Slider (Friction Back) Belts
Friction Back Belts
Slider belting is most commonly used in the transportation of individual items and packages but is also used to carry a wide variety of materials. Dunlop slider belts have a special rubber layer that provides the necessary transverse rigidity to create the flat, even surface needed to run smoothly and efficiently. The low friction polyester fabric used on the bottom of the belt provides low power consumption properties. Rufftop and Fishbone profiled covers are often used on slider belts to provide the surface grip needed to avoid slippage when steep inclines are involved.
The carcass consists of either 2 or 3 plies plus low friction (low power consumption) polyester fabric slider-ply.
Slider belting is used on installations where the idlers in the top part have been replaced by wood, metal or plastic slider plates. These installations are ideal for conveying either individual items or raw materials.
Dunlop slider belting is available from stock in 250/2 with high abrasion resistant cover grade and 400/3 with both ROM (vegetable) and ROS (mineral) oil resistant covers. A 250/2 version with a Rufftop profile is also available. Other specifications including a fishbone profile top cover can be made to order. Available in widths up to 2000mm.
