Compound Balanced Weave Belts

Compound Balanced Weave Wire Mesh Conveyor Belt for Baking Bands, Heat Treat Industry and Furnace Curtains

Compound Balanced Weave Conveyor Belt, also named Cordweave Conveyor Belt, V-shaped Conveyor Belt. When this type of wire mesh belt is used for baking cookies, it is called CB5 baking band. Cordweave Conveyor Belts are a type of woven wire conveyor belt characterized by a distinctive construction consisting of alternating left-hand and right-hand spirals connected by straight cross-rod connectors. This configuration results in a tight mesh with close nesting of spirals, making the belt ideal for conveying very small parts.

Compound balance weave belts are often used in the Heat Treat Industry for fasteners or powders as well as baking bands in the Food Industry for tortillas, cookies, and crackers.

Belt Types

Standard Cordweave Belts

Standard Cordweave Belts

The standard cordweave belts​ consists of alternating left and right hand coils with each coil interconnecting with the next by means of a number of cross wires through each coil. The introduction of added cross wires through each coil allows for the close meshing of adjacent coils in both the width and length.The transverse wires are secured through welding, side plates, or by weaving them into bent sides. In this format both coil and cross wires are of round section. As a result, cordweave belts boasts high density and excellent heat retention properties.

Cordweave Belts with Flat Wire Coil

Cordweave Belts with Flat Wire Coil

Mesh specifications can be customized to incorporate coil wires that are manufactured using flattened wire. These alternative styles are particularly advantageous for increasing surface area when handling products with small base areas. When determining the coil wire, it is crucial to verify the cross-sectional dimensions to ensure compatibility with specific application requirements.

Edge Availability

Compound Balanced Weave Belts with Welded Edge

Compound Balanced Weave Belts with Welded Edge

The standard available type of edge finish for this application is welding, facilitated by the close meshing of both the crimp and cross wire.

Compound Balanced Weave Belts with Chain Edge

Compound Balanced Weave Belts with Chain Edge

This belt utilize the fundamental mesh structure described earlier but are uniquely equipped with chain edges for secure drive and tracking. In this configuration, the edge chain serves as the driving medium, pulling the mesh through the circuit.

Side Guard Availability

To enhance conveying performance and prevent products from falling to the ground, the compound weave conveyor belt is equipped with two types of baffles designed to address this issue.

Compound Balanced Weave Belts with Metal Sheet Side Guard

Compound balance weave belts offer several advantages, making them suitable for various industrial applications. Here are some key advantages of compound balance weave belts:

  • Small Product Conveyance

The close meshing and balanced spiral design of compound balance weave belts make them ideal for conveying small and delicate products without the risk of falling through the belt.

  • Uniform Heat Transfer

These belts provide a uniform heat transfer across the entire surface due to their high density and smooth carrying surface. This is particularly beneficial in applications such as baking and heat treatment.

  • High Tensile Strength

The compound structure, with multiple spirals and cross rods per pitch, contributes to higher tensile strength compared to other types of conveyor belts. This makes them suitable for handling heavy loads.

  • Versatility in Applications

Compound balance weave belts find application in a wide range of industries, including the Heat Treat Industry for fasteners or powders, as well as baking bands in the Food Industry for products like tortillas, cookies, and crackers.

  • Durable and Long Service Life

The unique construction and high-quality materials used in compound balance weave belts contribute to their durability and long service life, even in demanding industrial environments.
