Cleats (flights) for conveyor belting

Inclined conveyors occasionally require belts with profiles or cleats (flights) on the carrying surface.
These prevent slippage of the conveyed material and increases the belt capacity.

The type and height of the most suitable cleat (flight) is determined according to the characteristics of the
conyeved material and the inclination of the conveyor. Optimum conveying capacity can be achieved up
to angles of 70º by this means.

Notched PVC trapezoidal tracking guides can be supplied; this increases belt flexibility and when fitted to
the underside of the belt can reduce the minimum pulley diameter by 10%.

esbelt cleats (flights) are oil and fat resistant.

Examples of possible cleat (flight) arrangements are as follows:
