Conveyor belt of increased heat-resistanct up to 176°С
The main problem with heat-resistant conveyor belts is their low resistance to high temperatures. The maximum temperature at which the rubber cover does not burn through during the transportation of hot bulk materials does not exceed 200-250C. As the temperature of the material rises, the tape breaks sharply. All attempts to increase the resistance to high temperatures of rubber itself have so far not brought serious success.
The largest metallurgical enterprises in Russia – ChMK, Rusal, MMK, Severstal – are experiencing the need to improve the operational characteristics of conveyor belts with a temperature of the transported cargo of more than 250C in terms of increasing the service life and temperature of the transported cargo.
To solve the problems with increasing the resistance to high temperatures of conveyor belts, the specialists of the Rubex Group have developed a special belt design using composite fabrics. The operating temperature of such materials is 750C – 800C, thermal conductivity is minimal, sparking during the operation of the tape is absent, which allows its unhindered use in mines and other hazardous industries.
Our new RUBEX PLASMA tape with basalt has passed operational tests at one of the largest enterprises of the Mechel holding – the Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant. Tests have confirmed an increase in the resource of the new conveyor belt by 1.5-2 times compared to the T3 standard (in the absence of operational disturbances). In this case, the service life will be at least 6 months at a temperature of the transported cargo up to 300C.
