Lift Conveyor replacement brackets

Recommended Posts

I've got some missing/damaged rubber slats on my lift conveyor off the processor. 2 or 3 are missing and another 2 or 3 are coming loose.


The fitted ones are rubber and bonded to the main flat band of the conveyor belt itself. Clearly not man enough for the job. I was thinking of just using L shaped aluminium and using a dome headed bolt (coachbolt or similar) from the underside of the main belt and up through the L shape. This will mean that the  dome head of the bolt will be running on the steel bed of the conveyor housing and also over the two main rubber rollers at each end of the conveyor belt when its running.


I can't believe that this will cause any damage to the drive or the conveyor bed? 


Someone else must have either already done this or got a better plan? The only other way I can see of doing it is getting some rubber mat, same as conveyor belt, cutting a 6" long/same width of conveyor, attaching the L shape with the dome bolts to the "patch" and then bonding the patch to the main belt. This removes the issue with the bolts running on the bed or over the rollers, but the patch is on the outside of the belt as it curves over the rollers so that might come unstuck over time? Im inclined to go with the direct attach of the L to the belt?


Any experience on this anywhere?

Ah cheers. 


Clearly they have a flat bracket below the belt and sandwich the belt between the L and the flat plate. That would spread the load and resist tearing the belt I would think.


Just what I needed, thanks
