Benefits & Features
Fewer transfer points
The high-tension capabilities of Flexsteel permit extremely long centers, exceptionally high lifts and multiple horizontal curves. This allows the designer to reduce the number of transfer points to minimize a major source of maintenance headaches and downtime.
Limited take-up travel
Flexsteel’s permanent elongation averages 0.7 % at rated tension. This allows lower cost take-up systems on many applications and makes Flexsteel the preferred choice for long overland and short stacker/reclaiming systems, where minimum elongation is critical.
Superior troughing characteristics
Because Flexsteel belts are not interwoven in the transverse direction, they offer superior troughability. Even the highest strength Flexsteel belts on steep angle idlers will trough perfectly, leading to easy belt training and full load capacity.
Exceptional belt training
Flexsteel belts are built in a “uniplane” construction, where cords are laid in precisely the same plane with tension carefully controlled and equalized under cure. Belts run straight and true because cords are laid with an alternating left- and right-hand twist. Superior troughing characteristics help ensure that the belt is in constant contact with idlers, which further enhances its ability to run straight.
Fewer conveyors and splices, shorter take-ups and reduced belt inventory add up to significant cost savings right up front. Longer belt life, life-long splices, excellent belt training and reduced downtime save you even more down the road. Overland conveyors are typically more efficient than trucks or rail. It all adds up to a lower cost-per-ton of material conveyed, which can make a major improvement in your bottom line.
Eco series pulley covers
There has been significant technical progress in the transport of bulk materials in the last several years. The advantages of our Eco series result from the special viscoelastic properties of the pulley cover. Our Eco series supports global climate sustainability objectives by enabling energy savings and a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Preform splice technology
There have been significant technical advancements in steel cord belt splicing in the past several years. Our patented Preform splices provide improved splice efficiency, along with reduced splice time and improved performance. This means more dollars in your pocket.
Belt monitoring systems
Continental Conveyor Belt Monitoring systems generate an overall picture of conveyor belt health. Our reliable belt monitoring tools can easily be adjusted to accommodate the typical changes that occur over the life of a conveyor belt. Easy to interpret belt condition reports are objectively generated by Continental's monitoring software.
