WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Advantages of Clipper ® Wire Hooks Machine installed. Variety of lacers to meet specific needs. Low profile splice. Large variety of sizes and metals. Low costs splice.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Selection Guide – Step 1 Measure belt thickness with the Clipper ® Hook Gauge, Micrometer or Caliper. If the belt has an impression cover remove the impression prior to measuring the thickness.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Selection Guide – Step 2 Check the beltline for the smallest pulley that has at least a 90° wrap. Measure pulley diameter.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Selection Guide – Step 3 Referencing the Fastener Selection Chart, identify possible fastener choices based on the belt thickness and minimum pulley diameter.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Selection Guide – Step 4 Select wire diameter. –Smaller Diameter: Less noise as the splice contacts conveyor components. Less wear on conveyor components. –Larger Diameter: Added strength from increased wire mass. Added wear resistance.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Carded Hooks Each hook is individually loaded onto a carding paper. Carding paper is used to secure the hooks during installation. Two styles of carding paper available. Paper style is dependent upon hook size.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Unibar ® Hooks Each individual hook is welded to a common bar.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Advantages of Unibar ® Hooks Easier handling. Hook legs remain parallel when installed. Easier meshing of belt ends and easier pin insertion. No belt wave. Minimal chance of an individual hook dislodging. Patented Safety Strip protects fingers from hook points. Custom lengths mm (4-60).
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS When Unibar ® Is Not Recommended Crowned pulleys. Troughing applications. Bias splices. Specific metal requirements.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS ClipMark ® Series Hooks Ideal for European style belting and Filter Media materials. Shaped Wire: 0.7mm (.027) high X 0.9mm (.036) wide. Low profile splice with added strength. Available in Carded or Unibar ® configurations.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS ClipMark Series Hooks ClipMark Hooks (Green):.7mm (.027) high x.9mm (.036) wide. Offers low profile, high strength. #25 Hooks (Red):.6mm (.024) round. Slightly lower profile than ClipMark hooks, but significantly less strength. #30 Hooks (Blue):.8mm (.030) round. Slightly higher profile and lower strength than ClipMark hooks
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Selection Guide – Step 6 Select hook leg length. The larger the hook, the longer the reach back. Under normal conditions it is recommended to use a shorter leg length for less fatigue. Under conditions where failures have occurred due to fastener comb out or under severe tension, use a longer reach back.
WIRE HOOK FASTENER SYSTEMS Selection Guide – Step 7 Select the metal that is most appropriate for the application. Some typical wire include: –Galvanized - All purpose. –High Tensile - Added abrasion resistance and added strength. –430 and 316 Stainless - Corrosion resistance and food applications.
