What is BRUbelt?
Whether for material handling equipment, elevators or conveyors – the BRUbelt is defined by maximum dynamic strength and is available in customized designs.
BRUbelt is the combination of high strength steel strands and high tech polymers that allows the creation of the innovative drive systems in the smallest possible space.
Compared to conventional steel cables, BRUbelt offers higher load-bearing capacity with a reduced metallic cross-section. BRUbelts cover a very wide range of different applications. As an alternative to chains and wire rope hoist systems, they offer the user a maintenance-free, cost and space saving solution for the respective area of application.
Advantages of the design
(In comparison between wire ropes and chains with BRUbelt).
Increased flexibility and traction
Improved running properties
Smaller pulley diameters
Lower belt elongation under load
High running quality about vibration and noise
High resistance to external influences
(e.g. weathering, abrasion, UV radiation)
High tensile strength
Extreme bending and flexural fatigue strength
Smaller pulley and idler diameters
High wear resistance
Halogen and silicone free
BRUbelt end fasteners
With the Brubelt end connector there is no reduction of the minimum breaking load. In addition, customized end fasteners are created upon request.
The flat belts made of steel cords sheathed with thermoplastic polyurethane do not require lubrication, but run grease-free on the pulleys, which significantly reduces maintenance costs.
Compared to wire ropes, BRUbelt flat belts cause considerably less wear on belts, idler pulleys and drive pulleys, which also has a positive effect on maintenance costs.
The belt itself has three times the service life of classic steel cables. With a wrap drive, the drive motor can be mounted close to the ground and is therefore easily accessible. The BRUbelt is also used as a traction drive, thanks to the frictional properties of the coating, the BRUbelt can be used with the smallest possible drive pulleys.
