General Belt Overview

Fluent Conveyors Hinged Steel Belts are a great solution for medium duty conveyance. These belts are best suited for low to moderate speed and made to handle repetitive impacts and abrasive materials. Our formed piano hinged design are made from mild steel with medium carbon sidebars. All rods are premium alloy steel. Fluent offers ¼” pans and 3/16” pans in both 6” pitch and 9” pitch options.

The Fluent Conveyors hinged steel belt offers options for bearings that reduce overall friction and extend chain life. The hinged steel pans can be formed with dimples (better grip), perforated (drainage) or both.

Our hinged steel belting is found in a wide variety of industries including waste, recycling, mining, stamping, automotive, manufacturing and more. .
