We all know that the conveyor belt on the conveyor is a ring structure, but the conveyor belt sold from the manufacturer is usually not a ring structure. In order to use the conveyor belt normally, we need to bond the conveyor belt. Therefore, the quality of wire rope conveyor belt joint is very important for the subsequent use of the conveyor belt. A good wire rope conveyor belt joint can extend the service life of the conveyor belt and ensure the smooth operation of the conveyor belt in the operation process. Now I'll show you how to install the following connector tips.
1. There are many ways to install the joint. The common methods are mechanical joint, cold bonded joint and hot vulcanized joint. The mechanical joint is generally a belt type buckle joint, which is easy to install. However, the disadvantage is that their efficiency is lower than other joints, and they are easy to be damaged. Despite some shortcomings, mechanical joints are still used by many people. In general, the conveyor belt under Grade 8 Belt should be connected with this joint.
2. There is a cold bonding joint, the principle of which is to mix with cold bonding to form a bond. The mechanical coupling efficiency of this method and the above mentioned one will be higher, but it is not very economical and difficult. It requires high technical conditions, high requirements for adhesives, and the actual situation of use is not very stable. Compared with cold bonding, hot bonding is the most ideal method in practical application. It has the advantages of high efficiency, good stability, long service life and convenient operation. Its disadvantages are complex operation process, high cost and long running time.
3. There is not necessarily only one method for rubber wire rope conveyor belt, but also not only one joint for a complete circular conveyor belt. Different joint methods are adopted according to the needs of bonds. Usually, the joint method of cold rubber joint and hot vulcanization joint is used to strengthen the structure. The above method is the installation method of layered conveyor belt joint.
4. Different conveyor has different installation methods of joints. The conveyor belt with the most difficult joints is PVC and PVG full core flame retardant conveyor belt. Due to the special structure of conveyor belt, it is difficult to install. The mechanical joint is mainly used for the installation below grade 8, and the thermal vulcanization joint is still used for the conveyor belt above grade 8 to ensure the use effect of the conveyor belt. It should be noted that the structure of this joint is finger shaped in order to better connect the joints.
The above is a brief introduction to the joint of the steel wire rope conveyor belt. In order to ensure the normal operation of the conveyor belt, the joint is a very important link. When connecting the joint, it must not be taken lightly.
