Calculated center distance
In belt drives, the distance between two shaft centers calculated from pulley diameters and belt length being used.
A machine with three or more internally heated or cooled cylinders used to (1) continuously sheet out polymeric compound or fused PVC (2) to wipe polymeric compound into the interstices of a fabric leaving a small portion of it on the surface of the fabric, or (3) to lay a continuous sheet of compound on a fabric.
The maximum number of pieces, volume, or weight of material a belt conveyor can handle in a given time interval and belt speed.
A rubber protective edge placed around a product internally reinforced with textile or other material.
The fabric, cord and/or metal reinforcing section of any rubber product such as a belt, as distinguished from the rubber cover.
The portion of a conveyor that carries the load between the loading and discharge points.
A film made by depositing a layer of plastic, either molten, in solution, or in a dispersion onto a surface, solidifying and removing the film from the surface.
A type of flexible belt-carrying idler with ends supported in pivoted stands. The tube or rollers sag under the weight of the load to form trough.
An application of cement around the edge of a fabricated product with or without internal reinforcement for protection or adhesion. (A form of Capped Edge.)
The distance between the center of two pulleys or idlers. Also called centers or center distance.
Centrifugal bucket elevator
A type of bucket elevator having a belt which travels at sufficient speed to discharge material from the buckets by centrifugal force.
A relatively open weave duck of approximately square woven construction made with single or ply yarn.
Formation of a powdery surface condition due to disintegration of surface binder or elastomer due in turn to weathering or other destructive environments.
Short shallow cracks on the surface generally due to effect of destructive action of environmental conditions.
A ridge or profile arranged in a Vee shaped configuration on a belt carrying cover to stabilize material carried up an incline.
Highly abrasion resistant elastomeric lining in a chute to protect the metal chute from abrasion wear.
Transverse raised sections on a conveyor belt to stabilize material carried up an incline.
Closed belt conveyor
A moving, endless conveyor belt formed into a tubular shape by joining its edges while carrying material, and opening the edges while in motion to receive and discharge material.
Coefficient of friction
The ratio of the force required to move a package across a belt surface to the weight of the package.
A V-belt cut or produced with a series of evenly spaced V-shaped indentations in the inner face to increase the belt's flexibility.
Usually a squared end belt piece of full manufacturing length but not full manufacturing width. See also slab belting.
Usually the joining of two or more sub-straits together, using a two-part cement that is chemically cured without using supplemental heat from an external source. "Cold bond cement" usually is an uncured mixture of varied elastomers, chemicals, and solvents that will not self-cure or vulcanize until mixed with an activator to create a chemical vulcanization (usually exo-thermic).
A degree of smoothness of an article which is acceptable in accordance with industry practice.
A mixture of a polymer(s) and other materials to give the desired chemical and physical properties in the elastomeric components of a belt.
The deformation in a material remaining after it has been subjected to and released from a compressive force.
When staining occurs on the area of an object directly in contact with the rubber article it is known as "contact stain".
Continuous bucket elevator
A bucket elevator belt that discharges by gravity over the inverted bottom of the preceding bucket on the descending side of the elevator.
A material or a product of known characteristics included in a series of tests to provide a basis for evaluation of other products.
A system for the continuous movement or transport of bulk materials, packages or objects along a predetermined path.
Conveyor belt package deflector
A mechanical diverter placed at an angle across the belt to deflect packages off the belt at specific locations.
Conveyor belt stretch
The increase in belt length which occurs when tension is imposed. Stretch is either elastic or permanent. Elastic stretch is a temporary change in length which varies directly with the pull. Permanent stretch is the residual change in length after tension has been removed; it generally accumulates over a period of time.
A substance consisting of molecules characterized by the repetition of two or more types of monomeric units.
A fabric with plied or cabled yarns in the warp direction and a light weight filling yarn spaced only sufficiently to process the fabric.
In a fabric, the number of warp ends, the number of filling picks, or both in a square inch of fabric.
In conveyor belting, the weight applied to the take-up assembly to maintain proper belt tension.
(1) The deformation occurring with the lapse of time in both cured and uncured rubber, in a body under stress in addition to the immediate elastic deformation. Some related terms and properties are stress-relaxation, hysteresis, damping, flow, compression set and viscosity. See Cold Flow. (2) In belts, the action of a belt alternately losing speed on the driving pulley and gaining speed on the driven pulley.
An auxiliary drive, usually consisting of a small motor and speed reducer, used to keep a belt conveyor in motion at a very low speed during non-operating periods in extremely cold weather. It is used to prevent freezing of a belt and other components.
(1) The waviness of the yarn in a woven fabric. (2) The difference in distance between two points on a yarn as it lies in a fabric and the same two points when the yarn has been removed and straightened. Expressed as a percentage of the distance between the two points as the yarn lies in the fabric.
A pulley with a greater diameter at the center, or other points, than at the edges. There are radial and trapezoidal crowns. Apex crowns are not recommended for industrial belts.
A change in physical properties resulting from the crystalline reorientation caused by temperature.
Time required, at a given temperature, to produce optimum physical properties in an elastomer.
The action of the edges of a belt bending upward on the carrying run and downward on the return run. Also called cupping.
The uncovered edge of a laminated product, such a belt, created by cutting after vulcanization.
