The conveyor belt joints divided into two kinds: hot vulcanized splicing and cold vulcanizing splicing. For the cold vulcanizing splicing, it is fast and high efficiency, but only used for the emergency joint of common nylon and canvas conveyor belts. Hot splicing is a method of repair that uses both heat,time and pressure to re-splice a belt.
The belt must be cleaned and free of all oily, greasy substances before starting. As it creates the highest return to original belt strength,it is ideal for splicing, cuts or tears, holes or breakdowns between steel cords and fabric. It can be executed in dusty environments and is suitable for all types of belts with varying widths and thickness.
As the conveyor belt starts to use, it is necessary to bond two ends of the belt through splicing operation initially. Meanwhile, if the belt is worn and broken during the use, it needs to trim broken parts and produce a new jointing for splicing. A conveyor belt splice needs to make several times during the entire using life, hot Splicing is the best operation for conveyor belt jointing.
