Continental recently added the patented Direct X conveyor belt to its line of industrial belting products with the 2022 acquisition of WCCO Belting. 

The Direct X cleat profile increases conveyor capacity by capturing more material across the belt width than standard industry patterns. Combined with the benefits of a specialized belt construction that is thinner yet stronger and more flexible in design, the product is a high value solution that reduces cover wear, increases energy savings, and improves belt life.

“The cleat profile of the Direct X provides multiple benefits for end users in aggregates and recycling, including increased durability, energy savings and material flow control,” said Jean Voorhees, head of product management, business area conveying solutions, at Continental.

The Direct X is designed to directionally improve product flow control. The pocket-style cleat pattern captures conveyed material immediately upon loading, reducing the amount of product movement on the belt cover, which limits cover wear. The nested pattern also promotes a smooth, quiet transition on the return rollers, reducing noise and vibration in the field. In addition, the cleats are integrally molded onto the base belt, meaning no cleat separation or delamination will occur.

Direct X drives energy savings using a lighter, stronger, and more flexible belt carcass. Moreover, excess cover wear is reduced when used with the Direct X product flow control pattern.
