Apron Style Replacement Conveyor Belts

This belt is similar to a hinge steel belt, but instead of hinges it has steel formed pans (¼”, 3/8”, ½”) that overlap one another to help seal the bottom so material remains on the top surface. ¼”, 3/8”, ½”side wings on the side that help ensure material remains on the belt body.

Hinged Steel Replacement Conveyor Belts

This belt has ¼” hinges spread throughout the body of the belt which allow the belt to flex around the conveyor frame. ¼” side wings on the side that help ensure material remains on the belt body.
