ALLENTOWN, PA – ASGCO® (“Complete conveyor solutions”) recently unveiled their newly enhanced series of Sure Grip™ conveyor belt clamps in their line of Safe-Guard® safety conveyor products. Designed to secure the belt for safe repair, the BC6 (6 tons) and BC8 (8 tons) Sure Grip™ belt clamps were created for maximum grip. Capable to handle more weight and work in any condition, they replace the existing BC5 (5 tons) and BC7 (7 tons) models.
The new BC6 (6 ton) model is available for belts up to 72 inches wide and up to 1 inch thick. It is primarily designed for use in medium duty aggregate, cement, coal and coal-fired power plants, copper and gold mining, iron ore and steel mills, pulp and paper mills, bulk shipping terminals and mineral mining.
The new BC8 (8 ton) has a lighter metal body and incorporates the use of reinforced bars. It is available for belts up to 96 inches wide and up to 2 1/4 inches thick. With a larger design, it is capable of handling heavy duty wide conveyor belts in above ground and below-ground mining, coal and coal-fired power plants, copper and gold mining, iron ore and steel mills and bulk shipping terminals.
Sure Grip™ belt clamps are constructed from high grade steel components that are light in weight and conducive for easy transportation and assembly. Their shock-absorbing end caps are designed to protect the bars from hammer use and drops. Engineered for tough conditions, Sure Grip™ belt clamps allow for a lasting gripping force that far exceed all competitive solutions.
