a Sustainable Future
More with less
Historically, conveyor belts have been manufactured using two or more plies of fabric that are adhered to each other using inner layers of rubber. When additional rip, tear and impact resistance was required for a more demanding bulk material handling application, the obvious answer seemed to be fitting a belt with even more plies with even thicker covers. Which was proved to be very rarely the best solution.
The best solution is to fit belts that are specifically engineered for the purpose, which is the philosophy that Fenner Dunlop’s X Series is based on. The X Series is comprised of unique, single unit (dual unit in some circumstances) carcasses weaved and treated at our state-of-the-art weaving facility in Lavonia, Georgia. Here we have total control of the weaving process, which ensures the integrity and quality of the belt vs. the common practice of purchasing standard belt weaves in the textile commodity marketplace – which are predominantly manufactured overseas.
X Series offers great sustainability benefits.
We're looking to maintain sources of raw material for the future where ever possible using bio-based materials and also using recycled materials in the product without detriment to durability.
