We also provide replacement belts for: Stock Equipment, Ramsey, Thayer, Merrick, Techweigh, Schenck, Milltronics, Harding Feeders, Siemens Weigh Feeders & Howe Richardson.

 

Flanges/Sidewalls

Most feeder belts run flat. Flanges or sidewalls are used to keep material from overflowing. Shown are some of the more common styles. All styles are available in standard and high-temp compounds.

     

 

Splices

Belt ends can be joined using mechanical fasteners or vulcanized endless. Such factors as accuracy, durability, ease of change out, spillage and price play a role in determining which style to be used.

       

 

 

Guides

To keep the belt from tracking side to side a guide, which fits into a groove in pulleys, can be hot vulcanized on the bottom of the belt.
