Track flanges are used to link up straight tubes as well as curves. Track flanges are linked up using 5/16”X1” (7.94mm x 25.4mm) hexagonal head bolts and hexagonal nylon lock nuts. Usually, all straight tubes and curves are shipped with a track flange welded to each end of the tube. This limits the need for welding when installing the tubes. Track flanges can also be sold separately.
Support flanges are used to support the conveyor by tying in the conveyor’s slotted tube with the vertical support tube. The diameter of the vertical support tubes must be 1-1/16” (26.99mm). The support flanges should not be too tightened because they could flatten the slotted tube. That is why nylon lock nuts are enclosed when shipping support flanges.
