DiamoFlex belts are available in standard widths up to 1400 mm. Other widths are available on request.
This figure indicates the nominal tensile strength in N/mm. Other types available on request
The carcass consists of 3 plies of 100% synthetic polyester-nylon (EP) fabric, making it impervious to moisture with low elongation and high tensile strength. The plies are bonded to extra-thick interply layers of tough, resilient rubber for maximum impact resistance
Elongation at break in warp
Elongation at T1*
* Elongation at T1 would occur if applied stress is equivalent to 10% of the nominal tensile strength.
DiamoFlex is available in all DIAMOND cover qualities
Normal quality DA, DS, DE Abrasion resistant
Special quality HA, HS, HE Heat resistant
Special quality OR1, OR2 Oil resistant
Pulley diameters are determined by carcass thickness and tensile strength.
To determine the total belt thickness add the sum of the cover thickness to the carcass thickness
One of the main advantages of the DiamoFlex conveyor belt is “sandwich” construction of the carcass, resulting in higher energy absorption capability and greater impact resistance than regular four or five-ply belts of the same tensile strength.
This feature is especially advantageous at the loading point as coarse material impacts the belt from great height.
In order to illustrate the high impact resistance of a DiamoFlex, here is a test under simulated service conditions to compare with a four or five-ply conveyor belting of the same tensile strength.
A 10 kg weight falls from a height of 2.5 m onto a
pre-stretched length of belting. The belting is supported by an idler on the spot where the weight drops onto the belt. After each impact, the remaining tensile strength in the belt is measured as a percentage of the original tensile strength.
