Cotton Woven Conveyor Belts
Conveyor belts are generally used for transportation of light and heavy materials from one place to another. Cotton woven conveyor belts are closely woven cotton fiber in warp and in weft. They are mainly used for conveying light weight materials.
As cotton woven conveyor belts are very closely woven, they are extremely tough and highly flexible. However, when compared with other textile conveyor belts, cotton woven conveyor belts have lower elongation property. Hundred percent virgin cotton yarns are used to make cotton woven conveyor belts. Thus distortions in cotton woven conveyor belts are less at high temperature. Cotton woven conveyor belts are mainly used for short distance transportation of materials such as raw dough, bread pans, bakery products, boxes, glassware and cans textile products. Cotton woven conveyor belts are also used for mechanical fastening.
An upgraded form of the cotton woven conveyor belt is the polyester cotton conveyor belt. It comprises closely woven polyester cotton fibers in warp and cotton fibers in weft. In comparison with other textile conveyor belts, polyester cotton conveyor belts are thinner, lighter and shock resistant. Thus, polyester cotton conveyor belts function better than cotton conveyors, and are widely used for transportation of medium weight materials for medium and short distances. Due to their strength and resistance to moisture, polyester cotton conveyor belts are utilized in all types of conventional conveyor belt applications. They can withstand continuous temperatures up to 225 Fahrenheit, and 275 Fahrenheit of intermittent temperature.
Cotton woven conveyor belts are available in different width and thickness. The most standard width ranges from 6 to 72 ft, and thickness is from 1.5 to 8 mm. Both cut edges and sealed edges types of cotton woven conveyor belts are found in varying width and thickness.
Cotton conveyor belts can be purchased from polyester belts manufacturers, suppliers, exporters, traders and wholesalers. Ravansco and Belting Division C.R.Daniels Inc. are leading manufacturers of cotton conveyor belts. In addition, numerous online stores provide customer designed cotton conveyor belts to meet individual needs.
