Strength of this fastener is derived from the compression of the plates, mounted above and below the belt, with high tensile strength bolts. this “compression” distributes the splice tension across the full width of each fastener plate. The holding ability is, thereby, increased by not solely relying upon the bolts to resist pull-out.

Additional strength and resistance to pull-out is obtained from the specially formed teeth on each plate. These teeth imbed deep into the belt carcass, but without damaging the carcass fibers.

A tight butt splice is achieved through the exaggerated bolt hole spacing in the templet which forces the belt ends together. And, the Bolt Solid Plate Fasteners permit natural conformance with troughing or transition idlers.

The 140, 190 and 2 ¼ size fasteners are specifically designed for today’s thinner belting, allowing increased compression, greater reach-back and more fastener plates per belt width.

Bolt Solid Plate Installation Tools & Supplies

The only tools needed for installing Solid Plate fasteners are a templet and simple, portable hand tools. Impact wrench driven power tools are suggested since they can speed installation time by as much as 50%.

Templets

Templets insure precise hole placement for a tight splice. Templets install one size fastener only. Templets are not interchangeable among fastener sizes, but certain templet widths of a given size may be interchanged in an emergency.

Note: A 45186º splice requires a special templet. Please call for information.

Hand or Power Tools for Bolt Solid Plate Fasteners

In addition to a templet, the following hand or power tools are required for installation: a punch or a boring bit (the punch is preferred for general use and where the belt cover is over 3/16″ thick); a wrench; and two bolt breakers.

A power impact wrench cuts application time by approximately 50%. It should be used with a “quick change chuck” which adapts the tools to the square drive stud on an air or electric impact wrench.
