Conveyor Belt with Guide
Our technical expertise has allowed us to recommend Industrial Conveyor Belts. Under this category, we offer our customers a wide range of Conveyor Belt with Guide. As the name suggests, Conveyor Belt with Guide plays a vital role to prevent side tracking of the conveying product which decreases the wastage and downtime of the conveyor system.These guides are applied to the bottom of conveyor belts to help in tracking the belt. They are a trapezoidal cross section (similar to V-belts) and come in different sizes. These guides are commonly thermal welded to the belt. Location of the guides is dictated by the design of the conveyor system.
Positioning the guide on the belt is important for appropriate performance. It starts with the centerline of the guide and tells us where that line is positioned on the belt: i.e. centerline of belt; 2 inches from centerline of belt, etc.These guides are also used in short, wide belts, and long, narrow belts are both good candidates for V-guides, as well as popular for turnaround the belts. These belts are used to protect the belt edges and flanges from damage if the belt tracks off. Belts with side loading or diverting may also benefit from use of guides. To identify V-guide size, measure the width at the widest point, where it attaches to the belt, and then measure the thickness.
