Conveyor belts for the recycling industry

It is hard to imagine any other industry that places such extreme demands on its conveyor belts. Conveyors in recycling and waste plants have to deal with a wide variety of materials including all kinds of hard, sharp objects that cut, gouge and pierce the belts, causing enormous damage. And when these objects become trapped they can completely destroy a belt in the blink of an eye. Mineral and vegetable oil and the numerous other chemicals found in household waste are another deadly killer of rubber belts because it causes rubber to swell and distort, making the belt increasingly difficult to keep running straight. Worse still, the various layers of the belt literally start to seperate. Last but by no means least, the often highly combustible nature of waste means that having belts with first-class fire resistant properties is increasingly important. Fortunately, conveyor belts that can handle all of these challenges with ease is bread and butter to Dunlop.

At Dunlop we supply a range of super-tough belts for recycling and waste management that are highly resistant to abrasion, impact, cutting, chemical substances, oil and of course, fire.

In some applications, especially primary and secondary crushers, even the strongest and heaviest conventional belts can be ripped or torn by large lumps of heavy, sharp objects, either falling from a height or becoming trapped. In extreme cases, belts can be destroyed within a matter of weeks or months.


Dunlop Multiprof is a multi-purpose profiled belt for inclined conveying that has been developed specifically for transporting packaged goods such as boxes, bags, and baggage as well as bulk materials including agricultural products, oily materials, woodchips and wet sand.
