Wellwaij guide ropes and strips
When a lateral force is applied to a part of the conveyor belt and/or there is contamination on the drums, the belt can derail. To prevent this, the belt can be provided with a guide rope or strip which absorbs the lateral forces.
Wellwaij guide ropes and strips are available in various material types, shapes, sizes, colours, and hardnesses.
- Material type
Guide ropes can be made of PVC, PU, PE and Polyester.
The choice of the material depends on the application and belt material.
Wellwaij guide ropes are available in V- and block shape. Most of the guides can also be delivered in a notched version. The notches ensure that the guide can bend further. Therefore it will be suitable for a smaller roll diameter.
Wellwaij guide ropes are available in various sizes. The height of the guide depends on the belt type, the diameter of the drive and return roller and the back flexion of the belt.
Wellwaij guide ropes and strips are available in the following colours:
- PVC: Green, white, blue, beige and black
- PU: Blue and transparent
- PE: Transparent
- Polyester: Cream white
- Hardness (Shore-A)
Wellwaij guide ropes can be supplied in different hardnesses ranging from 25 to 95° Shore A.
