Segmented Transfer Plate

segmentedtransferplate3-szd200x150

 

Transferring products safely from one belt to another or from belt to chute or other structure is often one of the biggest problems for material transfer operations. Segmented Transfer Plates from Flexco can help prevent product loss at the transition point, preventing potential damage to the product as well as the belt and conveyor structure. Bright yellow segments snap onto the mounting bar to accommodate belts up to 60″ (1500 mm) wide and gaps from 4″ to 10″ (100 mm to 250 mm).

 

 

 

Features and Benefits:

  • Bar Mounted Segments are easy to install and quickly release under pressure of trapped objects
  • Durable HDPE segments lock together and provide a low coefficient of friction so product slides easily across the transfer
  • Different segment lengths can be paired together to provide options for offset mounting to accommodate structure variations
  • Provides a smooth transition at the transfer point
  • The two-piece mounting bracket allows for easy mounting and removal
  • Bright yellow color makes segments easy to monitor for replacement
  • Compatible with both endless and mechanical belt splices
  • Precision molded segments ensure accurate fit of transfer in gap

Applications:

  • Package Handling
  • Airports
  • Recycling
  • Shingle Manufacturing
  • Wood Processing

Specifications:

  • Belt widths up to 60”
  • Transfer widths from 4” to 10”
  • Segments are durable HDPE

Hitch Guard

The Hitch Guard from Flexco is engineered to provide a smooth transition of product over the conveyor hitch. The Hitch Guard prevents small objects from becoming lodged in the hitch which can cause longitudinal conveyor belt tears, damage to conveyed products, and costly periods of unscheduled downtime. Designed to permit individual segments to release from the support bar, objects are quickly dislodged while remaining segments stay secured for continued operation.

Features and Benefits:

  • Prevents objects from becoming lodged in the hitch
  • Support bar and segments can be easily customized for any belt width
  • Durable UHMW segments provide for low friction and high wear
  • 3” segments are easy to install and quickly release under pressure of trapped objects
  • Compatible with mechanical and endless belt splices
  • Bright yellow color makes segments easy to monitor for replacement

Applications:

  • Package Handling

Specifications:

  • Belt widths up to 72”
  • Steel mounting bar and brackets
  • Two mounting designs offer compatibility with most systems, including those with existing Scanner Eyes

PTEZ™ Belt Trainer

 

ptez_ss-szd200x150

The PTEZ™ Belt Trainer provides Flexco yet another high-performance tracking idler at an economical price point. Applying our patented PTEZ mechanism to our unique “Pivot and Tilt” feature, the PTEZ responds and compensates immediately to belt misalignment using the tapered end roller profile to engage the training action. This ensures that the belt stays away from the structure and the material stays on the belt without the use of sensor or edge rollers. As a result, PTEZ may be used in nearly any application to provide tracking and prevent damage to the belt or structure.

 

 

 

Features and Benefits:

  • Superior Performance
    • Pivot and tilt technology provides two forces to track your belt, making it more effective than wobblers or pivot-only trainers
    • Standard urethane lagging for exceptional life over conventional rubber lagged trainers
  • Easy Ordering and Installation
    • Designed to meet instant demands for training solutions, the PTEZ is available with a short lead time
    • The simple brackets and component construction ensures a quick and easy installation
    • Installs easily on clean side of belt when the belt is cupped
  • Universal Design
    • Drops into current return roller location
    • Designed for CEMA standard structure


Applications:

  • Single-direction or reversing belts with speeds up to 1000 fpm (5 M/s)
  • For medium-duty belts up to 1600 PIW
  • Belts with edge damage or wear and belts mistracking to one or both sides
  • Wet or dry conditions
  • Underground mining, hard rock, metal mining, aggregate, and bulk material handling

Modular Impact Bed
