1, Manufactured using left and right hand spiral connected with a crimped connecting rod to create a balanced weave that is straight tracking. This weave is designated with the letter “B”.
B = balance weave designation
72 = 72 loops of wire per foot width
24 = 24 spirals connected in a foot of length
16 = gauge of wire (.062” diameter)
Balanced weave is the most common weave used in general friction driven applications, positive driven mesh, and chain driven applications. Often used for architectural mesh and safety curtains. Available any material.
2 Balance weave is an economical, general use belt for medium load applications from 40 - 1500 degrees F. It is the most commonly used wire mesh conveyor belt worldwide including many food processing applications (from draining to cooling) as well as industries ranging from ceramic, glass and metalworking. For medium temperature and load conditions, these belts are very economicaland will fit well into any company's budgets. Where a job demands small pulleys, this is the style for you. Audubon's Balance weave is an excellent choice for a transfer conveyor belt. The balance weave belt is used more widely on more applications than any other woven wire mesh conveyor belt. Glass is annealed on it, potatoes drain on it, product cools on it, vegetables are washed on it, pretzels are salted on it. The uses of a balance weave conveyor belt in a conveying application are endless. It's also commonly used in other applicatons as screen, or guards or mesh panels.
Balance weave mesh offers a variety of chocies. The mesh can be very open, or very tight (see the series buttons below to see the variations. The higher the first count of the specification, the tighter the mesh, as that number stands for the number of spirals in 12" of mesh width. Although minimum pulley diameters must be taken into account when choosing a mesh.
Balance Weave wire mesh conveyor belts install easily with simple maintenance. Damaged sections of the belt are easily replaced by the end user, which allows for less downtime.
A Balance weave's constuction is an alternating right and left hand spirals that do not interconnect with each other. They are joined by a crimped rod which holds each spiral in place. The rods connecting the spirals are can be of a larger diameter than the spiral wires, adding durability to the construction. The spiral seats on the crimped connecting rod, allowing the belt to run straight and true. The belt will not creep to either side.
All Audubon belts are tagged with installaton instructions. Splice rods are sent with belt ordered.
