  1. Approximate open area excluding the edges.
  2. The product weights are based on normal running conditions. Temperature, speed, and belt support will effect the allowable load.
  3. Maximum loading decreases when utilizing 6″ center support rails.
  4. Under good conditions, speeds up to 120 feet per minute may be used, but to achieve maximum belt life, it is recommended to use the following normal speeds.
  5. The table shows the Maximum Allowable Tension per Z-Bend joint at the drive roll. The amount of Z-Bends is calculated by taking the number of spaces across the width plus 1.
  6. Other considerations, when selecting the right belt specification, are the sprocket diameter, minimum transfer roll size, and the correct reverse bend diameter.
  7. When Flexx Flow Belts are used in applications with elevated temperatures, or for conveyor lengths in excess of 40 feet, a take up roll is recommended to compensate for stretch and expansion. In order to take up this slack, the belt must take a reverse bend. A reverse bend must be larger in radius than the normal way the belt would flex and varies depending on belt specification.
