Importance of Fire Resistant Fabric Conveyor Belts

Nov. 03, 2022

It is especially important to use fire resistant fabric conveyor belts in certain specific locations. This is because fire is always a serious safety issue that can damage products, create expensive equipment repair needs, lead to costly time costs and may delay customer delivery requirements. And conveyor systems accelerate the risk of fire damage because fires can be transported at very high rates throughout the plant. It is estimated that the average insurance claim for conveyor-related fires exceeds $8 million.


Fire Resistant Fabric Conveyor Belt


The most common cause of conveyor belt fires is due to friction from pulleys on a stalled or slipping conveyor belt. Stuck idler pulleys and bearings can also generate enough heat on the back of a moving conveyor belt to ignite a fire. The second cause of conveyor belt fires is tracking errors. The friction created by the belt rubbing against the conveyor belt is enough to ignite. Manufacturing facilities with combustible materials that accumulate on their conveyor beds, such as cardboard, oil, chemicals and dust, are highly susceptible to spontaneous combustion from the heat generated under these conditions. 


Unfortunately, environments where manufacturing facilities are susceptible to fire damage are common and sometimes unavoidable. Huayue has developed flame resistant belts in a variety of fabric sizes to reduce your risk.
