How to choose Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts

Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts are one of the important equipment widely used in chemical industry, metallurgy, pharmaceutical, food processing and other fields, its quality is directly related to the stable operation of the production line and the quality of the product. However, with so many types of Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts on the market, it is not easy to choose. Below, this article will start with the factors that need to be considered before purchasing, and introduce how to purchase Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts.

Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts

1. Environmental factors

When choosing Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts, the first thing to consider is the production environment. For example, what substances will the conveyor belt come into contact with? What is the pH of these substances? More specifically, the physical state of the granular material (powder, granules, or lumps) as well as temperature, humidity, and abrasiveness are all factors to consider. Only when these factors are clearly understood, can the Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts of suitable material and model be selected.

2. Material selection

Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts are mainly made of rubber, polyurethane, and polysulfide rubber. Among them, the rubber material has weak wear resistance, but has good acid and alkali corrosion resistance; polyurethane material has good wear resistance, but has certain restrictions on acid and alkali. Although the polysulfide rubber material is better than the acid-base corrosion resistance of the rubber and the wear resistance of the polyurethane, the cost of this material is high and the scope of application is narrow. When selecting materials, factors such as low temperature resistance and tensile strength of the material should also be considered.

3. Specification requirements

In addition to the above two points, the specification requirements of Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts should also be considered when purchasing Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts. Common specification parameters include bandwidth, strip thickness, bend radius, tensile strength, etc. Different production environments require different specifications. For example, in the food processing industry, the surface of the conveyor belt must be smooth and easy to clean, which requires more stringent specifications.

To sum up, the selection of Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts that meet the production requirements requires comprehensive consideration of the environment, materials and specifications. Before purchasing, list all the factors that need to be considered, judge and compare them one by one according to the actual situation, and choose the most suitable Acid and alkali resistant conveyor belts, so as to ensure the stable operation of production.
