Belt Fasteners and Vulcanising

Belt Fasteners and Vulcanising

Fasteners are a quick, economical and convenient method of forming a belt into a loop. They have the advantage over pre-made loops in that they don't require the conveyor to be dismantled in order to fit a new belt.

Fasteners are available in mild steel for typical indoor use, or stainless steel for outdoor use, or environments where hygeine is important. They are also available in non-magnetic steel for use in metal detectors et al.


A correctly selected and attached fastener typically has 150% of the belts strengh, ensuring a reliable and robust joint.

There are situations in which a fastener cannot be used, such as when carrying fine powders or aggregates (which could penetrate the fasteners hinge, and gradually erode it away), or with metal-detector applications. (even stainless steel is not 100% transparant to certain detector types).
In these situations, and where a pre-made endless belt cannot be used (because it may require extensive dismantling of the machine), then On-Site Vulcanisation can be the most effective option.
