How to Measure a Wire Mesh Conveyor Belt

How to Measure a Wire Mesh Conveyor Belt

It’s not often that you need to replace a wire mesh conveyor belt, so when it comes time to order a new one, Wire-Mesh Products (WMP) can help you make it easy. Here we will share our insider “Belt 101” tips. Ready? Go ahead and grab your tape measure….

When placing an order, we will ask you about your current belt design. You can identify your belt design by finding your part number. The first letter of your part number may be a “B” (balanced), “DB” (double balanced), or “CB” (compound balanced). These are the most popular types of friction drive belts.

Measure Your Wire Conveyor Belt

Whichever wire conveyor belt design you have, start by measuring its length and width. For a balanced or double balanced weave belt, measure the spirals across the width and down the length. Next, measure the connecting rod wire diameter (distance across) followed by the spiral wire diameter. Match the decimal size in inches to the wire gauge equivalent. Last, select your special edge type (i.e., regular or special truss).

When measuring for a compound balanced weave belt, we’ll take it one step further. Follow the same instructions we just noted and then count how many rods it takes to disconnect. This is the main information you will need to place an order. Feel free to print this off to help you place your order, and note it for future orders.
