  • Repurposing Old Plastic Conveyor Belts

    Thousands of factories all over the world use conveyor belts in their daily manufacturing processes. Many factories use rubber belting for their conveyors, while others use less-traditional belts, like metal, plastic, or cloth belts. All conveyor belts eventually wear out and are unusable as conveyor belts any longer. The amount of rubber conveyor belts that get discarded every year is astonishing. There are millions of pounds of rubber that are discarded every year by factories all over the world. Some factories donate or sell their used rubber belts to recycling...

Industry Information

Plastic Conveyor Belts

Plastic conveyor belts are light weight, temperature resistant components of conveyor systems that are manufactured out of thermoplastic materials, including polyurethane, polyester, polyvinyl chloride, silicone and polyethylene. They provide belting for many different kinds of conveyor systems, including horizontal, inclined, roller, troughed and curved.

While plastic belts are used mostly in factories, warehouses and plants, plastic conveyor belts are also seen in airports, at post offices, packaging facilities, mills and bottling plants. They transport raw materials, finished products, packages or parts, and they are the number-one choice in the food and beverage processing industry because they are easy to clean and sanitize and are non-contaminating. Most plastic conveyor belts are FDA or USDA food grade approved and can handle light to medium duty weights. The meat processing, dairy, vineyard, fruit and vegetable and chocolate industries use plastic for all or most of their conveying needs. These belts come in many different configurations, but most are flexible and easy to install. They exhibit a high resistance to abrasion, cracking, wicking and edge fraying and can handle oils and fats well. Thermoplastics are known for their high resistance to extreme temperatures; plastic belts are fully operational at a temperature range of anywhere from 34ºF to 200ºF.

Like most conveyor belts, plastic belts are commonly run by an electric motor. They are ideal for continuous conveying and come in many different forms. For loose materials, flat, fabric-reinforced belts are used because they are non-porous, watertight and do not contain any holes. This conveyor type is most likely welded together, and like all plastic belts it does not require the use of any adhesives. Other flat top plastic belts are composed of uniform, interlocking plastic pieces. They increase the belt's flexibility and are easy to install and alter if necessary. Other types may be woven, perforated, a grid, ribbed or mesh. These all have holes and are used mainly for larger objects like packages. While plastic conveyor belts are anti-static and non conductive, meaning static electricity sparks are rare, it is best not to convey especially flammable or combustible materials in order to reduce the possibility of a fire. In comparison to metal or rubber conveyor belts, those made from thermoplastics are inexpensive, long-lasting and easy to install.
