Teflon Belts Guiding

Teflon Belts guiding

The PTFE Mesh Conveyor Belt is an affordable and adaptable solution for any industry with an efficient processor.

The  fixing of PTFE Conveyors uses Eyelets, Grommet, Kevlar Cord, PTFE Cord, Silicone Guide &, etc into the belts, which make them easy to use with simple installation processes

 

What kind of Teflon Belts Guiding methods?

Proper guiding ensures the running and conveying function of the belt. Esone provides different guiding methods as follows:

Springs help lock some belts, which helps convey and keep the belt in place to prevent from shifting.

Both Eyelet and Grommet help protect the holes from breaking with long-time friction.

1. Eyelet

Eyelets are simple devices that use metal stamping machines and procedures.
The whole process begins with PTFE Film or PTFE Coated Glassfiber Fabrics or even PTFE Coated Kevlar Fabrics with reinforcement edges. 
To make sure all the holes are in a rigid line, draw a pre-established trim line early.
Then punch the edges with holes and evenly separate on the edges of the belt. 
Typical eyelet materials include nickel, zinc, titanium, aluminum, and steel.
First, put a ring early over the pre-punched hole in the belt, then press the eyelet into the center of the ring and lock them in place using a pressing machine. 

2. Grommet

A grommet is made from brass or stainless steel, it is a two-part piece of hardware pressing together through a pre-punched hole in a piece of belt. Install the grommet to lock two parts together and sealing the edge fabric in between.  It helps strengthen the holes of the belt, avoids deformation or fraying, and also reduces friction and breaking risk with the smooth metal surface. 

A guide cord is used to prevent deviation in the perfect installation process

Attach a guide cord on the PTFE Conveyor Belt , ensures that there will be no displacement of panels when installation, it is more effective at guiding belts through roller-based conveyor systems.

1. Kevlar Cord

To protect against punctures and abrasion, attach a Kevlar cord to the edge of belts. This strong material can resist worn easily by conveyor operators without having an adverse effect on their performance due to its high tensile strength properties. Normally the size of the kevlar cord is 4mm * 4mm.

2. PTFE Cord

The high-temperature resistance and smooth surface of the PTFE cord help to keep the conveyor belt in a rigid position when installing them on roller-based systems. This not only ensures durability but also increases its lifetime.

Esone provides two sizes: 10mm * 10mm and 4mm * 4mm, you can choose the correct size as per machine roller design.

3. Silicone Guide

Esone has created a new type of flexible, smooth guide for conveyor belts, that is Silicone Guide. The silicone guidance is 100% cast with silicone and features stronger stitching with PTFE/kevlar thread on its wings to attach it securely to your belt. Unlike special twisting PTFE or Kevlar Cord which with various yarns, this Silicone guide is cast with integrity, also reducing wear over time due to the material’s durability.
