UHMW Impact Bar: A Cost-Effective Solution for Conveyor Belt Protection

Conveyor belts are essential for transporting materials in various industries, such as mining, cement, steel, and agriculture. However, conveyor belts are also subject to wear and tear due to the impact of heavy or sharp objects, such as rocks, ores, or metal scraps. This can cause damage to the belt surface, reduce its lifespan, and increase maintenance costs.

To prevent this problem, many conveyor belt systems use impact bars to absorb the shock and reduce the friction between the belt and the loading zone. Impact bar is strips of material that are placed under the belt at the transfer points, where the material drops from one conveyor to another or from a feeder to a conveyor. Impact bars act as a cushion for the belt and distribute the impact force over a larger area, thus protecting the belt from cuts, tears, and punctures.

The complete conveyor belt impact bar includes the following:

The top surface material is a UHMW-PE cap, which can reduce friction, and high elasticity rubber in the middle.  The middle is impact and cushioning rubber.

The bottom material is  T-slot Aluminum.

Lijiu company can supply the single UHMWPE cap, meanwhile can also supply the whole set according to the client’s request.
