What are you trying to convey?

Conveyor belt

Conveyor belts can be found in almost any industry. Regardless of what you are producing or processing, it’s highly likely that you’re handling something that needs to be transported quickly and efficiently between the steps. It does make a big difference though, whether you’re transporting boxes of chocolate or gummy bears on them or coal and blocks of marble.

Conveyor belts in mines, quarries, fossil power industries and similar operations, tend to get damaged and worn rather quickly. Damages range from thinned areas, small cuts and tears which, if not addressed immediately, can grow bigger with time and eventually cause the entire belt to fail. Depending on the type of the conveyor belt, repair methods traditionally vary from hot vulcanising through mechanical fastening to cold vulcanising. Each of those methods has one or the other downside, like requiring expensive, heavy equipment, reducing the tensile strength of the belt, requiring right-sized spare parts…

However, it’s also possible to use rubber repair resin, such as Loctite PC 7350, which enables in situ repairs and can be done extremely quickly to reduce downtime to a bare minimum. The product is really easy to apply (watch video), cures at room temperature and it’s resistant against chemicals or abrasion. Apart from conveyor belts, same product can be used to repair rubber parts on liners in mills, hoppers, chutes, feeder bowls…

  2. I do trust all of the ideas you have offered to your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    • Thanks very much for your feedback! Well, I try to keep the length of articles digestable for most tastes, so the lengths do vary. Happy to hear though that there are people willing to read longer articles, too 🙂
