The cooling belt performs several functions in the Carrierless Membrane System. First and foremost, it cools the base film while hot coating is being applied. It is also the reference surface from which the coating thickness is based on. The cooling belt also fully supports and transports the membrane thus eliminating tension during the coating application process.
Unlike other industry available cooling belts, the Reichel & Drews cooling belt is specifically designed to work in collaboration with the Coating Modules to produce high quality Carrierless waterproofing membranes.
The cooling belt drum provides constant and appropriate tension to the stainless-steel belt. As well, once set the drum automatically adjusts over the life of the stainless-steel belt providing years of maintenance-free service.
