PVC is one of the workhorses of conveyor belts, suitable for a wide range of materials handling applications. It is an economical solution for general purpose, popular in warehouses and factories, and any application where strict heigene (e.g. food handling) is not required.
Twin-ply PVC is suitable for non-sharp loads of up to 10kg/m at normal temperatures, with 3-ply able to take higher loads
It comes in a range of configurations, either glued/welded into an endless belt, or looped using metal fasteners, and can include flights, side-walls, tracking guides, and low-friction backings.
Versions include anti-static belts for carrying electronic components, or conductor-free for applications such as X-ray machines.
