Flame retardent conveyor belts

to EN 14973 and EN 12882

ContiTech has developed fabric and steel cord conveyor belts which meet the much higher requirements of EN 12882 and EN 14973. Due to our many years of experience in the field of fire safety, we are able to offer our customers conveyor belts certified by an external test institute.

UTS conveyor belts

For use underground with electrical and fire safety requirements to EN 14973.

Requirements to EN 14973

  • Electrical conductivity
  • Drum friction test
  • Resistance to ignition
  • Determination of fire propagation


Standard range

Our flame resistant conveyor belts with EP plies for belt widths from 650 to 1800 mm and with steel cord tensile members for belt widths from 650 to 2600mm are available in various belt strengths.

For this design of belt, compliance with the safety requirements to EN 14973, classes A and B2 has been proven by an external test institute. If an order is placed, this certificate can be made available.

Special versions

Other fire classes, other versions of belt and special physical properties (e.g. resistance to abrasion) are possible on request.

 

Splicing with corresponding high-quality materials

To splice conveyor belts with fireproof cover stock, we recommend that only ContiTech splicing materials be used. This then ensures optimum splice strength and service life.

 

Example applications for UTS conveyor belts used underground

  • Tunnels
  • Mining
 

FRS conveyor belts

For general use with electrical and fire safety requirements to EN 12882.

Requirements to EN 12882

  • Electrical conductivity
  • Drum friction test
  • Resistance to ignition
  • Determination of fire propagation

 

Standard range

For this design of belt, compliance with the safety requirements to EN 12882, category 1-5A has been proven by an external test institute. If an order is placed, this certificate can be made available.

Splicing with corresponding high-quality materials

To splice conveyor belts with fireproof cover stock, we recommend that only ContiTech splicing materials be used. This then ensures optimum splice strength and service life.

 

Example applications for FRS conveyor belts

  • Coal-fired power stations
  • Biomass power stations
  • Fertilizer industry
  • Wood processing industry
  • Port operations
  • Open-cast mining
  • Waste incineration plant
