There are many different demands placed on the conveyor belts used within salt mines. Although safety is, of course, the top priority, the need for economy is also a fact of life. In order to provide the longest and therefore the most economical lifetime, the belts must have the structural strength to resist impact and longitudinal tears caused by foreign objects while at the same time being able to withstand the damaging effects caused by the acidic moisture and other harmful chemicals found in salt mines. Fenner solid woven PVC belts are specially designed and engineered to handle all of these demands and more. For example, unlike our competitors, our belts are produced using a unique dipping/impregnation process that allows the PVC to penetrate into the very heart of the belt. This ensures optimum fire resistance while also protecting the carcass from oils, acidic moisture, and chemicals. What also sets our belts apart from the rest is the uniquely engineered carcass that possesses a dynamic and static mechanical fastener strength far superior to any other manufacturer. This is particularly important when there is a frequent need to extend or retreat the conveyor system. At the same time, Fenner solid woven PVC belts also have an unrivaled resistance to impact, longitudinal tears and belt edge wear together with excellent cleaning properties. Although there are many different manufacturers of solid woven belting, when it comes to the economy, reliability, performance, and safety, Fenner belts are world-beaters.
