When you use a conveyor belt to transport some oily goods, you will find that the durability and lifespan of your conveyor belt is not as good as before. This is because there are some oily substances that can damage the conveyor belt, but when you choose an oil-resistant conveyor belt, these problems will be solved. As a manufacturer of conveyor belts, I will introduce it to you to answer the question why we choose oil resistant conveyor belts.
Oil Resistant Fabric Conveyor Belt
Some greases such as resins, fats and greases that damage both man-made and natural rubber.
Generally, conveyor belts have poor tolerance to various raw oils and organic solvents.
When transporting oily raw materials, because the raw oil has swelling and adhesion to the rubber, the capacity of the surface rubber is expanded, the structure is loose, the physical properties are reduced, and the service life of the product is reduced.
When oil of any kind penetrates the rubber covers of a conveyor belt it causes the rubber to soften, swell and distort. Although this is often a fairly gradual process, it leads to all kinds of serious problems.
The first is a dramatic decrease in the ability of the rubber to withstand abrasive wear. As the rubber continues to soften it also steadily loses its tensile strength while at the same time becoming much more prone to ripping and tearing.
The next stage is that the rubber begins to swell and distort. This causes steering and handling problems along with a serious reduction in the elongation at break.
The resistance of individual conveyor belts to various oils and organic solvents is relatively poor. The reason why oil-resistant materials can be transported is because the oil has swelling and corrosiveness on the conveyor belt body, which increases the volume of the surface rubber, the structure is loose, the physical and mechanical functions are reduced, and the product life is shortened.
It has good oil resistance and is suitable for transporting oily materials, as well as some occasions that may show oiliness and chemical solvents.
The scope of application of oil resistant conveyor belt
The oil-resistant conveyor belt is made of cotton canvas, polyester canvas, and polyester canvas. It has been refined through injection molding, molding, rubber materials and other production processes. It has relatively good oil resistance and is suitable for conveyor oil-containing raw materials, and some deviations will occur. Site application of dry and chemical solvents.
With the popularity of conveyor belts in industrial production, multiple varieties, high performance, lightweight, multi-function, and long life are several aspects that manufacturers pay attention to. In industrial production, the correct use of conveyor belts is particularly important. The following tips should be paid attention to in the use of oil resistant conveyor belts:
1. Avoid the roller being covered by the material, causing the rotation failure, prevent the leakage of the material from being stuck between the roller and the belt, pay attention to the lubrication of the movable part of the conveyor belt, but do not oil the conveyor belt;
2. Prevent the conveyor belt from starting under load;
3. If the conveyor belt deviates, measures should be taken to correct it in time;
4. When the conveyor belt is found to be partially damaged, use artificial cotton to repair it in time to avoid expansion;
5. Avoid the conveyor belt from being blocked by the frame, pillar or block material, and prevent it from breaking and tearing.
