Launch of new kit containing everything needed for emergency repair of ripped conveyor belts
FLEXCO recently unveiled a new kit designed to make emergency rip repairs on heavy-duty conveyor belts fast and easy. The Rip Repair Kit contains everything needed to splice up to 50ft of belt with a power tool.
Flexco recommend the use of standard Flexco bolt solid plate fasteners for conveyor belt holes and edge tears. For jagged, lengthwise conveyor belt tears, or for bridging ‘soft spots’, standard bolt solid plate fasteners can be combined with three-bolt rip repair fasteners.
Belt thickness is all that is needed to order a Rip Repair Kit. The kits are available for belts ranging from 6mm to 32mm in thickness and come with a bucket filled with the appropriate fasteners for the selected thickness, as well as a bolt horn, bolt breakers, a power punch, a power boring bit, two power wrenches and a quick-change chuck. All that is required for complete installation is a 13mm impact tool.
‘You never know when an emergency rip repair will be necessary,’ said Flexco’s senior product manager Aaron Rosso. ‘That’s why having a box with all the tools you need, when you need them, is a must-have for any site that experiences belt tears.’
