Here through our FAQ page, we’ll answer some of our most frequently asked questions. Of course, if you have specific questions not covered here, you can feel free to contact us for more information by sending an email to us or using the form below. 

What are the maximum dimensions (thickness, length, and width) of Belt Technologies’ PureSteel® metal belts?

Belt Technologies can produce stainless steel belts between 0.001” to 0.035” thick. There is no limit for belt length. Width can vary anywhere between 0.040” and 35” or more, as required by customer designs. These dimensions apply to all PureSteel® belt types, including coated metal belts, perforated belts, heat sealing belts and vacuum conveyor belts.

What is the maximum number of cycles for stainless steel conveyor belts? How long should my belt last?

Our Sales Engineers have assisted our customers with many applications with belt life cycles into the millions. Understandably, PureSteelTM belts’ lifespans vary based on such factors as ratio of pulley diameter to belt thickness, stress and belt design.

What are the minimum and maximum dimensions for pulleys?

Belt Technologies can produce PureSteel® pulleys of virtually any size, as specified by customer design requirements.

What belt materials can be provided? Which belt is best for my application?

Belt Technologies can provide metal conveyor belts made from virtually any stainless steel alloy. We can also provide various surface coatings and treatments to maximize the desired traits for the belt surface, such as release properties, temperature resistance and more. Our engineers will suggest the right PureSteelTM belt for your application using industry knowledge and best practices.

Can PureSteel® belts be purchased individually?

Yes. Whether you require one belt or 100, or a complete system, Belt Technologies can produce it to your exact specifications, including attachments, surface treatments or coatings, perforation patterns and more custom factors.

What are the maximum high/low temperatures for belts?

Stainless steel has a very high resistance to extreme temperatures. The exact ranges are detailed in a chart found here. Contact our engineers to help determine the best alloy for your specific application.

 

What is the maximum torque for PureSteel® stainless steel conveyor belts?

Torque is determined by the size of the belt. A very large belt will be able to handle more torque than a small, thin belt. Contact our engineers for specific information relative to your desired product and application.

Does Belt Technologies provide MTR (material test reports) for products?

Yes, MTRs can be provided upon customer request.

Does Belt Technologies supply drive motors and other components?

Yes, Belt Technologies can provide drive motors as part of a PureSteel® stainless steel conveyor belt system or replacement drive motors for existing stainless steel conveyor belt systems. Other components such as specialized tracking pulleys and controls can also be specified by our Sales Engineers.
