New from Emerson Industrial Automation comes its new System Plast 2508 and 2630 series heavy duty belts.
System Plast 2508 and 2630 series belts can be used in a variety of heavy duty applications, but their main design focus was for use in the automobile and car wash industries.
With these industries in mind another unique design was created for the installation of pusher bars.
The belt modules have mounting holes located on 50mm centers which match the pusher bar mounts. These holes are identified within the module surface pattern for easy identification and pusher bar installation with M8 bolts. Disassembly of the belt is not required for installation, removal or relocation of the pusher bar.
A unique design feature of these belts is the clip that retains the pins. Installation of the clip is simple, but more importantly, even in a very dirty application (such as a car wash installation) it is easy to remove the clip by using a screw driver and tapping lightly with a hammer. The clip can be removed or inserted from the top or bottom of the belt and is reusable. It is also positioned away from the belt edge to protect it from wear or damage.
In standard LFG material, the 2508 series has a max load capacity of 5480 lbs./ft. As well, the Heavy Duty Belt can also be manufactured in PPLG and other materials.
