Specialty Belts

Endless - Vulcanized

A hot-vulcanized splice is stronger and more sanitary than a mechanical (laced) joint. Endless splicing eliminates fastener pull out and tearing of the belt. Ideal for food processing industries and where metal lacing could possibly mar the product.

Finger Splice

A proven heavy-duty splice for thermoplastic belting utilizing polyurethane as the bonding agent. Lap area is the same thickness as the belt and uniformly smooth. H.D. urethane finger splice available for PVC and urethane belts over 200 PIW.

Endless - Prepared

Belts are supplied with laps already prepared to desired length but not vulcanized, enabling customer to splice endless on the system. Hot or cold cements with instructions are available.

Multiple Finger Splice

Similar to the single Finger Splice. Staggered die cut fingers are vulcanized together to create a strong, extremely flexible splice.

Lacing - Standard

Types: Alligator, Clipper, Flexco, Minet and others. Mechanical fastener joints with hinge pins provide an easy, quick and secure method of joining belt ends. Avoid lacing problems by utilizing our factory lacing experts.

Thermoplastic Soft Splice

This custom splice incorporates vulcanized hidden lacing that derives extra strength from square-cut interlocking fingers. Two flexible connecting pins secure the joint and produce a very consistent thickness at the seam. Soft Splices are applied to thermoplastic PVC and PU material.

Spiral Lace

Ideal non-metallic mechanical splice for small-pulley, low-profile applications. Unique hinge design allows use on pulleys and nose bars as small as 5/8″ diameter and as thick as 3/16″. Resists corrosion and heat. Lace is installed in factory by insertion between belt plies.

Covered (Hidden) Lace

Lacing is hidden by the cover of the belt to allow the ease of installation provided by a mechanical splice with the smooth operation of an endless belt. Product is protected from marring from the mechanical splice area. Splice can be covered with rubber or abrasion-resistant urethane. If the belt is to be cleaned by a scraper, a hidden top splice is effective. When lacing is completely hidden by top and bottom covers, both the product and the conveyor are protected.

Overlap Lace

Top cover of belt is skived back and mechanical fastener installed. The over-lap is spliced back over the splice area, providing a smooth conveying surface. Product being conveyed is protected from marring by the fastener. Flap must be glued down at installation.

Recessed Lace

Mechanical splice area of belt is recessed below the level of the belt cover. The recessed lace keeps the product being conveyed from coming in contact with the lacing.

Plastic Rivet Fasteners

Come in white and black, non-metallic compounds for a variety of conveying situations. Fasteners feature beveled edges and counter-sunk pockets in bottom of fastener to protect rivets. Fasteners are either installed by the factory or in the field with special tools.

Longitudinal Splicing

For extra-wide belt requirements, belts can be made endless, V-Guided, and/or flanged. Any width is attainable by using multiple splices. Longitudinal splices can be made in a variety of compounds, including woven PVC, thermoplastic, roughtops, urethane covered, and black rubber in all thicknesses.

Sizing Belts

Holes of various diameters can be punched in the belt to allow items below a certain size to fall through. These kinds of belts are common in the agricultural industry where they are used to size fruits and vegetables.

Solid Waste Disposal Belts

We offer a wide variety of belts for this growing industry. Popular items include flanged and cleated belts for sorting lines and incline conveying from the main tipping floor. This is a truly demanding application requiring high-quality construction.

Trencher Belt

A very popular replacement item also known as a ditcher belt. This combination of cleats and tracking guide is universally used on ditch-digging and road construction equipment. Cleats and guides are hot molded to heavy duty belting for rugged severe service.

Roofers Belt

Every large roofing contractor has one or more portable conveyors which they haul to the new building job site and use to convey roofing materials — both bulk and bagged — up steep inclines. These belts generally feature notched chevron cleats up to 2″ tall.

Scrap Metal Belt

Every scrap metal yard has one or more scrap metal conveyors. This severe application requires heavy duty belt and cleats to withstand the cutting, gouging and abrasion of the scrap metal. Rubber chevron cleats as well as rubber or urethane cross cleats are recommended.

Die Stamping Belts

High quality belts for this brutal application. Urethane cover of belt is repeatedly cut into by the die cutter. The special construction “heals” itself, increasing the life of the belt.

Exciter/Activator Belts

Also known as “ripple belt” pads, these pads can be made any length, thickness and width required. As the belt and pads travel underneath the carrier idlers, the pads contact the rollers and drive them, propelling a unit load forward. Available in rubber or in low durometer urethane.

Urethane Cleated Belts for Small Pulleys and Nose Bars

Fabricated belt for applications requiring a cleated belt that must operate on very small pulleys. Urethane belts and cleats are resistant to abrasion. Cleats are welded into the belt to ensure superior adhesion.

Cold Planer (Road Scalper) Belts

Cold planer belts are used on large portable roto-plane equipment used to remove old roadbed pavement. The belts carry the material to waiting trucks. Belts feature rubber belting with hot molded chevrons on close centers for high-volume conveying.

Cleated White Food Belt

We offer the widest variety and highest quality cleated white food belting available in the industry. Each cleat is hand crafted to a smooth finish leaving no place for bacteria or waste particles to collect. Fabrication materials are acceptable for use in FDA applications.

APC V-Guided Belt

Popular replacement belt for APC accumulation conveyors. The V-guide is recessed one ply into the carcass to improve the guide’s ability to withstand lateral pressures. Available from stock in: smooth rubber covers, PVC covers, and pebbletop and roughtop textures.

Wide Belt Sander Belts

We offer a variety of belts for wide belt sanding machines for the lumber industry. Both smooth and impression surface belts are available for these demanding applications. Popular covers are smooth, roughtop and diamond top. Many styles also available.
