Chevron Belting

Chevron Belting is used to convey materials at angles that are too steep for smooth surface belts. The profile on these cleated belts make increased angles of inclination possible, preventing conveyed material from falling backwards on the conveyor.

Depending on material requirements, smooth surface belts have a maximum conveying angle of inclination of approximately 18º. When steeper angles of inclination are required, cleated belts make this possible and, depending on material, angles of 30º to 40º may be achieved.

Fabric Carcass
The carcass consists of multiple plies of synthetic fabric made from polyester warp yarns and nylon weft yarns. This combination allows the belt to be impervious to moisture and to have low elongation. The carcass skims are manufactured with premium rubber in order to maximize impact resistance.

CHEVRON and HIGH CHEVRON conveyor belting have rubber profiles that are integrally vulcanized with the top cover of the belt. These profiles are composed of a highly abrasion resistant and elastic rubber compound.

The CHEVRON profiles are 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch high and are used for those applications where the material size is less than 1-1/4 inch in diameter.

HIGH CHEVRON profiles are used where material size is less than 3 inches in diameter. These profiles are 1 inch and 1-1/4 inch high. These profiles are manufactured so that there is no need for special idlers.

Typical Applications
Indications for the slope angle:

  • Up to 30º for slightly rolling materials, such as coal or gravel
  • Up to 40º for sticky materials, such as bauxite or wet sand
  • 25º up to 35º for packages, bags or bales

Our line of cleated belts are available in standard widths from 24 inches up to and including 72 inches, depending on profile.
