ASGCO unveils an enhanced series of Sure Grip conveyor belt clamps in its 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. Able 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 tons) model is available for belts up to 72 in. wide and conveyor belts up to 1 in. 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 tons) has a lighter metal body and incorporates the use of reinforced bars. It is available for belts up to 96 in. wide and up to 2¼ in. 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, conducive for easy transportation and assembly. Its 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.
