Conveyor connecting pins offer longer life

Supplier News

TWO new connecting pins for Clipper wire hook belt fasteners from Flexco feature an advanced nylon coating test-proven to provide ten times greater abrasion resistance than conventional nylon covered pins.

Available through Belle Banne Flexco , the new Clipper Duralink and DuraStainless connecting pins offer extended service life in even the most abusive light/medium-duty conveyor applications.

The improved lubricity of their proprietary coating also reduces wear on the inner radius of fastener loops, extending over-all splice life and increasing conveyor uptime.

Duralink pins, with their coating extruded over a braided stainless steel cable, provide flexibility to accommodate troughing conveyors or crowned pulleys.

These are optionally available prefabricated as leader assemblies with smaller-diameter, rigid-wire leaders in 1.5m or 3m lengths that help guide or draw the pin through meshed hinge loops on wider belts. The leaders are then cut off and discarded.

DuraStainless pins, intended for flat-belt applications, are built on a solid stainless wire core that provides rigidity for easy insertion and helps prevent ripple that might invite uneven splice wear.

Both constructions are offered in three diameters 1.7mm, 2.4mm and 2.8mm), and Duralink also offers a larger 3.2mm diameter. All are available in custom-cut lengths, bulk coils or convenient Pin Pak 30.5m dispensing units.
