WCCO Belting released new belting technology for the aggregate and recycling industries.

The Direct X cleat profile is designed to directionally improve product flow control, the company says. The pocket-style pattern captures conveyed material immediately upon loading, reducing the amount of product movement on the belt cover and limiting cover wear.

The technology is for crushing, grinding, sorting, screening and piling operations. The thin design is aimed to increase conveyor capacity by capturing more material across the belt width than standard industry patterns, according to WCCO.

The nested pattern aims to make transitions quieter on the return rollers by reducing noise and vibration in the field. In addition, the cleats are molded onto the base belt to prevent cleat separation or delamination, according to the company.

The belt construction technology is made with fabric that is 206 percent higher in tear strength, 126 percent higher in tensile strength, with 64 percent better puncture resistance compared to the industry standard, according to WCCO.

“As a company dedicated to value innovation, we have been looking for the right opportunity to expand our product offerings to meet the needs of the aggregates and construction industries,” says Jean Voorhees, WCCO Belting vice president of business development. “We are proud of the Direct X technology and its ability to redefine field performance and positively impact the bottom line for end users.”
