  • ChannelFrame_FLX.jpg Channel FrameA structural channel frame can be used when dust control is not a primary concern.  An advantage of our channel frame design is that allows for greater spans between support locations.
  • EnclosedFrame_FLX.jpg Enclosed FrameWhen dust control is a major concern, our enclosed frame design is used to contain emissions and provides the highest level of protection to your product and personnel.  Our standard enclosed frame comes with tool-less top covers and bolt-on bottom covers for easy access to internal components.
  • StructuralSupport_FLX.jpg Structural Support TrussStructural W-beam, welded box and gallery trusses can be used to support a Series-FLX when longer spans between ground supports is required.
  • SupportBents_FLX.jpg Support BentsA structural steel support frame designed and fabricated to support a conveyor at an elevation. These are designed and fabricated to accommodate the elevation and loads of the job site.
  • Walkway_FLX.jpg WalkwaysA platform with a safety handrail that is supported off the side of a conveyor from which a person can walk along the length of a conveyor for maintenance and access. These can be on one or both sides of a conveyor.
  • ServicePlatform_FLX.jpg Service PlatformsA platform for safely accessing and maintaining key areas of a conveyor.
  • ChutesTransitions_FLX.jpg Chutes/Transitions Customized chutes and transitions are designed to move product to and from conveyors to other conveyors and process equipment. These are available with a variety of wear liner options depending on the material being conveyed.
  • PulleysandIdlers_FLX.jpg Mine Duty & Engineered Class Pulleys Mine duty pulleys are heavier duty than standard pulleys for harsh environments. When mine duty pulleys still don’t meet the required belt tensions and durability requirements of an application, pulleys can be engineered to meet those demands.
  • WaterDeluge_FLX.jpg Water Deluge LinesPressurized water lines with diffusers that can be attached to a conveyor to flood the product with water in order to suppress dust and extinguish potential fires. This is a unique option for specific applications.
