DALLAS,TEXAS, U.S. — Maxi-Lift, Inc., a leading manufacturer of elevator buckets, recently introduced the TITAN Ultimate Belt Splice. Maxi-Lift said that the TITAN’s innovative design, solid-duty aluminum construction and superior quality mark a new standard for splice performance and elevator belt lifespan.

Engineered for large export river terminals or 24-hour processing plants, the TITAN was designed for thick elevator belts. Maxi-Lift said that TITAN is superior to standard belt splices in performance and longevity. It decreases elevator downtime and maintenance. After installation, operators are assured with a secure belt splice that exceeds expectations, Maxi-Lift said.

The TITAN is constructed with a central aluminum vice-grip section that is bracketed by two exterior aluminum clamps. Belt ends bend through a 75 mm radius to a 90-degree angle, employing clamp force and friction to secure the load. The central wedge is equipped with rubber backing on the pulley side to prevent wear due to pressure or friction generated during operation.

“Customers who have been searching for a secure, durable, heavy splice will love the TITAN UltimateBelt Splice,” Paul Phillips, Maxi-Lift executive vice-president of sales and marketing said. “The TITAN provides operators with an extremely robust splice for their largest bucket elevators. The demand for higher capacity elevators has increased. In accordance, there is a need for stronger elevator belt splices. Through this innovation, we deliver exceptional value for tough applications. There is no other splice like the TITAN.”
