Belt Technologies named "World's Greatest." View our segment!

We’re often busy extolling the many benefits of metal belts. If you are familiar with Belt Technologies, you probably already know that metal belts are:

But it’s Earth Month, which means one question is top of mind: are PureSteel® belts environmentally friendly? In this age of increased environmental awareness and corporate sustainability initiatives, manufacturers are increasingly looking to incorporate ecologically conscious materials into their production processes. The good news is our PureSteel® metal belts provide environmentally friendly, sustainable options that outperform alternative materials. That’s what we consider a win-win!

Durability for a Longer Lifespan

Waste disposal has a direct impact on the health of our planet, which is why the durability of PureSteel® belts gives them a distinct ecological advantage. They can withstand temperature extremes, vacuum conditions and hostile, caustic environments.

Unlike polyester, nylon or cotton belts with rubber or plastic covers, steel belts are not susceptible to long-term wear and tear like stretching or warping. Thanks to their extended lifespan, our steel belts require less frequent replacement, contributing to a significant reduction in waste over time.

Recyclability: Steel Belts Close the Loop

Once they do finally reach the end of their lifespan, our PureSteel® belts are easily recyclable, further reducing waste in landfills, and promote a circular economy as they are transformed into new products.

Low Friction Saves Energy

PureSteel® provides low friction operation that requires less energy to run smoothly and efficiently. Over its lifetime, a PureSteel® belt can help a manufacturer realize significant reduction in energy consumption. That’s good for both the planet and the bottom line!

PureSteel® Stands Up to the Heat

Our steel belts can withstand extreme temperatures without deformation or degradation. This makes them ideal for conveying hot materials, which is why you’ll find them used in foundries, glass manufacturing and food processing applications. This attribute reduces the need for energy-intensive cooling systems, contributing further toward efficiency and sustainability.

Many of the attributes of PureSteel® belts that make them ideal in terms of reliability, precision and efficiency also contribute to making them the ecologically responsible choice. As always, we welcome you to reach out to us for questions about how Belt Technologies can help you meet your production challenges and sustainability goals.
