The VICO-MP belt consists of very closely woven alternating right and left-hand wire spirals, with each spiral being crossed by three or more straight or 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-MP belts to be used in continuous ovens up to temperatures of 1150°C. Welded selvages are normally used for this type of belt. It can also be supplied with 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.
