The PFTE conveyor belt

When you say Hardick, you say PFTE conveyor belts. That is the first thing you see if you open the website of Hardick. Hardick is the market leader in the conveyor belts, especially the conveyor belts with exquisite anti stick properties. Hardick products take a leading position, they have already 100 years of experience in this field, so there is no need to doubt if we are talking about the PFTE conveyor belt.. Like we said, Hardick is the market leader in the conveyor belts with exquisite anti-stick properties. But what is a conveyor belt? What is PFTE?

The function of the PFTE conveyor belt

What is the function of this conveyor belt, for what kind of things can I use the conveyor belt? This kind of belt is the carrying medium of a belt conveyor system. This belt consists of two or more pulleys, sometimes they are also called drums. They have an endless loop of carrying medium. One or two pulleys are powered. They will move the belt and the materials. on the belt forward. The powered pulley is called the drive pulley. The unpowered pulley is called the idler pulley. Two types of industrial classes of belts do exist, these are the in general material handling (like those moving boxes along inside a factory) and the bulk material handling (like those used to transport large volumes of resources and materials that are used for agriculture, you can think about salt, sand, overburden and grain, as well as ore and other materials. Conveyors are durable and reliable components that are used in automatic distribution and they are also used in warehousing and manufacturing and production facilities. It is considered a labor saving system, it allows large volumes to move rapidly through a process and it allows companies to ship higher volumes or to receive higher volumes with smaller storage space and also with less labor expense, so that is also a great function of the PFTE conveyor belt. But PFTE, where does that stand for? PFTE stands for Polytetrafluoroethylene. This is a synthetic fluoropolymer. There are of course other conveyor belts, but you don’t need to buy another belt than the PFTE conveyor belt, because there is no need to be afraid that the PFTE conveyor belt is harmful to humans. Yes, this question has been asked recently and we have always wanted to answer that question. 

What are pro’s and properties of the PFTE conveyor belt? 

Of course we can mention the pro’s and the properties of the PFTE conveyor belt. Amongst others, these are the following:
  • Extremely low friction, 0.05
  • Slight heat capacity and heat loss
  • No bacterial growth
Next to these properties, the PFTE conveyor belt has a superior chemical resilience and is heat resistant up to 260 degrees, which is really high. Hardick conveyor belts are applied in UV-Dryers, shrink tunnels, laminators, dry ovens, glue processes and cooling tunnels. Hardick offers you the experience and the production facilities, they will translate their solutions into conveyor belts that have a very high quality.
