The working life and functional capability of steel-cord conveyor belts depends more on the impact stresses than abrasion. The PHOENOTEC® reinforcement system offers active protection against damage that is caused by high impact energies and slitting by foreign bodies. The PHOENOTEC® system consists of highly elastic, high-tensile polyamide cords which are aligned at right angles to the conveyor belt's longitudinal axis.
PHOENOTEC® is vulcanized into the conveyor belt's covers (carrying or running side, or both). The pitch and diameter of the cords are established according to the respective requirements. It is particularly recommended to equip conveyor belts with PHOENOTEC® when the danger of injuries exists from great discharge heights or foreign bodies.
