A mechanical device for preventing a loaded, inclined conveyor or elevator belt from running backwards after the belt has been stopped.
A specific type of internal mixer used to incorporate filler and other ingredients in rubber or plastic operations.
The duck surface of a fabricated article wherein the exposed duck surface is free of any covering.
A belt surface where the textile surface is without any coating. It is usually the back or pulley side of the belt, but the top side could be bareback, as well.
The portion of a closed belt in a closed belt conveyor which remains flat and provides the necessary tensile strength.
Basic tension bearing yarns
One of the two warp systems in a straight warp fabric where the warp yarns are substantially without crimp and provide the tensile strength for the belt.
A fabric with ends of yarn side by side in both the warp and filling in a plain weave construction.
An extruded polymeric compound used to fill the void between butted joint of two pieces of fabric.
A flexible reinforced band placed around two or more pulleys to carry materials from one place to another.
Beams or metal plates secured transversely on both sides of belt ends to hold the ends in a desired position.
Belt cleaning device
A scraper or rotating device pressed against the belt surface to remove material stuck to the belt.
A mechanical system composed of suitable head, tail, bend pulleys and belt idlers or a slider bed to handle bulk materials, packages, or other objects placed directly upon it.
An assembly of power-driven pulley(s) used to transmit torque when initiating and maintaining motion to a conveyor or elevator belt.
An open weave duck made from plied yarns with strength predominately in the warp direction. Used primarily in the manufacture of conveyor belts.
A mechanical device for holding the ends of belt together. There are a lot of different fasteners on the market.
The amount of vertical deflection of a conveyor belt from a straight line between idlers, usually expressed as a percentage of the center to center spacing of the idlers.
Belt tracking switch
A limit switch actuated by the edge of a conveyor belt when the belt moves to either side of its centered path.
Belt training idler
An idler having a belt-actuated swivel mechanism to automatically control side drifting of a conveyor belt.
A system of pulleys arranged to turn a belt over. Frequently used to prevent building-up on return idlers by turning the dirty side (carrying side) up. See also twist.
A mechanism which deflects the conveyed material off of the belt at specific points along the conveyor.
A modified service test in which the service conditions are approximated by means of a simulation in the laboratory.
The force required to induce bending around a specified radius and, hence, a measure of stiffness.
The smaller included angle between the warp yarns of a fabric and the diagonal line across the warp yarns.
A cut of a textile material or belt ends made diagonally at an angle less than 90 degrees to the longitudinal axis.
Material laid on or wrapped around so the warp yarns are at an angle less than 90 degrees to the longitudinal direction.
Binder warp yarn
One of the warp systems in a straight warp fabric interlaced with the filling yarn to provide the strength to hold mechanical fasteners.
Migration to the surface of plasticizer, waxes or similar materials to form a film or beads. See also Bloom.
A raised spot on the surface or a separation between layers usually forming a void or air-filled space in the vulcanized or laminated article.
A discoloration or change in appearance of the surface of a rubber product caused by the migration of a liquid or solid to the surface. Examples: sulfur bloom, wax bloom. Not to be confused with dust on the surface from external sources.
Bolted plate hinge fastener
Steel plates both sides and both ends of two belt ends to be fastened together (secured to the belt with bolts with the ends of the plates constructed into a circular hole for accepting a hinge pin to secure the two ends of the belt(s) together.
The protective rubber cover on the surface contacting the driving mechanism of a conveyor belt.
(1) Curvature from flat plane in the surface. (2) The deviation from the straight line of the fill yarn in a fabric. (3) The deviation from the straight line of a product when unrolled and laid on a flat surface.
A mark or symbol identifying or describing a product and/or manufacturer: may be either embossed, inlaid, or printed.
An open weave fabric used next to the carcass fabric and/or in the cover to improve the attachment of the cover to the carcass and to improve cover cut and gouge resistance.
A deformed ply, usually the result of a fold or wrinkle, which distorts it from its normal plane.
In the operation of a flat press, the alternative application and release of ram pressure to vent trapped air and gases.
