Norms and standards
Steel cord belts are used in a wide variety of applications such as mining, harbour terminals, tunnelling
projects, steel works, cement plants and power generation plants.
Steel cord belts are preferred to textile plied or solid-woven conveyor belts in the following situations:
- when the required tensile strength is high and the conveyor is narrow. The superior troughing
capabilities of steel cord belt are suited to conveyors typically found in long overland conveyor systems,
such as those between a quarry and a cement plant or steel works or tunnelling projects.
- when a very low elongation of the belt is required.
- when the life expectancy for the belt is the prime objective.
- when loading and transport conditions are compatible.
A DX/steel-cord conveyor belt is composed of:
- Steel Cables placed at a constant pitch across the width of the belt.
- A special rubber-bonding layer to the cables and to the rubber covers.
- Top and bottom rubber covers.
The manufacture of a steel cord belt requires a heavy-duty steel cord production line and an
experienced, knowledgeable product team. Depreux Steel Cord belts (DX/ST) are the result of 80 years
experience.
Depreux utilises the open type steel cord construction that allows the rubber to penetrate fully into the
cable, which is a guarantee of the longevity for the belt. This technique optimises the adhesion and
minimises corrosion to the steel cords in the case of damage to the belt.
Open steel cables also offer characteristics that enhance the impact impact absorption capability of the
belt and makes for easy transition between the troughed position of the belt to flat and vice versa.
The steel cables are protected against corrosion with special zinc plating.
The bonding layer is a key part of steel-cord belt. It has to be formulated to have:
- Good penetration in the cable
- Good adhesion with the cable
- Good adhesion with the cables, even after ageing
- Good adhesion with the cables even after the dynamic stresses of the conveyor operation
There are two major applications:
1) Fire-resistant belts for use in underground mines in compliance with the very exacting standards and
norms of the German DIN, British BS, Australian AS, Chinese MT, Russian GOST, etc.
2) Conveyor belts to be used in above ground and complying with standards and norms such as DIN,
AS, JIS as well as mechanical specifications set by individual clients. For example:
- Abrasion resistance up to 70 mm abrasion index
- Impact resistance with DIN X Covers
- Fire-resistance with DIN K Covers
- Cold resistance can be achieved down to minus 40 degrees C
- Heat resistant for handling hot materials with T1, T2 & T3 Covers
Please consult for more information.
A risk for steel-cord belts is the possibility of penetration between the cords by a sharp foreign object and
ripping along the length of the belt.
Two possibilities are available to protect the steel cord belt against such an occurence.
1) Add a textile breaker ply in the cover of the belt. The P Type textile breaker is composed of high
elongation strong yarns that are positioned in the direction of the weft as indicated in the picture. The P
Type textile breaker plies are defined by there tensile strength: P125-P160-P200-P250-P315-P400
2) Add a steel breaker ply in the cover of the belt. The HE steel breaker ply is composed of a high tensile
strength steel wire (7 times normal elongation) positioned in the direction of the weft.
The breaker plies can be inserted in the top cover only or in both top and bottom covers.
Consideration of the breaker ply design in relation to the overall performance of the conveyor belt should
be made because the higher the tensile strength of the breaker ply the greater the adverse effect on the
troughing characteristics of the conveyor belt.
