14Carded 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.
15Unibar® HooksEach individual hook is welded to a common bar.
16Advantages 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”).
17When Unibar® Is Not Recommended Crowned pulleys.Troughing applications.Bias splices.Specific metal requirements.
18ClipMark® 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.
19ClipMark™ 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
20Selection 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.
21Selection Guide – Step 7Select 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.
