Belt trainer promises superior tracking

Launched at the QME trade show in Mackay, Queensland in July, the new PTEZ belt trainer, which is equipped with Flexco’s “pivot and tilt” feature, may be used in any application that requires tracking to prevent damage to the belt or conveyor structure, including single-direction and reversing belts.

The pivot and tilt feature ensures that the belt stays away from the structure and the material stays on the belt without the use of the sensor or edge rollers. The tapered ends on the roller drive the pivot and tilt mechanism, allowing the two forces to quickly move the belt back to centre.

“The PTEZ belt trainer is an advanced solution over typical low cost wobblers or pivot-only trainers,” Flexco’s managing director Mark Colbourn said. “With our pivot and tilt technology, the PTEZ will pivot away from and increase tension on the mistracked side to quickly guide the belt back to centre.”

The PTEZ belt trainer can be used on vulcanised or mechanically fastened belts on almost any medium-duty application, including wet and dry conditions, belts with edge damage or wear, and belts that are mistracking to one or both sides.

Available for belt widths from 450mm to 1200mm, the PTEZ belt trainer can be mounted as a standard “pull-up” mounting or on the clean side of the return side of a cupped belt. The simple, adjustable mounting brackets ensure quick, accurate installation.

The belt trainer also features a polyurethane roller cover, which ensures lasting performance in even tough conditions. 

Flexco provides belt conveyors with efficient, safe products, services, and solutions for splicing, belt cleaning, belt tracking, spillage, and slippage.
