When the conveyor stops, production comes to a halt. That’s why it’s essential to have the right conveyor belts for your material transport needs.
Abrasive materials can cause rips and tears. High loads can lead to excessive extension, and when underground, the risk of fire is always a concern. Belt structure and cover must both be up to the task to avoid unplanned downtime and the risk of injury.
West River Conveyors is an exclusive distributor of both underground and surface mining conveyor belts. We can include belts in conveyor package quotes so customers get the best possible deal.

High temperatures, heavy loads, high speeds and long runs mean strength, durability, and conformance to fire regulations are paramount.
The fire-retardant underground conveyor belts we carry comply with MSHA, CAN and ISO standards to protect workers and physical assets from harm. Most underground conveyor belts are narrow and run at high speed for maximum capacity. However, for operations that can use greater widths Depreux conveyor belts are available in widths up to 84”.
Tensile strength, impact absorption and wear characteristics are addressed in three separate constructions: multi-ply, straight-wrap and steel-cord.
Regardless of your underground mining application, West River Conveyors can accommodate other belt types upon request.
For underground operations, West River Conveyors offers Firewall 1™ – Firewall II™, Deltatherm and Firemaster™ belts.Learn More About Underground Conveyor Belt
In surface mining, quarrying, tunneling, harbor or heavy-duty material processing operations the wrong conveyor belt could cost you dearly.
Abrasive materials like clinker, iron ore, quartz, lignite, anthracite, gravel, and sand can rip and tear surface conveyor belts and high loads can cause excessive extension. Matching belt structure, cover, and strength to the load being transported ensures long life and low downtime.
For surface operations, West River Conveyors offers Delta plied belts, DX/ST steel cord belts, and Deltatherm belts from Depreux.
No matter your surface mining application needs, West River Conveyors can accommodate other belt types upon request.Learn More About Surface Conveyor Belt
