|Balanced Weave Belting|
In a previous blog, we discussed how conveyor belts are suited to each processing job—primarily emphasizing the importance of picking the correct weave material. Choosing the incorrect material can damage the product, regardless of whether it is food, steel, or plastic, but we want to highlight something equally as important: weave size.
At Furnace Belt, we research our customers’ products, calculate the best fit, and present our findings. Product size isn’t the standard issue for the products on our belts because we offer a plenty of wire belting solutions, some with more open weaves and some with closed weaves. For example, if the parts on the conveyor belts are small screws, it wouldn’t be wise to use a heavy-duty flat wire belting because the product would fall through… one of our round wire beltings might be more appropriate.
But it’s not just about the size of the weave—we also calculate how the different air flow affects the product and how the belt’s heat absorption factors in. We don’t want to over- or under-compensate, so we make very precise measurements.
Regardless of what you’re manufacturing, our range of conveyor belts are custom crafted for every application, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us at 1-800-354-7213 or check out our website for more information.
