QC Industries has introduced the Flextrac plastic chain belt conveyors, which can move heavier loads over longer distances than standard flat belt conveyors, according to the company. Flextrac conveyors feature load capacities of up to 500 pounds and speeds of up to 375 feet per minute.
These conveyors have a low, 2.41-inch profile (3.03 inches at the drive end), which allows them to fit in tight quarters where conventional conveyors will not fit. The conveyor frames are laser cut from 10-gauge steel, which is then powder coated. Each conveyor features wear strips and center supports to ensure long belt life and quiet operation. QC Industries applies its Lube-for-Life on the conveyors, making them virtually maintenance-free. The permanent micro-poly lubricant eliminates the need to periodically lubricate bearings, the company says.
QC Industries offers standard Flextrac conveyors in lengths of up to 30 feet; lengths of up to 100 feet are available through special order. Flextrac conveyors are also available with more than 100 styles of industry-standard one-inch pitch belting. Available belts include flush grid or flat top styles in a variety of materials, from low-cost polypropylene, to polyethylene with anti-microbial additive, to a super-high-temperature composite. Specialty belts are also available, including roller-top belts for accumulation, high-friction belts, and nub-top belts for easy product release.
