Belt Covering & Selection Process
F.N. Sheppard has a wide selection of belt coverings to select from. Belt coverings very in elastomer compound, hardness, surface texture and flexibility. You can select the type of belt that is best suited for application and then select the outer covering that will work best in handling your product. Please contact us and we would be glad to help you with this selection process.

If you’re using thick coverings but need more flexibility or compressibility, we can serrate or notch the cover.
