Replacement Smooth Top Slider Bed Conveyor Belts
100's of options for industrial smooth top conveyor belts for almost all industries including food grade, mining, asphalt, construction, recycling & more.
Smooth Top Replacement Conveyor Belt Overview
We offer 100's of options for replacement belts that serve a wide array of different industries and applications. Each customer has unique requirements, pulley sizes, conveyor configuration etc.
Black smooth top belts come in both light duty and heavy duty options. The determining factor for choosing the correct cover and carcass depends on several factors such as pulley size, live loads, materials, compliance, conveyor layout, belt speed, splice needs, environment and more.
If your application is requiring extreme abrasion resistance, we offer custom urethane belts that offer a wide temperature range and we have the flexibility to produce the required mold for your application. This belt offers v-guide, molded cleats, chevrons, capped edges, wear strips and more!
To make sure we can really assist you, please get as many images and pictures as you can of the current belt (top and bottom), splices, cleats and use our replacement belt guide to help.
We offer 100's of smooth top conveyor belts for 1000's of applications from mining, recycling and food to agriculture and automotive. Along with stock options, we offer customized belts with different cover thicknesses and material properties that can match what you are looking for.
Light duty top covers include rubber, nitrile, leather, silicone, butyl, Teflon, PVC and FS covers for most demanding applications. Light Duty belting with cover impressions/profiles are commonly used to prevent back sliding on incline conveyors.
When you get into the heavier duty belting you will have a wide variety of abrasion resistant, flame retardant, oil resistant and super high heat resistant belting.
We offer over 50 different types of woven carcass base belts that are used in industries ranging from pharmaceuticals to food and beverage processing lines. These belts are a great alternative for light weight belts that may need to follow regulations such as fire retardant.
Fluent also offers a wide range of skirt-board and chute lining. Each application for lining is custom and per the request of each customer.
Please note we can offer cover x bare, cover x cover, fiction x friction, cover x friction, white PU x bare and many more options!
Fluent Conveyors recommended to install a motorized belt brush from Flexco onto our conveyor to help remove debris towards the head area of our conveyor. We were a little hesitant being we have never used this on any of our tire shred applications. After our purchase we realized this has made a big difference in life of belt and labor to clean it.
Prior to this, we were replacing belts on similar conveyors every couple months. We are estimating replacing this belt every 1-2 years along with a couple new brushes. If those numbers work out, we will save over $15,000 per year.
Thank you Fluent Conveyors for taking the time to educate our team!

- How long do conveyor belts last?
This is not something that can be assumed. All belts have an expected life cycle based on thickness, width and environmental conditions. If the rubber or PVC belt was specified correctly you should see 6 months or longer before having to consider replacing.
- How long should a conveyor belt be?
Belts can be as long or as short needed to fit the frame of your conveyor. All conveyors have specific lengths, widths and thicknesses required to make sure the belt will function.
- How to adjust a belt conveyor?
If your conveyor was manufactured correctly you will have an area on your head, center or tail section of your conveyor called a “take-up”. This area will give you belt tensioning adjustment that allows you to tension the belt and make sure your belt moves in a smooth motion.
- How long to deliver replacement smooth top slider conveyor belt?
