When belts are used in places not easily accessible, it is important that fire risks are eliminated whenever possible.
Bridgestone offers flame-resistant belt depending on customer’s operational conditions.
Oil contaminated materials cause ordinary rubber covers to swell and peel off. This swelling can cause a complete breakdown of the conveyor system as the swollen belt prevents it from passing over idlers and around pulleys. 3 types of oil resistant belts are available for transporting oil-drenched metal machining chips, oily sheet metal, foodstuff such as bulk beans and culls, and processed meats and fish.
