Steel Cord Conveyor Belts - CONTITECH

A Steady Stream of Full Performance – Above and Below Ground

Steel cord conveyor belts ensure maximum conveying performance, even under grueling stress conditions. Their robust design guarantees high tensile strength at maximum conveying capacity as well as excellent impact resistance. Wear-resistant, rot and corrosion-resistant, resistant to chemicals and thermally stable, our conveyor belts provide long years of service while requiring little maintenance.
Rubber Pulley Lagging - CONTITECH

Improving the coefficient of friction in conveyor belt systems

To improve the coefficient of friction between the conveyor belt and the drive pulley and to ensure friction grip even under unfavorable drive ratios – such as, for example, dampness or contamination – the pulleys are lagged with profiled rubber

CONTI® Chevron Belts
Chevron Belts Service-tested in a Wide Range of Applications

Chevron belts carry out a wide range of conveyor tasks in all industries. In addition to a range for normal bulk goods, various special types are available for conveying hot goods, for the transport of goods containing oil and grease, for steep-incline conveying and with special reinforcing materials for particular applications.
Our product range for steep conveyance is differentiated to meet the needs of individual applications. Our chevron belts are equipped with covers of a tried-and-tested, wear-resistant quality. With 10-50 mm high profiles, they are the perfect belt for numerous applications.

Wear-resistant cover with profiles subsequently vulcanized
Flexible profile compounds, profile heights up to 50 mm
Can also be used efficiently with small pulley diameters
Reduction of dirt caking

Widths of up to 1400 mm, belt strength and cover stock grades on request.* Applies only to the cleat type.
These belts, which we have added to our range of stocked items, offer the following advantages:
The profiles on the belts are made of soft material, enhancing the self-cleaning effect
Better formability of the profiles
Low dynamic stress when negotiating around pulleys
Small pulley diameters are possible
Improved troughability
Belt splice is more durable thanks to greater belt flexibility

Faster, Cleaner, Economical

The FLEXOWELL®-conveyor belts are designed for horizontal, steep inclined and vertical handling of all kinds of bulk materials – from coarse-size coal and ore, rock, coarse sand or fertilizers. Lump sizes varying from powdery, floury material up to 400 mm (16") can be handled easily with FLEXOWELL®-conveyor systems. Materials can be carried over 500 m (1,640') in vertical lift with capacities from 1m³/h up to 6,000 t/h.
FLEXOWELL®-conveyor belts are supplied in standard black rubber quality of high abrasion resistance. In addition, other qualities such as heat and oil resistant or flame retardant rubber can be supplied.

The FLEXOWELL®-technology holds all inclined and vertical continuous transport records in the bulk material handling industry …

> over 60,000 installations worldwide
> most experience: FLEXOWELL®-technology in practical operation since 1964
> highest performance: 276 m (905 ft) vertical up to 2.000 t/h (2,204 st/h)
> vertical conveying: up to 500 m (1,640 ft) possible
> widest belts: 3,2 m (10.5 ft)
> highest tensile strength: up to 8.600 N/mm (4,910 PIW)
> lowest belt elongation: by means of high tensile fabric or steelcord members
> highest sidewalls: up to 630 mm (24.8 inch)
> highest cleat profiles: up to 600 mm (23.8 inch)
> worldwide sales: in 45 countries

Outstanding features:
> quick installation
> reduced number of transfer points
> long service life
> reduced power requirements
> quiet running
> reduced maintenance
> environmentally friendly

One of the main advantages of the FLEXOWELL®-belt is that cross rigid base belts can be deflected from the horizontal to an incline or vertical and back again without bowing or sagging.

Contitech Hot Service Belts - Superior Performance!

Coke Plants - Wharf Belts

With Temperature Spikes well above 1000 degrees F , the Coke Oven Wharf Belt is a severe test of Conveyor Belting. Contitech has developed a High Performance EPDM belt with a Fiberglass Breaker that provides rubber cover protection of a constant 400 degree F, with a second line of defense being the 1300 degree F rated fiberglass breaker situated below the top cover but above the reinforced carcass of the conveyor belt. The EPDM compound will give continuous heat resistance for the normal operating conditions, while the fiberglass will insure against the spike of a hot baking load that would cause certain burn through and catastrophic belt failure if it weren't for the fiberglass breaker.

Other Contitech Hot Service Belts :

  • Vulcan 250 - Hot Service Range to 250 degrees F / Good Abrasion Spec
  • Vulcan 300 - Hot Service Range to 300 degrees F / Superior Abrasion Spec
  • Vulcan 400 - Hot Service Range to 400 degrees F / Very Good Abrasion Spec
  • Vulcan 400 SAR - Hot Service to 400 degrees F / Outstanding Abrasion Spec
  • Vulcan OR - Compounded to withstand combination of Heat and Oil
