UNDERGROUND CONVEYOR BELT TYPES

DEPREUX underground belts, owned and distributed by Cobra America, are fire resistant and comply with MSHA, CAN and ISO fire retardant standards, depending on mine regulations. They come in a product range of 150 PIW to 3200 PIW with a maximum width of 84”.

The DEPREUX brand has more than 100 years of experience in designing safety belts that comply with the various world safety standards. While complying with the standards, DEPREUX has optimized the mechanical parameters for the different conveying applications which will ensure the belt longevity your company needs.

The belts used in underground conveyors are classified into the following categories:

Multi-ply — composed of several plies of fabric that are usually separated by a rubber material. This traditional design provides good impact resistance and has a long-life expectancy.
Straight-warp belts — thick twisted yarns aramid that is protected by a polyamide weft on both sides. Its resistance to impacts and tears is greater than that of steel-cord belts.
Steel-cord designs — steel cables that run along the length of the belts. It has no weft, although it may have a steel or textile breaker in the top cover to increase resistance to tearing.

CONSTRUCTIONS AND COVERS OFFERED BY WEST RIVER CONVEYORS

Firewall I™ — Firewall II™ A plied belt for underground use. Both Firewall I™ and Firewall II™ are belts typically used for the transportation of bulk or other material in various underground mining and quarrying applications or any application in which MSHA Part 14 fire resistance is a requirement. This type of belt has a standard 60″ maximum although DEPREUX can supply wider belt if needed. Benefits of this belt include:

Benefits:

  • Available in tensile strength of 150 PIW to 1400 PIW using 2 to 5 plies with each ply separated by a rubber interlayer which enables the belt to absorb shocks
  • Can be offered in as much as 1300 ft. rolls if required
  • Provides greater impact resistance and a lesser risk of longitudinal tearing
  • Fabrics are dipped with RFL solution to ensure maximum adhesion between the plies

Deltatherm is a multi-plied or solid woven belt option offered as a great alternative to customers who are not subject to MSHA Part 14 regulations. This belt is fire resistant and has higher rubber abrasion resistance. For more information on this type of conveyor belt, please contact West River Conveyors.

Benefits:

  • Used to transport materials with termperatures up to 220°C
  • Tensile strengths of 150 PIW to 1400 PIW
  • Rubber mix used for the layers and other covers is specially selected to withstand the maximum temperature and type of product being transported

Firemaster™ — PVG belt has a single ply textile carcass and rubber or PVC covers. This solid woven belt offers good impact resistance, a long life expectancy and is most often used when long service life is sought. Other benefits include:

Benefits:

  • Complies with MSHA Part 14 standards
  • Higher mechanical corrosion resistance than many other belts
  • More robust carcass and excellent fastener holding ability
  • Best for severe operating conditions
  • Requires less power than steel cord belt to function

Firewall I™ — Firewall II™ plied belt is for underground use. Both Firewall I™ and Firewall II™ are belts typically used for the transportation of bulk or other material in various underground mining and quarrying applications or any application in which MSHA Part 14 fire resistance is a requirement.

  • The Firemaster PVG belt complies with MSHA Part 14 standards
  • Higher mechanical corrosion resistance than many other belts
  • More robust carcass and excellent fastener holding ability
  • Available in a variety of belt widths up to 72″
  • Fire-resistant and complies with the most popular national and international standards
  • Available in single ply, 150 PIW up to 2200 PIW
  • Best for severe operating conditions such as high speed systems, presence of large material, risk of impact damage, longitudinal tearing, or edge wear
  • Require less power than steel-cord belts to function

Regardless of your underground mining application, West River can accommodate other belt types upon request. Please contact us for more information.

SURFACE CONVEYOR BELT TYPES

DEPREUX offers different types of textile or steel conveyor belt for transport of bulk material or other materials on the surface. Each belt is made to fit as closely as possible with the conveyor system parameters, the nature of the material to be transported and the targeted belt life expectancy. DEPREUX offers options for both short and long-distance conveyor systems. Selecting the best belt for a surface conveyor application requires you to consider factors like the following:

  • Maintenance practices
  • Properly designed loading and impact sections
  • Material characteristics
  • Life expectancy
  • The risks of hazards
  • Costs

Delta plied belt is used for transportation of bulk or other material in surface mining and above ground industrial sectors. Delta belts come in many tensile strengths from 150 PIW to 1400 PIW, using 2 to 5 plies. The delta belt carcass is made up of layers of fabric, each separated by a rubber layer.

Benefits:

  • Multi-plied sandwich structure enables the belt to absorb shocks
  • Available in different thicknesses and weights for difference specifications
  • Fabrics dipped with RFL solution designed to ensure maximum adhesion between plies (adhesive high enough to ensure long life expectancy, but not so adhesive that it would hamper splicing)

DX/ST Steel Cord belt is used in a wide variety of applications like mining, harbor terminals, tunneling projects, steel works, cement plants and power generation plants. Steel cord belt has a special rubber-bonding layer to the cables and rubber covers. DEPREUX steel cord belts are the result of 80 years of experience by a knowledgeable production team. Steel cord belts are preferred to textile plied or solid-woven in the following situations:

Best In These Situations:

  • When the required tensile strength is high and the conveyor is narrow
  • When a very low elongation of the belt is required
  • When the life expectancy for the belt is the prime objective
  • When loading and transport conditions are compatible

DELTATHERM belt is used in hot material processing. The DELTATHERM belt carcass is made of alternating textile and rubber layers and an upper and lower outer rubber cover. The upper cover protects the carcass from damage caused by the material being transported while the lower rubber cover protects it from abrasion by the supporting rollers.

Benefits:

  • It can be used for the transporting materials with temperatures up to 220°C
  • Tensile strengths of 150 PIW to 1400 PIW
  • The rubber mix used for the layers and outer covers is specially selected to withstand the maximum temperature and the type of product being transported

No matter your surface mining application needs, West River can accommodate other belt types upon request. Contact us for more information.
