Water on the rubber belt is the most important factor to ensuring the longevity of a Rubber Belt. Adequate water coverage is essential to both cool and lubricate your belt. To prevent damage to the belt ensure when running your shrinkage machine:
- That water is the first thing turned on and the last thing turned off.
- That the internal and external water sprays are consistent across the RB width and that none of the openings are clogged with lint
- That the Felt Dr. Blade is uniformly against the RB across the full width
- That all the water sprays are facing in the proper direction as illustrated below.
