PLASTIC HINGED BELT CONVEYOR

Plastic Hinged Belt Conveyors feature the significant advantage of much lower wear of the belt edges at the turn-around points in angled configurations (e.g. in L- or Z- shape) when compared to conventional Corrugated Sidewall Conveyors. Plastic hinged belts require much smaller frame sizes and smaller idler diameters. This makes it a lot easier to fit them into existing space limitations in the machine layout. Furthermore, the proportion between the effective width and the total width is particularly minimal. Plastic hinged belts are capable of continuously passing through any angled line layouts (Z-shape). In the frame of the conveyor, the hinged belts glide over machined polyethylene sliding rails, making them very quiet and creating little wear. Circulating side wings limit the conveying diameter while carriers enable inclines of up to 75°.

HINGES

Robust and Durable

The plastic hinges are extremely robust and will not damage highly sensitive steel parts. They are designed to create a tight belt surface with extremely small gaps of only a few tenths of a millimeter.

The hinge elements are very durable around water, suds, oils and many other organic and inorganic solvents including chemicals. They are food grade approved and can thus be used for pharmaceutical and food processing.

 

OPTIONS

Hinge Elements, Surface and Temperature

We deliver Plastic Hinged Belt Conveyors with 3/4”; 1”; 1-1/2”; 2” and 3” hinge widths. The hinge elements are available in acetal, PE or PP material with plastic crossbars made of PP or polyamide. We achieve higher strength from our belt by using metal crossbars. The side walls are made of polystyrene or PP. Carriers are either injection molded into the hinge itself or they are made of PE. All plastic hinges are available with a textured surface or perforated (open surface 5 to 50% with slot- or square-/ round holes).

Operational temperature: -20° to 100°C. The hinge belts are driven by a direct polygon engagement or via sprocket wheels that interlink with the belt’s lateral chains.
