Small Conveyor Belt Options

Belting and Cleat Material

The following table shows the most commonly used and cost-effective belting we offer. These selections are comparably priced and suitable for most applications. However, we offer many specialty materials, for uses such as very high temperatures, wipedown, severe chemical exposure and ESD-rated belting for electronics and other static-sensitive environments. Consult with your representative for any questions regarding the most suitable belt material for your application.

U1, U2 and U4 belts will withstand product temperatures of up to 212°F in applications where product contact is transitory. Temperature values given above are based on continuous or prolonged product contact that elevates or decreases belt material temperature. Contact your representative for assistance with high-heat applications.

Flat Belting Material Styles

Low-Friction Belts

The U3, U4 and P1 are used primarily for product accumulation and product diverting for side-discharge.

U3 Style

  • Lowest coefficient of friction
  • FDA conformance
  • Urethane impregnated
  • General transport, good for fast product release

U4 Style

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • FDA conformance
  • General food handling
  • Plastics, molding & extruding

P1 Style

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Minimal reflection for camera & laser inspection
  • Product accumulation
  • Inkjet & bar code printing

General Purpose Belt

U1 Style

  • Versatile belt which provides chemical, cut & abrasion resistance
  • FDA conformance
  • Medium-friction surface

High-Friction Belt

P3 Style

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • FDA conformance
  • General food handling
  • Plastics, molding & extruding

Sealed / Severe Duty Belt

P1/U5 Style

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Minimal reflection for camera & laser inspection
  • Product accumulation
  • Inkjet & bar code printing

Cleated Belts

Cleats (also called carriers, ribs or flights) can be added to flat belting in order to separate or support products, especially in incline & decline applications. Cleats are available on all U-style belts except the U3. Standard cleat styles and sizes are shown below, which are those most commonly used. Cleat heights other than those listed here are also available upon customer request. Please contact your sales representative for non-standard cleat configurations.
