Flexco added the FXC steel cord belt fastening system to its line of heavy-duty mechanical belt fastening systems.

According to Flexco, the FXC can provide a solution as a temporary splice or to pull a belt onto the conveyor system when an operation needs to reduce downtime from a damaged belt.

Although the system is designed to be a temporary solution, Flexco says users can expect full performance at normal levels to fill stockpiles and continue operations while vulcanization is scheduled.

“The FXC steel cord belt fastening system is an excellent solution for heavy-duty operations,” says Franklin Moore, product manager at Flexco. “When a belt conveyor system goes down, the FXC allows teams to get back up and running in a fraction of the time it takes to wait for a permanent solution. Additionally, the FXC allows workers to pull a belt onto the conveyor system in a more efficient manner.”

The FXC steel cord belt fastening system can be pre-spliced to belt ends ahead of a belt pull, making stringing a belt onto the system even faster.

“Overall, this system was engineered to put time and money back into the pockets of our heavy-duty customers,” Moore says.
