World Cement,

Flexco® has unveiled a new kit, designed to make emergency rip repairs on heavy-duty conveyor belts fast and easy. The Rip Repair Kit contains what is needed to splice up to 50 ft of belt with a power tool.

The Bolt Solid Plate Fasteners are designed for conveyor belt holes and edge tears. They can also be combined with three-bolt Rip Repair Fasteners for jagged, lengthways conveyor belt tears or for bridging ‘soft spots’.

The kits are available in a variety of belt thicknesses, ranging from 6 mm to 32 mm thick. Kits also come with a bucket filled with the appropriate fasteners for the selected belt thickness, a bolt horn, bolt breakers, a power punch, a power boring bit, two power wrenches, and a quick change chuck. For complete installation, a 13 mm impact tool is required.

“You never know when an emergency rip repair will be necessary,” said Aaron Rosso, Senior Product Manager. “That’s why having a box with all the tools you need when you need them is a must-have for any site that experiences belt tears.”
