General Belt Overview

Fluent Conveyors PVC Combination Belts are widely used in the waste and recycling industry. The combination belting is a lighter weight alternative to steel belting (and less expensive) but does not have the same structural characteristics for longevity and durability. These belts are offered in 2-ply, 3-ply and 4-ply options with 3” or 4” interlocking wings (¼” thick).

The PVC combination belt consist of two chains with steel backing bars spreading between them. The backing bars are located on every other chain pitch and the PVC belt is laid over the backing bars and bolted down. Optional cleats can be added to the PVC combo belt. These cleats will be sized (2”, 3”, 4” and custom cleats) and located as dictated by the project specifications.

** For heavy duty options we can use C-Channel every other chain pitch. We also offer impact pads to help reduce belt stress during heavy loading.

Preventative Maintenance

The Fluent PVC Combo Conveyor Belts, like all roller chain belts, require up-front adjustments and maintenance to ensure the longevity of the belt and conveyor components.

Core adjustments and maintenance:

  • Visual inspection (all chain, chain ways, belting, rollers)
  • General removal of debris
  • Maintain chain oilers
  • Make sure cleats are secure to the belting
  • Peridically look to make sure the belt splice is correctly conneect.
  • Chain tensioning
