General Belt Overview

Fluent Conveyors Z Pan conveyor belts are rugged, durable, well built and very effective. This style of conveyor belt is for the dirtiest and heaviest applications out there. The z pan has belt width options from 12 inches wide up to 120 inches wide with pan thicknesses: 3/16”, ¼”, 5/16” and 3/8”, 7/16” and ½” thick. You will find this type of belting used in businesses dealing with mixed solid waste, high volumes of single stream, concrete, coal,  mining, foundries, construction and demolition and more.

Fluent Z Pan conveyor belts are almost maintenance free and extremely durable. The stability of the pans is never affected by the load. The steel pans are pulled by two chains located under the steel pans that protect the chain from the material being loaded.

Pitch Options:

  • 6 Inch Pitch
  • 9 Inch Pitch
  • 12 Inch Pitch

Depending on the application specifications, Fluent Conveyors offers a couple different types

  • Interlocking and offset wings that are welded to the pan and have a pin the connect the chain.
  • Extended inner chain bars that have welded on options that attach to the pan.
