Rod securing to centre belting

 

Wide conveyor belts are often fitted with one or more center belts, the rod securing method can be completed in various ways, but there are two main methods:

1. Riveting the rod in the center:

Such rods are usually supplied rod with convexity down. Up convexity is optional. We offer the following designs:

NOS-1

The rod-center is heated & flattened for one rivet hole.

NOS-2

The rod-center is heated & flattened for two rivet holes.

Superflex®

Specially reinforced (wider)central rod-forging, flattened with two rivet holes.

Highfllex

Specially reinforced (wider & thicker) central rod-forging,flattened with two rivet holes.

Off-set

2 belt rod riveted to every other central center belt pitch.

Overlap forging

Specially forged overlapped rod ends riveted to center belt.

2. Securing the rod with a clamp:

Normally supplied with rod convexity up. The round rod lays on top of the belting. Therefore special 3TB tooth drive sprockets are needed (see chapter 8, sprockets & drive wheels). Down convexity forging can only be created to the rod ends. The WB-clip is internationally also referred to as P-clip.

P-clip

Sheet metal clamp with 1 rivet hole. Fits around rod.

WB-clip

Sheet metal with 2 rivet holes. Fits around rod.

GK-clip

Malleable cast clamp. Downward facing. Encircles rod with open base.

KS-clip

Malleable cast clamp. Fits in and under belt profile. Is crimped around rod on either side of belting.

Welded clip

2 belt rod riveted to every other central center belt pitch.

Overlap forging

U-type sheet metal clamp crimped around rod. Then top welded.

2 lip clip (Haulmweb clip)

U-type sheet metal clamp with 2 vertical lips crimped around rod.

3 lip clip

U-type sheet metal clamp with 3 vertical lips crimped around rod.

4 lip clip

U-type sheet clamp with 4 vertical lips crimped around rod.
