Application:
The Fireshield belt has excellent properties of resistance to tearing and resistance to heavy impacts. Because the carcase is thin, Fireshield can also be used with smaller pulley diameters than textile plied or steel-cord belts. Ability of Fireshild tc trough is much better than a plied conveyor belt. Fireshiled can also be joined with mechanical fasteners. Fireshield is then utilised on heavy duty conveyors where resistance to the effects of heavy impacts and resistance to the effects of heavy impacts and resistance to tearing are important characteristics, typically seen in quarrying, open cast mining and steel industries.. or in application where heave-duty and yet narrow belts are required, such as in tunnelling.

Construction:
Fireshield™ is a textile belt «straight- warp « which means with a carcass composed of one or two plies , each ply is with straight warp, protected on both top and bottom sides by weft lines in textile as shown in the drawing below cons.The straight warp is composed of thick twisted (textile cables) in polyester. This warp is inserted between two planes of weft textile mad e of thick twisted in polyamide . The warp and the weft are
connected by a small ne wire which ensures the maintenance of textile. The carcass frame thus constructed is adhered RFL and may be coated of dierent types of rubber cover, anti- abrasive
( X , Y , SH , etc … ) and other.
• for a given ply , for average tensile strength greater than 500 PIW, it is necessary to have two levels of warp , and therefore three levels of weft protecting the warp and the binding of the assembly.
• For high resistance, it is preferable to use 2 plies straight- warp , separated by an interply in rubber to facilitate splicing .
• To increase fastening resistance, tear and impact, the Fireshield™ belt can be oered in a version with carcass reinforced in weft: Fireshield™ RT

Tensile strength:
Fireshield ranges from standards of 150 PIW in 1 Ply to 1000 PIW in 2 Ply. If greater strength is required, please contact us for more information.

Belt Joining:
Fireshield™ conveyor belts are normally jointed by hot vulcanising (ref. to DEPREUX splicing procedure). It is also possible to mechanically fasten Fireshield™ belts but you should consult with our technical representative for the appropriate type of fastener.
