FLEXCO BOLT STYLE LACING

FLEXCO BOLT STYLE LACING

Bolt Style fasteners are designed for quick in-shop or on-site installation with hand tools and/or power tools. Nuts and bolts are recessed in fastener plates for a smooth profile. Plates are specially coined to avoid hang-up. Fasteners are available in a range of sizes to work with many belt styles and thicknesses.

Flexco Bolt Hinged fasteners are designed for use in construction equipment, road machinery and other applications which involve smaller pulleys and for quickly extending belts in underground coal, salt and potash mines, as well as stocking and stockpiling belts.

 

Flexco Bolt Solid Plate fasteners are designed for permanent butt splices on heavy duty conveyor and elevator belts. Commonly used in handling such highly abrasive materials as sand, gravel and crushed stone,as well as grain, coal, cement and salt.

Installation is easy using either hand tools or power tools. Holes are punched in belt quickly and accurately with a templet and boring tool or punch. Nuts and bolts are then installed and tightened using a special wrench. Once all the nuts are secured, the bolts are broken off using a bolt breaker. Special tape and fillers are used to help seal the joint against silting. Both styles get their strength from compression and both allow natural troughing.

HOW TO SPECIFY THE CORRECT LACING

  • Determine your belt tension.
    Most conveyor belting has a mechanical fastener rating. The fastener sizes listed in the chart below are for use on belts not in excess of the ratings shown. Care should be taken to not operate the belting or fasteners beyond their recommended ratings.
  • Measure your belt thickness.
    If the fasteners are to be countersunk, measure the belt thickness after the belt cover has been removed. Choose a fastener size that corresponds to your belt thickness from the chart below.
  • Measure the diameter of the smallest pulley.
    For tail or take-up pulleys of the “wing”,self cleaning type, add 25% to the diameters shown in the chart below. Only consider pulleys over which the belt makes at least a 90 degree wrap.
  • Identify the correct lacing:
    Find the fastener size that best fits your specifications in the chart below.
