Application: Vulcanizers for Conveyor Belt Splicing

Industry: Manufacturing

Conveyor belts are used in nearly every industry. But what happens if the belt breaks? Enter Shaw-Almex, out of Perry Sound, Ontario. They manufacture conveyor belt vulcanizing equipment for the splicing and repair of a full range of sizes and styles of conveyor belting.

While Shaw-Almex makes nichrome wire heating elements, it has incorporated EGC’s thin-film NTC Heater into its smaller applications like the Quantum Lightweight Press and MPX and MVP vulcanizers.

“In some applications, where platens can be thinned and mass reduced, energy savings can be realized”, says Tim Girard, Systems Engineering and Safety Officer. “That’s because Q-Foil heats up so fast that, when dealing with the same wattage, amperage and watt density, you literally cut the time in half. It’s great for Shaw-Almex and exceptional for our customers.”

“We did some tests on Q-Foil and made an important discovery,” said Girard. “When wire burns out, it won’t heat anymore. But, Q-Foil is different. If you develop a pockmark in Q-Foil, it continues to heat around the flaw in the carbon and that’s a big advantage.”

No hot spots and big energy savings. Pretty impressive. Now see what EGC can do for you. Just reach out to our team at 440-285-5835 or email us.
