ASGCO® has given attention to offering superior heat resistant belts where the EPDM rubber compounds and the carcass reinforcements have been combined to address virtually every abusive application involving conveying of hot material.
Conventional EPDM heat belts fail, due to the traditional EP (polyester/nylon) fabrics that shrink and degrade under high temperatures causing the conveyor belt to shrink in the middle (material path) and or become wavy on the outside edges of the conveyor belt. ASGCO’s straight warp fabric that is weaved with high-temperature DuPont Kevlar reinforcement, is able to withstand temperatures much greater than traditional fabrics. Kevlar® is inherently flame resistant—protecting against thermal hazards up to 800° degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, Kevlar® fibers won’t melt, drip, or support combustion.
ASGCO’s high-temperature resistant HT2TM (EPDM) over compounds offer the heat protection and abrasion resistance needed for high-temperature applications. HT2 cover compound will prematurely not harden and crack as seen in other types of high-temperature conveyor belts.
- Longer belt life in tough service
- Greater abrasion, rip, tear and impact resistance
- Excellent load support, trough ability, and tracking
- Longer resistance to cracking and hardening
- Rubber covers capable of withstanding elevated
temperatures of +700° F.
