Critical Conveyor Components
Variety of components offered
In addition to custom conveyor systems such as stationary conveyors and radial stackers, Kemper Equipment also offers conveyor components including mine-duty pulleys, grip strut walkway and handrails, belt scrapers, and head and tail pulleys.
NTEP-approved, single-point load cells
The Schenck Process Conveyor Belt Scale precisely weighs continuous flow rates of sand, gravel, and crushed stone in processing plants producing up to 15,000 tons per hour, according to the manufacturer. The belt scale is offered for single and multiple idlers with measuring accuracies of plus or minus 1 percent of total weight.
Each unit is designed with NTEP (National Type Evaluation Program)-approved single-point load cells, integrator, and configured for use with 18- to 60-inch wide CEMA idlers. The INTECONT MS Integrator is supplied with the belt scale, and the measuring system is packaged in a NEMA 4 enclosure that features two-line alphanumeric display, three internal totalizers, and a menu-driven interface for programming, calibration, and operation.
Reduces noise by 50 decibels
The patent-pending pulley design for Superior Industries’ Chevron Wing Pulley can deflect threatening material, extend the life of conveyor belts, and reduce noise by nearly 50 decibels, according to the manufacturer. It’s designed to provide more reliability in tail pulley applications. A round bar wing cap design is said to prolong wear life, and its V-shape aids in bringing the belt to the center of the pulley.
Last three times longer than steel
The new Moxie idler roll from Superior Industries is said to last three times longer than steel. It’s designed with a specially formulated high-density polyethylene (HPDE) material and was developed to solve problems caused by abrasive material and buildup, according to the manufacturer.
The rolls are manufactured with the company’s SpinGuard seal system, which is designed to protect the bearing from contaminants. The rolls are a lightweight alternative to steel and can be retrofit into any idler frame or bracket.
Converts conveyors into weighing systems
The new SWC515 Pinmount compact weigh module from Mettler Toledo comes in 7.5-, 15-, and 22.5-ton capacities and is able to be convert tanks, hoppers, and conveyors into weighing systems. The modules can be used for static weighing as well as dynamic applications such as mixers and conveyors.
The 360-degree horizontal bumper and self-restoring feature on the rocker-pin load cell help to ensure an easy and accurate installation, according to the manufacturer. The stabilizer option can be added any time in dynamic applications. Two anti-lift bolts as well as four vertical safety stops come standard on the weigh module.
