Heavyweight Conveyor Belting

ECS has developed a comprehensive range of heavyweight belts, which includes ply, solid woven and steel cord belt which are marketed under the ‘Fenner’, ‘Dunlop’ and ‘Fenner-Dunlop’ brands. ECS belts provide users with the lowest lifecycle cost for the reliable operation of conveyors.

The type of belt used depends upon the specific operating environment (for example, whether above or below ground) and the materials being handled, which include coal, hard rock ores (such as iron or copper), other minerals, concrete, aggregates, forest products and grain.

As part of its strategy to increase sales to the industrial segments of the conveyor market, ECS has launched its “Patriot X” range of belts, which provide ECS’s US customers with domestically manufactured belts for light to medium industrial applications. A similar range named “Ultra” is being launched in Europe.

Alongside its range of belts, ECS also manufactures and supplies related components necessary for the efficient operation of a conveyor system, such as pulleys, rollers, idlers and cleaners.

ECS supplies heavyweight belting to its customers from its network of strategically located factories across the world.
