The Ripstop range encompasses several options enabling a tailor-made protection. Thus, making it safe against impact and punctures. Ripstop belts are based on steel carcass.
Ripstop fabrics are woven fabrics, often made of nylon. Using a special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. During weaving, reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern.
Ripstop belts are EP multiply belts. Equipped with special and highly flexible transversal steel reinforcement cords in the top cover. It provides superior resistance against cuts and tears. Ripstop can be installed and joined the same as traditional EP textile belts. Because of its particular construction, ripstop shows its best performances in the handling of heavy sized materials, especially when the drop height is considerable.
Special features of MES Ripstop belt are:
- EP carcass construction
- Compatible with standard textile belts
- Superior resistance against cuts, impacts & tears
- Same elastic characteristics and trough ability of textile belts
Outstanding tear resistance and improved distribution of shocks and thus higher carcass protection
Ripstop serves as support in making products that are used outdoors. For example, sailing, tents, sleeping bags, flags and banners. It also reinforces fabric in products or clothes made to be worn in extreme durability or extreme conditions like firefighting clothing.
Ripstop belt has applications as follows:
- Open-pit and underground mining
- Lignite and hard rock mining
- Cement industry
- Chemical industry and fertilisers
- Grain and sugar industries
- Mineral processing plants
- Paper and wood industries
- Port operations
- Power and heating plants
- Quarries, sand and gravel industries
- Recycling industry
- Steel industry
Ripstop Belt combines the convenience of a textile belt with the strength of steel. The multi-ply carcass structure combined with a super high elastic steel cross reinforcement on top of the belt carcass provides the highest impact protection.
Ripstop is specially designed for belts that handle large raw materials and get damaged by impact such as under ROM bin belts , Feeders, plant feed belts
