Vulcanized Splicing

As a leader in conveyor belt splicing technology, Fenner Dunlop’s belt technicians have been extensively trained on numerous splicing procedures/techniques to ensure a superior approach to vulcanizing our customer’s conveyor belting. Our technicians can install overlap, filler strip, finger (high integrity), single stage, and multi-stage splices to meet your conveyor belt requirements. Each splice is performed and assembled by certified technicians using the highest quality raw materials, then heated at a properly documented temperature and consistent pressure in order to create the highest quality finished product, with a long service life. Our technicians offer a wide array of splicing services for belts up to 96” wide, and up to 2000 piw (fabric), and up to ST7000 (steel cable).

Mechanical Splicing

Our technicians are trained to install mechanical fasteners of all types. When vulcanized splicing does not fit your situation, and there is a need for a quick repair and get running immediately, mechanical fasteners are most likely the answer. If your conveyor belt develops a rip or tear, our technicians are highly capable of installing specially designed mechanical fastenings to seal shut the damaged area and keep the conveyor belt moving until there is time to schedule a more permanent solution. Typically, fabric belts can be joined with mechanical fasteners while a steel cable belt must be vulcanized. Mechanical fasteners for rips and tears, however, can be installed to make temporary repairs to both fabric and steel cable belts. Back to Top

Belt Reconditioning/Repairs

Fenner Dunlop ECS can extend your conveyor belt life through belt refurbishing. Our certified splice technicians will take your rolls of conveyor belt and turn them into a useable asset. Reconditioning used conveyor belt will maximize the belt life, restore your used conveyor belt to custom and useable lengths and widths, reduces the number of splices in the conveyor, and offer greater flexibility when removing belt from take-ups. Reconditioning also provides an opportunity for belt inspections which predict and plan for belt replacement consistent with capital requirements.
