Short belt's splice

Short belt's splice

Short belt's splice

Hi guys,

I have a short flat belt:

1. 10 ft long;
2. 48 in wide;
3. 450 fpm for belt speed;
4. 12 inches for pulley diameter

Considering the speed and length, what kind of splice you think will be good? if use mechanical type, any bad effects?


RE: Short belt's splice

Duct tape.

Providing more detailed information on the application will probably result in better answers than that.

RE: Short belt's splice


The belt will be used to move dirt or earch. The density is between 70-120 lb/cu ft. That is surface application not underground mining.

Is that enough to understand the situation?


RE: Short belt's splice

Belt material is rubber? fabric?  PVC?  Metal mesh?  Fiberglass?  Some combination of those?

Is it supported between the rollers?  On what?
