- Approximate open area excluding the edges.
- The product weights are based on normal running conditions. Temperature, speed, and belt support will effect the allowable load.
- Maximum loading decreases when utilizing 6″ center support rails.
- 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.
- 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.
- Other considerations, when selecting the right belt specification, are the sprocket diameter, minimum transfer roll size, and the correct reverse bend diameter.
- 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.
