Conveyor Belts for Extreme Conditions

Whether your company surface mines or digs down deep, we know you need conveyor belting that works as hard as your crew.

Suppose you’re in an industry with extreme conditions. In that case, you can’t just get an ordinary belt—you need something heavy-duty, capable of handling various materials, and withstanding substantial wear and tear.

Let’s start by defining what we mean when we talk about extreme conditions. Extreme conditions can mean:

  • excessive heat
  • UV exposure
  • cold
  • heavy industrial environments

MIPR Corp carries various belts for the mining, construction, and recycling industries’ diverse material-handling needs. MIPR offers a range of high-temperature needs, such as Silicone, Metal Mesh, Teflon, and Kevlar. We use Viton®, and Nomex® plys under Insulglass covers to handle extreme materials like molten glass. 

The other side of the temperature spectrum is just as important to consider. Even short-lived freezing conditions can have a devastating effect on rubber conveyor belts, making stainless steel a worthwhile consideration. Our experts can help you choose between our options based on your minimum operating temperature.

MIPR can adjust our offerings based on the level of oil-resistance you may need. From medium oil resistance for woodchips and whole grains to super oil resistance for petroleum, kerosene, and diesel.

Some industries also experience high impact and deterioration from heavy, abrasive loads. MIPR’s Single-ply Straight-Warp Heavy Duty belting resists longitudinal tears and gouging from serious impacts. It also provides exceptional durability and bolt-holding capabilities.

Abrasion can also occur depending on belt speed and load size. The rate of speed, the weight of the product, and the temperature will help us determine which compound will suit your operation.

The last crucial element of extreme conditions is the coefficient of friction. You may need a belt that is either slippery or sticky. We send our clients high-tech friction belting samples to help them decide which product will work best for them. There are stainless steel, rubber, Teflon, Kevlar, and modular plastic belts for extreme conditions. They all have their place.

The team at MIPR enjoys solving problems. Our technical resources and application expertise allow us to select or customize the perfect conveyor belt for your operation.
