Conveyors remain the most effective method of on-site cargo transportation but their reliability is a critical factor in both productivity and cost management. Making repairs to belts and having to replace them more frequently than should be necessary due to wear and damage involves an enormous cost – both in terms of visible (invoiced) cost and the ‘invisible’ cost of lost productivity. At Fenner Dunlop, our whole ethos is to manufacture and supply belts that will provide the maximum operational life and significantly reduce the amount of money that our customers spend each year on conveyor belts. It is a philosophy that makes us very different from our competitors.
Conveyor belts have to cope with materials that can wear belt surfaces very quickly through their abrasive action. There are also cargos that can seriously damage the very structure of a belt in other ways such as the distortion caused by oil in products such as biomass and grain. Yet another cause for concern is the fact that a belt can be destroyed by foreign objects hidden in the cargo becoming trapped. Fortunately, at Fenner Dunlop, we supply a superb range of belt types and cover grades that have been engineered not only to meet these challenges but also to exceed all expectations.
Plylok Supreme (PSR) is our premium plied belting that offers better impact and tear resistance versus competitive plied belting. Our warp/longitudinal yarns withstand sharp object impacts and impingement from trapped materials without fracturing. Our weft/transverse yarns give superior load support and fastener retention. Pylok Supreme (PSR) has superior adhesion values for heavy-duty applications.
