Capotex Belt Conveyor Covers
Conveyor belts are the foundation for transporting bulk materials and represents a significant capital outlay. It’s therefore vital to maximise the safety, functionality, efficiency and productivity of the belt. Conveyor belts exposed to harsh and unpredictable weather conditions like sun, water and wind can slowly wash away conveyed material and ultimately deteriorate your bottom line. Added to this is the DAMAGE you don’t see and the HIDDEN COSTS of unprotected conveyor belts.
Constant and prolonged exposure to UV radiation can ultimately damage conveyor belts through oxidation of the rubber, the consequences are many, including:
- Surface Cracking – can become caught on the belt cleaner and tear the belt
- Loss of adhesive properties – can make the belt difficult to repair
- Reduction in mechanical strength – reduces the belts wear life
- Belt misaligning problems – moisture can potentially seep into the cracks making tracking issues more difficult to isolate.
Environmental and OHS risks – build-up of airborne dust creates OHS hazards and potential roller seizure.
