Conveyor Belt Vulcanizing NIPL Engineering Pvt. Ltd
Conveyor belts incur damage due to the heavy load they carry. T he damage occurs in the carcass, fabric and covers. The covers ca n be damaged due to cuts, gouges, scoring, tears and rips. The ca rcass can be worn out or punctured while transporting sharp obj ects. The belt has the tendency to fracture or fray at the edges.
Any damage to the belt can lead to halt in the operations for a significant period of time. The hot and cold vulcanizing methods are the most popular methods to repair a conveyor belt without any significant down time. The repair extends the lifetime of the belt drastically. The conveyor belts can be divided into three types: • Nylon Fabric • ST Steel Cord • Flame retardant PVC whole core
The vulcanized splices tend to fail due to poor adhesive properties and the wear may come earlier than expected. The vulcanized belt joints will outlive the mechanical splice. The use of right tools and techniques along with experience in rubber bonding process can improve the conveyor belt vulcanizing and extend its life considerably.
Cold vulcanizing process In this method vulcanized materials like strips and patches are used to repair the conveyor belt. The vulcanization does not use a press but a bonding agent instead. The chemical reaction causes to splice the ends together. Over the damaged area, the vulcanized material is placed and is secured with a bonding agent. The cold vulcanizing is ideal for damages caused due to gouges, scoring, etc.
Hot vulcanizing process In this method the heat and pressure is used to repair the damaged section of the conveyor belt. The splices are heated and cured under pressure using a vulcanizing press. The belt portion that is damaged is removed or trimmed carefully. The new section is bonded using a dhesives or cement. The method is suitable to repair holes, tears a nd cuts in the belt covers, fabric and steel cords.
