Conveyor belts are articulated metal elements rod-shaped that forms the base of the conveyor belts, where industrial products are transported, on endless chains.
Tubes in stainless steel are manufactured in different sizes, diameters and thicknesses, according to the needs of the clients, the features of transport, the working environment and of the type of machinery.
Each conveyor belt uses a framework of tube in stainless steel, the wire mesh, which is used as a support for the conveyor. Tubes fitting are manufactured in 1.8×0.2 , 2.5×0.25 and 2.2×0.25mm, cut to 30mm, they are also produced with large range of diameters, from 0.4mm to 9mm.
The manufacturing process of the fitting tubes offer a lot of finish options, so that we can offer cut-to-length service with tight tolerances to +/-0.2mm and for specific applications.
Tubes fitting for conveyor belts are recommend to be in contact with products at large range of temperatures: high, average and low temperature such as freezing temperature and also to supply a safe articulated transport of the products under any work condition or pressure and atmospheric environment.
Tubes in stainless steel used for conveyor belts are usually assembled with straight rods in the same direction , whether with tubes fitting or welded finishing, to other conveyor elements.
Tubes fitting for conveyor belts perform in the various transport systems of industries.
Tubes for conveyor belts are composed of steel alloys, which composition depends on their applications in the industry. This highly depends on the working temperatures, flow and pressure conditions of all the pieces of the system, and on the working environment.
In this way, it is recommended to work with manganese steel under temperatures of 350 ºC, with galvanized steel to convey products at 180ºC, with chromium steel (AISI-502) to work under temperatures over 600ºC and, finally, with stainless steel of 18/8/2 (AISI-316)and 18/8 (AISI304) to be used as a base for products under temperatures of 800ºCTo work under high temperatures (working conditions at temperature of 1.150ºC), in specific environments and to transport specific products, tubes of conveyor belts are produced with high-performance refractory steels. We can mention here qualities 25/20 (AISI-314), 37/18 (AISI-330) and 80/20 (nickel-chromium 80-20).
