Continental has launched a non-stick conveyor belt in North America, which it says suitable applications where material carry-back is a major concern.
According to Continental, the ContiClean solution can be used for applications that convey sticky materials such as aggregate, titanium dioxide, iron pyrites, silica, compost, de-sulphurised gypsum as well as potash, salt, coal.
Chris Marchant, Continental’s product manager for conveyor belting, says: “This product is especially suited to customers whose applications require aggressive or additional scraper systems to remove the buildup of material adhering to the conveyor cover. Excessive material build-up can transfer to other conveyor components like idlers, and that could lead to tracking issues and damage the conveyor belt and system. Scraping to clean this excess material off is costly and can lead to significant downtime. This proprietary ContiClean compounding solution works to minimize those costly instances.”
The ContiClean non-stick solution is specific to the top cover rubber that is in contact with the material being conveyed. ContiClean is available through Continental’s North American distribution network.
