DUNLOP ULTRA X
DUNLOP ULTRA X :SUPER-TOUGH, SUPERB ECONOMY
Even the strongest, heaviest belts can be ripped, torn or punctured by heavy, sharp materials or foreign objects, either falling from a height or becoming trapped. Belts can often be destroyed within a matter of weeks or months.
DUNLOP ULTRA X solution to this very old problem is a new and unique belt design – Dunlop Ultra X.
Ultra X is a super-strength abrasion resistant ‘breaker weft construction’ exclusively made by Dunlop Conveyor Belting. It has outstanding impact resistance and up to three times the rip resistance and five times the resistance to tearing compared to conventional multi-ply belting of the equivalent tensile strength. Despite its numerous physical and technical advantages, Ultra X is also exceptionally economical in every respect.
DUNLOP ULTRA X SPLICE STRENGTH
Ultra X is best joined using the finger splice method. This creates the strongest and most reliable joint possible by retaining up to 90% of tensile strength. This is because the step splice will always create a proportional ‘loss’ of tensile strength that is the equivalent of one ply.
DUNLOP ULTRA X TEAR RESISTANCE TESTING
The tear resistance of Ultra X measured according to the international EN ISO 505 standard significantly exceeds that of conventional multiply belts. Tests for rip and tear resistance are only made on the actual belt carcass so the top and bottom covers are always removed. This ensures that the thickness and quality of the cover do not influence the accuracy and consistency of the tests.
