July 2009 – RollOuts
Martin Engineering says its new Martin Dust Caps are installed on the “legs” of conveyors to prevent material accumulation and corrosion at the base of conveyor structures. Made from molded polyurethane, the pyramid shape of the dust caps causes material to fall away from the conveyor foot, making it easier to clean it up. The dust caps are orange in color and are available in 3- and 4-inch sizes.
Rock ripping tooth for excavators, backhoes
Leading Edge Attachments, Inc. says its new 23 Series Multi-Ripper Tooth for excavators and backhoes allows operators to easily rip rock, coral shale, caliche, decomposed granite, limestone, sandstone, asphalt, or frozen ground with maximum breakout force. The two points on the twin tiger teeth use the patented “SHARC” technology (SHanks on an ARC) that places the points at staggered positions along an arc that has a center near the bucket/stick pivot point, focusing the entire breakout force on one point at a time.
Conveyor equipment inspection door
ASGCO Manufacturing says its new Chute Inspection and Access Doors allow for safe visual inspection of conveyor equipment while the conveyor is running. By looking through the removable inspection screen guard, standard on every door, the condition of the equipment inside the chute can be checked without exposing employees to moving parts and risk of injury. The surfaces slope away from the door panel on the interior to prevent material buildup. The doors are available in three standard sizes — 12 inches by 12 inches, 12 inches by 18 inches, and 18 inches by 24 inches.
