Steel Cord Belts
Steel Cord Belts
Conveyor belts having a steel carcass have multiple advantages over the regular fabric reinforced conveyor belts. They can run at higher speeds and longer length. They have inherently high strength and very low elongation which reduces the overall life-cycle cost of running a conveyor. The excellent joint strength and joint efficiency are the qualities which make our MAXX STEELFLEX range of steel reinforced conveyor belts stand out from the rest of the competition.
At ORIENTAL we are proud of our heritage of supplying high quality conveyor belts to discerning customers across the globe.
In 1954 when we manufactured our first conveyor belt, to the introduction of the country’s first Nylon synthetic fabric reinforced belt in 1978, Oriental Rubber has been a pioneer in the design and development of critical applications.
Our proven success in establishing new generation products such as the MAXX ARMOUR and POWERSAVE belts has now led to enhancing our range of the MAXX STEELFLEXTM belts using steel cord as the high tensile bearing member.
In order to complete our portfolio of belts and meet the demands of our valued customers, Oriental is now offering MAXX STEELFLEXTM belts with steel reinforcement upto 2400 mm wide.
With this addition, we are strengthening our partnership with you. MAKING BONDS AS STRONG AS STEEL!
TAKE UP Main function of the take up is to maintain adequate tension throughout the entire stretch of the conveyor belt during its operation and also in the idle condition. The length of the take up is dependent upon the elongation of the conveyor belts. The total elongation of the steel cord belt including permanent and elastic elongation is limited to 0.3%.
The take up length is calculated as
T = 0.3% of C-C distance of conveyor It is however advisable to keep some extra length in the take up for any additional splice required.
Minimum cover thickness of a steel cord belt should not be less than 0.7 times the cord diameter. Grade of the top cover is a function of the characteristic of the material to be conveyed and the operating condition of the conveyor.
QUALITY ASSURANCE ORIENTAL follows a documented quality management system for ensuring reliable and consistent quality. It is certified with ISO 9001:2008 quality management system and has NABL accredited laboratory.
Raw materials are procured from selected vendors as per the agreed specification and undergo qualifying tests as per the quality assurance plan before being used.
The recipe of the rubber mix is formulated to achieve the best of physical properties to ensure a long life of the MAXX STEELFLEXTM conveyor belt. All the batches from the mixer undergo rheological analysis in the Monsanto rheometer.
RIP CHECK BREAKER On request by the customer, Oriental MAXX STEELFLEXTM is embedded with high strength textile weft fabric, to protect the belt from through cut. It hinders the penetration of foreign material into the conveyor belt and acts as a barrier against ripping.
The high elongation of the transverse reinforcement is advantageously used to maintain the flexibility of the belt and does not have any adverse effect on the pulley diameter.
STEEL BREAKER Insertion of steel breaker as transverse reinforcement greatly enhances the rip resistance of the conveyor belt. High flexibility of the steel breaker does not impair the troughability of the belt.
RIP DETECTION SYSTEM This system is used in combination with sensor loop and a series of transmitter and receiver sets with PLC. The sensor loops are embedded under the carry cover of the conveyor belt at regular intervals. As soon as arip is detected the PLC commands the motor to stop, further damage to the belt is thus avoided.
