Heavy Conveyor Belts

Heavy conveyor belts refer to US-style conveyor belts that are interwoven or nonwoven in construction, as opposed to plied European-style belts. Thanks to their construction, US-style conveyor belts are generally more durable (with better puncture and tear resistance) and have higher lateral rigidity than European-style belts. However, they may be somewhat less flexible and may require higher tension in order to run properly.
