Sometimes, smooth belts or belts with a low profiled surface are not enough to carry slippery or bulky materials up steep inclines. In these cases, cleats of varying heights and shapes (depending on the type of product), must be welded on to the belt to prevent material from falling back and to maintain the conveying capacity even at high angles of incline.
SAMPLA BELTING designed and developed a range of cleats that meet the normal incline conveying requirements.
The choice of profile, as well as the right spacing and positioning, is determined by a thorough analysis of the application.
CLEATS & GUIDES
Our profiles are of high quality, and are available in PVC, PU and Polyolefin. Square, rectangular and standard tracking guides can be fitted on both belt surfaces. Notched tracking guides allow for greater flexibility over pulleys.
Each profile has been designed to satisfy the possible working conditions. New profiles have been developed, in particular for running on small drum diameters in the food industry.
Spondaflex Side Walls
Sampla Belt Profile Spondaflex is a high capacity conveying system based on the use of sidewalls, which eliminates spillage and serves as an alternative to the traditional throughed conveyors, with the following advantages:
1. Higher conveying capacity.
2. No spillage.
3. Application on conveyors with varying inclines.
When fitted with cleats, material can be conveyed on very steep inclines. Spondaflex is available in green and white color and in various heights from approx. 1.2 to 3.2” high.
