Rubber Combo Roller Chain Conveyor Belt Overview

Fluent Conveyors Rubber Combination Belts are widely used in the waste and recycling industry. The combination belting has a heavy duty frame and is a good alternative to steel belting. Fluent Rubber Combination conveyor belts are as heavy-duty as they come. These C-channel reinforced belts are the perfect mid-weight applications for processing cardboard, paper, old newspaper, plastics, shredded paper, and more.

Rubber combo belts come in 6-inch, and 9-inch pitch options up to 84” wide (optional larger with longitudinal splice). 2 Ply 220# and 3 Ply 330# belting, precision die punched wings, single flanged and sintered steel rollers, solid locking pins C-channel backing and add-on options such as cleats, upgraded chain, larger rollers and more.

The rubber combination belt consist of two chains with steel c-channel spreading between them. The c-channel are located on every other chain pitch and the rubber belt is laid over the backing bars and bolted down. Optional cleats can be added to the rubber combo belt. These cleats will be sized (2”, 3”, 4” and custom cleats) and located as dictated by the project specifications. These belts are manufactured in sections approximately 13 feet long to simplify repairs and installation.

Engineering & Manufacturing Specifications

Engineering Specs

Fluent Conveyors rubber combo belts are engineered with industry leading 3D CAD.  The manufacturing team has over 50 years of combined experience on conveyor belts and understand the most complex applications to ensure the correct belt is always used. All replacement belts are engineered closely with the production team to ensure the processes from engineering to manufacturing meets tight tolerances, QA validation and project deadlines.

Manufacturing Specs

Fluent Conveyors belts have been tested, validated and approved to meet the quality tolerances our engineering team requires. The production team has over 50 years of combined experience paired with a new technology, validated core processes and a great quality assurance process that ensures all belt specs meet approval drawings and application requirements.

Preventative Maintenance

The Fluent Conveyors rubber combo conveyor belts only require standard maintenance to guarantee a trouble free operation. These belts come pre-tensioned and run for over two days prior to shipment to ensure they fit correctly and run smoothly.

Core adjustments and maintenance:

  • Visual inspection (belt, damage, rubber damage). This inspection is important to ensure that all of the components on your conveyor will continue to function as designed.  Further protecting the other components and increasing the overall life of your machine.
  • General removal of debris (chainways are clear and rollers/chain bars are free of debris).  Keeping your conveyor clean is imperative to remove the risk of jams or potential failure.
  • Auto Chain Oilers are full and functioning.  Keeping your chain properly oiled is imperative to the function and longevity of your conveyor.  A properly oiled chain significantly reduces running friction (saving you energy) and can last more than twice as long as an under oiled chain.
  • Maintaining proper chain tension.  This should be done through periodic visual checks to ensure the chain is not loos enough to slip over teeth on the drive sprockets, but also not so tight as to add friction and resistance to the system.
  • For the first 90 days after install and start up do a daily check to make sure the belt tension is correct and the chain is wrapping nicely around the sprockets.

      Frequently Asked Questions
      • How are rubber combination conveyor belts made?

        Fluent Conveyors rubber combination conveyor belts are made from a skeleton structure with a 3 PLY rubber belt bolted over the top. The structure is made by welding C channel to the chain every other pitch on both sides. This creates a rigid structure for the rubber belt to ride on and transfers the load to the carrying rails effectively. Please contact the Fluent sales team if you have any further questions.

      • What is a rubber combo conveyor belt?
        A rubber combination conveyor belt is a belt that is made from both roller chain and rubber belting. This belt is ideal for highly abrasive environments as well as small particles. The rubber belt manages the particles and keeps them from wearing between any moving steel pieces. The rubber belt is then supported by a steel structure run between the chains allowing for high loads and good impact resistance.
      • How long will it take to deliver a replacement rubber combination conveyor belt?

        Fluent Conveyors rubber combination conveyor belts normally take 4-6 weeks plus shipping. Please contact our sales team and we can get started with you immediately.
