Upgrade metal belts

Where things get tough, our ELT (extended life time) rod network belt keeps going. Demanding operating conditions, high speeds or high belt tension – our rod network belts are just what you need, as they reduce downtimes and offer an extended service life. Compared with conventional belt constructions, our products offer you several advantages, such as better distribution of the tensile forces thanks to a greater number of interconnecting nodes. ELT rod network belts come of course with all the excellent features that are typical for this type of conveyor belt, from easy cleaning to low-cost repairs. On request, we provide ELT rod network belts made in special wire material such as K2390. As these belts are single-loop meshed, endless connections can be made quickly and at minimum expense. More Information? Take a look at the Video on our Website www. maertens-conveyorbelts.com and meet us at the Expo Hollywood / Florida.
