Conveyor Belt Solutions
V belts are designed as a continuous loop that links two or more rotating shafts most often from a motor to a pulley. The V shape helps to keep the belt securely in the pulley. V belts can be manufactured from various types of materials including rubber, synthetic rubber stocks and even kevlar.
Timing belts have been used in manufacturing processes since the 1940s. They are used to help synchronize the opening and closing of an engine’s valves for smooth and coordinated operation.
Conveyor Belting Materials
Conveyor belting materials vary greatly depending on the conveyor systems and industries they serve. In addition to rubber, conveyor belts can be manufactured in polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride and fabric such as polyester or nylon.
In some industries, conveyor belts must also be flame resistant and able to withstand high temperatures per government or industry standards. Similarly, specific materials are used to manufacture conveyor belts used in pharmaceutical and food processing operations.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the different types of conveyor belts?
Because of all the different applications conveyor belts are used for, there are also many different styles of belts. Capital City Conveyor and Supply offers a full line of drive belts, including V belts and timing belts.
From what materials are conveyor belts made?
Conveyor belts are made from various materials including rubber and urethane, as well as PVC, steel polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride and fabric such as polyester or nylon.
How long can a conveyor belt last?
The life of a conveyor belt depends on how the conveyor system was designed and installed and how intensely the system is used.
If the conveyor belt is in continuous use or under tremendous pressure due to weight or volume, it may not last very long.
Indeed, if the conveyor belt doesn’t last at least three years, there may be something wrong with the conveyor system or the wrong belt is being used.
Some conveyor belts can last up to 10 years. Again, it depends on how hard the conveyor belt has to work and how efficiently the overall conveyor system operates.
When should I replace my conveyor belt?
First look for any signs of a damaged belt. Conduct a thorough inspection of the conveyor system and the conveyor belt. Check for loose strings or frays.
Also check for any cracking throughout the body of the conveyor belt or along its edges. If there are signs of significant wear, you should replace the conveyor belt.
