New Flexco Load Zone Products Offer Protection and Spillage Control

July 03, 2012

Flexco recently announced the release of two new products to improve performance in belt conveyor load zones. Flexco impact beds provide simple and effective protection in the load zone, while Flexco slider beds provide containment to reduce spillage. 

With the same rugged durability found in the heavy-duty DRX™ Impact Beds from Flexco, these impact beds are available in light-duty and medium-duty options. Much like the DRX Impact beds, the beds feature impact bars for absorbing material impact, while the additional long-wearing UHMW slider bar is ideal for sealing the load zone. Specification and installation of the bed is made easier with adjustable trough angles and universal components.

“Maintenance crews can simply lower the troughing angles to provide easy access to the bars and bolts for quick and safe maintenance,” said Ryan Grevenstuk, product manager for Flexco.

Slider Bed

For solid spillage control, operations can turn to Flexco slider beds, which are engineered to provide containment around the load zones. The  slider beds also feature UHMW slider bars to effectively seal the load and provide longer wear life. They are available with optional CoreTech™ impact rollers for superior containment in light impact areas.

“Both the impact beds and slider beds have universal components that provide effective, yet affordable solutions,” Grevenstuk said. “Whether you need to seal the load in impact or non-impact areas, Flexco has the solution with the slider beds or impact beds.”

For maximum load-point results, pairing the slider bed and impact bed can create a holistic load zone system.
