Replacement Conveyor Belts
Open mesh Teflon® PTFE impregnated fiberglass belting is available in brown or with a black U.V. block coating in widths up to 118" and any length. The fluorocarbon resins used in the curing process are chemically inert, and the woven glass substrate provides exceptional strength and dimensional stability. Its non-stick surface, operating temperature range from -100°F to +550°F and the 70% open area makes this belting the perfect solution for many drying applications such as:
Double Sewn Edges
Standard Alligator Lacing
High Quality Edge Reinforcements
Industry's Heaviest Teflon Coating For Handling Sharp Materials
Temperature Resistance Up To 500oF (287oC)
All Belts come with 5 mm Tear and Crease Resistant Edges
How to measure coated fiberglass belts
There are three ways to quickly and effectively measure the length of the belt you need. It is important to get it right, since these belts are custom made and often times can not be lengthened. They can sometimes be shortened, but that’s an expensive proposition that can be avoided if a little time and the proper technique is applied when taking measurements.
The simplest way to measure a belt is to take the old one off of the machine, lay it on the floor and measure away! Of course, this is seldom an option, as a machine needs to run in order to make money for the company. In addition, you may want to think twice about removing a belt that is operating, since putting it back on and getting it to track correctly can be difficult.
If it’s running and you need it to continue to produce, go to Option II .
Another very easy way to measure your belt is to simply take a non-stretching material
(a good quality wire rope, string, metal tape etc...) and simply loop it around the belt or, in the case of a mesh belt, tie it off and make one revolution. Then measure the string and voila’, you’ve got your belt length.
IMPORTANT: Take note of your pulley locations. Be certain to consider the location of your take-up pulleys in order to allow for future adjustment, tracking and stretching of any belts. Estimate centering of these pulleys to allow for adjustment.
This third option is pretty straight forward when you break it down. Use the example below to learn how to quickly and accurately measure your belt or to determine what belt length you’ll need if designing a new conveyor dryer, shrink tunnel or packaging line.
