Derby has been providing belting solutions for the transport of all materials in the aggregate industry including sand, gravel, crushed rock, limestone and salt. Belts used in aggregate industry need to have high resistance to impact, ripping, tear and abrasion loss to convey heavy, sharp and extremely abrasive materials.
Derby belts for aggregate industry are designed to withstand the abrasion loss, wear and tear to allow longer lifetime and higher performance compared to the competitor belts.
In the most harsh applications where the belt needs to carry heavy, sharp lump sizes dropped from large drop heights, the carcass needs to be designed in a way to provide strong resistance against trapped objects that rip through the belt. The rubber cover also needs to be designed to make sure it allows maximum protection to the carcass. Derby DIN X compound endures the most severe cuts, gouges and impact applications.
