The Durability of Materials That Make Up Conveyors

When our clients choose to invest in a new conveyor for their operation, it’s essential to them that they receive a product that is not only effective but also long-lasting. By prioritizing the durability of materials that make up conveyors, we are able to produce high-quality systems that can withstand the project’s requirements.

Built To the Project

The first thing that our engineers consider when building a conveyor belt for a client is the site’s conditions. They’ll work with clients to identify the local weather, load requirements, environment of the conveyor, power requirements, and more. Then, our application engineers will tailor-make each system so that the durability and framework of the conveyors can handle the weight loads by a minimum safety factor of two.

Once finished with a design, our engineers will then seek approval from clients so that both sides are satisfied with the design and materials of the conveyors. This highly regulated and scrutinized design process is the first step in assuring that only the most effective materials are used for the job.

Type of Steel

the highest quality steel that a mill produces gets designated as prime material, which means that it doesn’t have any imperfections that warrant a downgrading. It also happens to be the only type of steel that we use. By only using the best available steel, our conveyor’s strength and reliability are buoyed.

Metal Coating

To perverse the steel of your conveyor belt from rusting or wearing, we will often use a type of metal coating to protect it. The kind that we use depends on the situation, but we mostly stick with paint coating, powder coating, stainless steel construction, or Hot Dip galvanizing. Also, to ensure that the coats are as effective as possible, we are tedious about the preparation process, employing methods like sandblasting and zinc primer wash before applying our high-quality powered coating.

Welding Processes

Besides the process and coatings placed on the steel, the integrity of the system’s joints is determined by the strength of the welds. As vital as ankles for a runner, a weld binds the parts together, forming one cohesive unit. Whether it is duel shielding, MAG, or other welding methods, we pride ourselves is being able to tweak our builds so that they fit the requirements of the job.
