Heavy Duty Integrally Molded Conveyor Belts
Synthetic base belt that offers cleat pattern heights from 1/2” to 1-1/4”. Ideal for steep inclines & moving abrasive material such as sand, gravel, rock and asphalt.
Integrally Molded Conveyor Belts Overview
Fluent Conveyors heavy duty belts are manufactured to handle high impact and abrasive loads both horizontally and vertically. Common materials being conveyed include sand, stone, gravel, recycled asphalt product (RAP) and other heavy materials.
These belts are designed with unique cleat patters that secure loose materials to the belt base and reduce roll back or slippage. The patters overlap in a way to allow minimal vibration on the return side of the conveyor.
Key differences include:
- Cleats, cover, fabric, and splice are manufactured in a single holistic process
- Proven and advanced splicing to eliminate belt related issues and allow for longevity and strength.
- Superior resistance to gouging, puncturing and impact created by high rubber compounds used in both the base belts and cleats.
- Belt top cover and cleats are cured together which prevents separation which can take place when uncured cleats are vulcanized to a cured belt cover.
Integrally molded conveyor belts are designed to handle the worlds most extreme applications. The core base belt construction has a few different options: 2 ply 220, 3 ply 240, 3 ply 330 and 2 ply 400. Additionally there are multiple different options to leverage for the cover gauge and compound.
These heavy duty belts are manufactured from an industrial grade synthetic fabric with high-grade MOR (some resistance to moderately oily materials and organic chemicals) covers and cleats.
Splices are one of the most important things to consider when buying a new conveyor belt. All applications and materials have characteristics that can cause long term damage to belting and splices.
For integrally molded belts we recommend a few different splices depending on the material. For heavy duty applications which have smaller pieces its best to utilize vulcanized endless splices or super screw fasteners. This will give the belting a smooth transition from end to end and alleviate the risk of material building up within the spliced area (which can cause a weak point).
You can also use a mechanical splice from Flexco to simplify the installation process. We recommend using a stainless steel Flexco 550 bolt hinged fastener. This type of splice can be pre-installed from our team on both ends of the belt making the install process very easy.
Our main partner for this specialized belting (grade 1, high abrasive high tensile rubber) has been manufacturing Asphalt Milling machine conveyor belts since 1975.
All our offered replacement belts are specified to meet or exceed the original manufacturer belt specifications to ensure your investments are protected. We offer both the lower impact belt and the incline conveyor belt on these machines.

FLUENT CONVEYOR DESIGN GUIDELINES
Fluent Conveyors Roller Chain Series Conveyors are designed with cutting edge software to be ahead of the curve. Giving you an edge above the rest. All machinery is validated using premium 3D CAD software and manufactured to industry leading tolerances and standards. After completion of a design, the engineering team releases to quality assurance, allowing secondary engineers to validate critical dimensions, calculations and manufacturability. After initial and secondary engineering approvals, projects are released to purchasing and the manufacturing facility by the lead manufacturing engineer. Our experts only approve the highest caliber work to ensure you’re working with nothing but the best.
FLUENT CONVEYOR MANUFACTURING GUIDELINES
Fluent Conveyors Roller Chain Series conveyors are made in innovative facilities to equip you to level up your business. With all the industry leading equipment and processes, Fluent Conveyors production team has over 100 years of combined experience paired with a facility of more than 85,000 square feet. The core facility has a paint booth, 40,000 square feet of dedicated assembly, 6 – welding stations, CNC fabrication equipment, 10 – overhead cranes and more. Parts are cut/machined on CNC Routed machines and bent on CNC Brakes for the best in industry tolerances. Every weld is tacked and re-measured for accuracy then completed by the staff of certified welders. Once manufactured, every conveyor passes through a 3-step finishing process starting with sandblasting and ending with high grade paint. Ensuring you’re working with smart, flawless machinery.
CONVEYOR TESTING OVERVIEW
All conveyors are delivered to you ready for work. Assembled and released to a detailed quality assurance checklist to make sure your machinery can hit the ground running. This includes key validations such as; weld examination, sub-assembly QC, 10 hours of tested run time, head shaft height validation, frame levelness, frame width validation, overall height/length, belt speed, belt tracking, belt and conveyor alignment, electrical requirements, incline and nose over angle verification and all other major specifications. Making sure your machinery is set up for long term success.
We ship the smartest way possible, to make your job easy. Fluent Conveyors Product shipments are carefully planned in CAD software to be loaded in an organized, space saving, and safe manner ensuring that all products arrive on-site the same as when they left our facility. Loose items are boxed and marked, assembled parts and components tightened to endure the rigors of freight and shipping. We’re here to make sure every step of the process is seamless.
