Flexco recently added the FXC Steel Cord Belt Fastening System to its line of heavy-duty mechanical belt fastening systems. When an operation needs to reduce downtime from a damaged belt, the FXC can provide an immediate solution as a temporary splice or to pull a belt onto the conveyor system.

Although the FXC Steel Cord Belt Fastening System is designed to be a temporary solution, users can expect full performance at normal levels to fill stockpiles and continue operations while vulcanization is scheduled. This patented fastener design has undergone extensive internal and field testing to ensure strong performance in the most demanding environments.

The FXC Steel Cord Belt Fastening System can be pre-spliced to belt ends ahead of a belt pull, making stringing a belt onto the system even faster.

Because there are many different steel cord belt constructions, a datasheet is used to collect the belt’s specifications so a custom splice kit can be made for a specific belt. Customers are asked to provide the belt rating (currently available for belts up to ST2500), cord diameter, cord pitch, and belt width. After submission, a quote can be provided along with additional details about the splice kit and installation.
