2012, Downers Grove, Ill. – Flexco announced the release of two new products to
improve performance in belt conveyor load zones. Flexco EZ Impact Beds provide
simple and effective protection in the load zone, while Flexco EZ Slider Beds
provide containment to reduce spillage.

With the
same durability found in the heavy-duty DRX™ Impact Beds from Flexco, EZ Impact
Beds are available in light-duty and medium-duty options. Much like the DRX
Impact beds, these 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.

 

For solid
spillage control, operations can turn to EZ Slider Beds from Flexco, which are
engineered to provide containment around the load zones. The EZ 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
EZ Impact Beds and EZ 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
EZ slider beds or impact beds.”

 

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