Plate Link Conveyor Belts without Perforations

Plate Link Conveyor Belts without Perforations

Slats without perforations provide a continuous and smooth surface. This can be beneficial for conveying materials that require an even and uninterrupted support, preventing any protrusions or irregularities that may affect the transported items.

Plate Link Conveyor Belts with Perforations

Plate Link Conveyor Belts with Perforations

Link plate belts featuring perforated slats offer tailored advantages for specific industrial applications. These benefits include effective drainage, crucial for industries with wet processes or cleaning operations; enhanced air circulation, beneficial in drying or cooling applications; reduced overall belt weight, advantageous for portable or mobile conveyor system. Choosing between perforated and non-perforated link plate belts depends on factors such as material type, operational environment, and desired functionalities, ensuring optimal performance for diverse conveyor system needs.

Plate Link Conveyor Belts with Flights

Plate Link Conveyor Belts with Flights

Plate link conveyor belts with flights incorporate additional features known as flights, which are raised elements attached to the surface of the belt at regular intervals. Flights on the plate link conveyor belt help to contain and control the movement of materials. They prevent items from sliding or falling off the sides of the belt, especially when the conveyor is inclined. Plate link conveyor belts with flights can be designed to facilitate sorting and separation of materials. The flights help create distinct channels or sections on the belt, allowing for organized material handling.

Belts Edge Availability

Plate Link Conveyor Belts with Guard Edge

Plate Link Conveyor Belts with Guard Edge

Plate link conveyor belts with guard edges are designed to incorporate protective elements along the edges of the belt, often referred to as guard edges. The guard edges prevent materials from spilling over the sides of the conveyor belt. The design and dimensions of the guard edges can be customized to suit specific application requirements. This allows for flexibility in adapting the conveyor system to different materials and operational needs.

Plate Link Conveyor Belts without Guard Edge

Plate Link Conveyor Belts without Guard Edge

Plate link conveyor belts without guard edges are designed without additional protective elements along the edges of the belt. In contrast to belts with guard edges, those without this feature have a more open and exposed edge configuration. Belts without guard edges are often simpler in design, which can result in easier maintenance and cleaning. There are fewer components to manage, making the conveyor system straightforward.
