Robustness, reliability, extended belt life

GEA Q-belt

Long years of experience in the manufacture and application of self-stacking conveyor belts, and the service network of GEA, guarantee you optimum belt replacement while minimizing your downtime.

Collapsing Belt Take-Up (CBTU)

Designed for Q-belt and any self-stacking belt that can collapse fully on both sides, our Collapsing Belt Take-Up can replace your outdated counterweight system for a more dependable operating system through tensionless belt run.
The CBTU minimizes unplanned maintenance and reduces belt wear. There are no pulleys or counterweights. Just a simple belt path that allows the Q-Belt to push itself much of the way along without unnecessary wear and stress. With up to twice as much belt storage, the CBTU will seldom require unplanned belt length adjustments.
“It has virtually eliminated the need to either adjust take up or cut out excessive belt”
