special rubber compound safeguarding high resistance to acid and alkaline substances. It is made of polyamid textile (P) or polyester textile lengthwise and polyamid textile in transverse direction (EP).
Rubber covers protect carcass of the conveyor belt against mechanical damage and chemical effects to which the conveyor belts is exposed. The covers must be resistant to aggressive action of transported materials and environment. Good adhesion of the covers and carcass safeguards the transmission of traction forces from driving drum to the carcass. The cover layers are made of special polymers which are resistant to harmful effects of transported materials.
Use of cover grades in relation to the kind of transported material:
C - conveying of materials containing inorganic acids and bases in the working environment with the action of chemical agents
