Choosing the Correct Belt for Your Conveyor
Like most industrial or commercial equipment, corrugated belts come in various designs to suit the needs of various industries. When determining which corrugated conveyor systems to buy, a considerable amount of the purchasing process should be spent focusing on the needs of your specific operations. Considerations include:
Product or Material
Knowing the particular product or material that will be transported is essential in determining the best belt system for the job at hand. The specific needs of your product will help you choose whether you need a belt system with an incline, with cleats or numbs, or whether it will need to be resistant to extreme temperatures.
The style of belt used to transport goods from point A to point B will look quite different than a conveyor that’s used for indexing, positioning, or specialty process. You may want to consider a step above the basic belt for timed or specialty procedures.
Lastly, when choosing a corrugated belt conveyor, think about where it will be in use. Will it be in a temperature-controlled warehouse? Or will it be outdoors or in extreme temperatures? Some belts may be better equipped to handle adverse climates than others.
