The VICO-MB is a ‘balanced’ belt and consists of alternating right and left-hand wire spirals, connected together by pre-crimped connecting rods. This is classified according to the pitch and internal spacing of the spiral wire, the diameter of the wire and rod and the type of selvage. Appropriately sized spiral wire pitches and wire and rod diameters enable VICO-MB belts to be used in continuous ovens up to temperatures of 1150°C. The selvages of VICO-MB for high temperatures can be welded, ladder or knuckled. It can also be supplied with reinforced selvages and guard edges. The main special materials permitting these conveyor belts to work continuously at high temperatures are: 25/20 AISI 314 stainless steel, Ni-Cr 37/18, Ni-Cr 37/18 Cb, Ni-Cr 80-20, Inconel 600, Inconel 601.
