R-Flex® Belt Repair Kit
At a pulp & paper site, a mill log feed conveys full size logs that are dropped 10 feet on a belt traveling 100FPM. The belt length is 60 feet by 36 inches wide. The force of a large log dropping on the a small hole caused an unexpected 5 foot long tear halting production.
Even though the mill personnel thought it would not be possible to repair the belt without using alligator clips, the belt tear was repaired with Devcon® R-Flex®.. The belt was put back into service 4 hours later and has been running well.
