Flame Retardant Conveyor Belts

Compliant with EN 14973 and EN 12882

Continental has developed fabric and steel cord conveyor belts that meet the extremely stringent requirements set out in EN 12882 and EN 14973. We are able to draw upon our many years of experience in the field of fire safety to offer our customers conveyor belts that have been certified by an external test institute.

Flame retardent conveyor belts

UTS conveyor belts

For use underground in compliance with the electrical and fire safety requirements set out in EN 14973.

Requirements set out in EN 14973

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

Standard range

Our flame-resistant conveyor belts with EP inlays for belt widths of between 650 and 1800 mm and with steel cord tensile members for belt widths of between 650 and 2600 mm are available in a range of belt strengths.

Compliance with the safety requirements set out in EN 14973, classes A and B2, has been verified for this belt design by an external test institute. If an order is placed, the certificate awarded can be made available.

Special versions

Other fire classes, belt designs and special physical characteristics (e.g. abrasion resistance) can be provided on request.

Splicing with appropriate, top-quality materials

To splice conveyor belts with fireproof covers, we recommend that only Continental splicing materials be used. This then guarantees optimal splice strength and service life.

Example applications for UTS conveyor belts used underground

  • Tunnels
  • Mining

Splicing with appropriate, top-quality materials

To splice conveyor belts with fireproof covers, we recommend that only Continental splicing materials be used. This then guarantees optimal 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 plants
