Flexco says it will address splicing, cleaning, tracking, and belt slippage needs at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 event, held in Las Vegas, on March 10-14, 2020, in addition to discussing the future of belt conveyor technology for heavy duty applications in various industries.
The company’s booth at the event will feature a full-size conveyor, as well as interactive displays to help attendees better understand the features and benefits of Flexco product solutions, it said. Live demonstrations of conveyor rip repair and 45-degree fastener installation, using the Flexco Bolt Solid Plate Fastening system, will also take place.
Flexco will be showcasing a variety of products designed to increase efficiency and decrease downtime.
The Flexco Wash Box is designed to deliver superior cleaning efficiency in applications where the conveyor must be very clean or when head-end cleaning is not enough. Mounted on the return side of the belt, hinged doors are available on each side for easy inspection.
The Y-Type™ Secondary Cleaner (pictured) will also be highlighted on the booth this year. With standard and heavy-duty options available, the Y-Type offers multiple blade options and easy maintenance at an affordable price, according to Flexco.
And, if miners are having dust containment issues at the load zone, the company says they should stop by the Flexco booth for more information on the Flexco Enclosed Skirt System and Dual Seal Polyurethane Skirting.
At this year’s booth, Flexco also plans to introduce its new TUG™ HD® Belt Clamps, designed to secure the belt for repair, meeting the most stringent safety test standards. Available in 5.4 t and 7.3 t versions, TUG HD Belt Clamps provide even tensioning across the entire belt width for ultimate strength, according to the company. Modular components, meanwhile, allow for increased versatility and portability.
The Flex-Lifter™ Belt Lifter, 900 Series Belt Cutter, and Cordless Electric Belt Cutter round out the group of products designed for safer belt conveyor maintenance that will be highlighted on the Flexco booth this year.
