Balanced weave wire belt

The balanced weave wire belt (WG) is a woven belt existing of left and right spirals which are twined to one another by means of undulated cross rods.

At the ends, a spiral with a cross rod is connected by means of a weld connection. Every spiral set with cross rods is therefore separately rotatable. This creates a flexible belt.

Indication of the belt:

WG 16/12,7-1,2- 1,6 – 2.4869 ==> WG longitunal pitch/lateral pitch- ø spirals – ø cross rods – materials

  • – Longitunal pitch: 3,8 up to 35 mm
  • – Lateral pitch: 2,7 up to 20 mm
  • – Spiral wire: ø 0,8 up to 3,5 mm
  • – Cross rod wire: ø 0,8 up to 5 mm
  • – Materials: all obtainable wire types in tensile strengths of 600 – 1050 N/mm2
  • – Temperature range: ambient up to approximately 1150 °C
  • – Range of the width of the belt: 15 – 6500 mm
  • – Possibility to install special product carriers
  • – Lateral chains are a possibility (take a look at Type 1000: KE)
  • – Heightened side guards are a possibility
  • – Possibility to attach cross flights

The WG belts are characterised by:

  • – Drive on the basis of friction; a large enough drive roller is necessary
  • – Preferred support: herringbone motive with a PE1000 contact surface
  • – Large passing range, from very closed to very open
  • – The spirals remain in their position due to undulated cross rods
  • – Very flexible since every set of spiral-cross rod is separate from the following set
  • – The straight belt run is guaranteed by alternated left and right spirals
  • – Tools are inflexible; not every combination of longitunal pitch / lateral pitch / spiral wire / cross rod wire is possible
  • – This is within the category ‘’woven belts’’ (types 100 / 110 / 150 / 200 / 300 / 310), together with type 200, cost technically the most favourable belt.
  • The woven belts with welded sides are familiar with many different applications. Several common applications are mentioned below:
    • – Oven belts in bread & pastry industry
    • – Belts in sterilisation tunnels for the pharmaceutical industry
    • – Belts in drying systems for the industry processing isolation material
    • – Overlay of chain-edge belts in cool- and bake oven belts and in the potato & vegetable processing industry
    • – Belts in tunnels on behalf of high temperature treatment processes such as tempering, harden, sintering, hard soldering, etc.
    • – Belts in tempering furnaces in for example the glass producing industry
