Help keep used conveyor belt out of landfills by "repurposing" it as heavy duty construction mats!


Used conveyor belting rubber is much stronger than other rubber materials of similar thickness. Remember, this conveyor belting is designed to carry tons of sharp, pointed things like rock and ore over thousands of feet in mines that dig for things like copper, gold, and coal. In addition, to the actual aggregate it conveys, it is engineered for constant motion, extreme temperatures, etc. The used conveyor belting is rip, tear, and impact resistant. It is tough stuff!

We also often have steel cable conveyor belting which is even heavier than the rubber belting mentioned above. Instead of having multiple layers of rubber, this scrap belting has steel cables running length-wise the interior of the rubber belting. The cables are about the diameter of a pencil. This steel serves as an anchor for the belting and makes it extra durable when it is laid on the ground.



FAQ:

Q: Do you have standard sizes of used conveyor belting in stock?

A: Our inventory is always changing please call for current conveyor belt inventory sizes…lengths, widths, thicknesses. We can cut the belting to any custom length but ask for a minimum order of 25 feet long. The first cut is free and there is a small fee for every cut there after.

Q: How do you cut the conveyor belt?

A: Used conveyor belting can be cut fairly easily with sharp razor knife. The key to cutting it is technique. First, cut completely through all the plies of the rubber on one edge. Then position your blade at an angle so the blade can cut the entire thickness. With one hand cut across the width of the belt while pulling back the piece you’ve cut with your free hand. Note: If you try to score the conveyor belting a 1/16” of time or so, you’re in for a long process and one very tired arm!

Q: Who is the original manufacturer of your used conveyor belting?

A: We don’t often know the OEM, but much of our belting comes from manufacturers like Fenner Dunlop, Goodyear, Chevron, Bando, Price Rubber, Scandura, Phoenix.

Q: Where does this surplus conveyor belting come from?

A: This belting comes from different mines, quarries, and aggregate pits around the nation that mine such things as copper, coal, limestone, etc.

Q: Is any of your scrap conveyor belting in good enough condition to put back on a conveyor system?

A: Yes, we often have used belting that has enough rubber to be re-installed on a conveyor system. Please contact us for specific details about our good used conveyor belting we have in stock.

Q: Do you ever get scrap or surplus used belting in that is really only good for chipping or grinding?

A: Yes, sometimes we get belting in very poor condition. If you’re interested in used conveyor belting to be ground or chipped please contact us. Remember, the nice thing about scrap conveyor belting is that there is no metal like you find in things like used car and truck tires.

NOTE: While we call this repurposed conveyor belting, others may call it reclaimed conveyor belting. Funny, we’ve also heard it being called recycled conveyor belting. Then there are those who refer to it as scrap conveyor belting, seconded conveyor belting, junk conveyor belting...or maybe even salvaged conveyor belting! Remember, whatever “green” or sustainable phrase you want to use regarding conveyor belting, we’ve got it.
