Wire link Belt with Roller Edges

Type: OB-RK

The OB-KK  is the version with end edges. The sides of the belt are generally formed by 2 or more rows of plates. The links and plates are mounted on the crossbar which is fitted on both sides with a welded washer.

The OB-HK is the version with chains on the sides. The sides of the belt are formed by a hollow bolt chain. The wire links and the chains are mounted on the crossbar.  The chains are held in place by the rings on the outside of the belt.  If the ends of the crossbar are tapered, the chain is secured on the inside by this tapering.

The OB-RK is the version with roller edges. The sides of the belt are formed by 2 rows of plates with a roller in between. The links, the plates and the rollers are mounted on the cross bar which is fitted with a welded ring on both sides.

OB Wire link Belts can be used at transport speeds of less than 1 mtr/min to 30 mtr/min. This depends on the process situation and the intended tool life. The strength of the belt and to a certain extent the resistance to wear is determined by the material, the number of plates, and, if present, the chain on the side. Full plates are mounted in the belt approx. every 150 – 500 mm. The belt support is normally placed below the plate rows.  The belts can also be fitted with plates with an extra wear layer at the bottom side.

OB Wire link Belts are used in production processes with temperatures from -196ºC to +600ºC.

OB Wire link Belts are made up of thin round rods with a ring shape on both sides with which they are hinged to each other via a pin. This way a thin single-layer belt is created with the following advantages:

- No product can settle in difficult-to-access areas, or hollow spaces inside the belt.

- The weight of the mat can remain relatively low.

- Process fluids and gases can easily pass through the belt.

- The belt is easy to clean.

- The belt is positively driven by sprockets, so no slip occurs and relatively small drive wheels can be used. This contributes to a  perfect belt without steering problems.

- The belt is easy to repair.
