PlateGrip Belt Fasteners
The Traditional Plategrip teeth overlap the edges of the plates and provide extra holding power on thin belts. Passing smoothly over conveyor pulleys, Plategrip fasteners allow natural troughing of belts and smooth operation on both sides, through trippers and scrapers, as well as over crowned or takeup pulleys.
All buckets of solid plate fasteners have pre-assembled bolts and bottom plates that utilize our patented system, which includes the use of a special thin metal washer to clinch the bolt to the bottom plate during installation of the belt fasteners. This has proven to be superior to the use of plastic or nylon washers, which can slide along the bolt threads.
First, determine the size and quality specifications.
Belt fastener size for various combinations of belt thickness and pulley diameter.
Number of sets of fasteners required for various belt widths.
A 90° splice is generally used where pulley diameter and thickness correspond to recommendations in the chart above.
The 45° splice should be used where pulley diameters are smaller than the recommended minimum diameter. The 45° splice will reduce flexing of belts behind the fastener and has the same strength as the corresponding 90° splice.
