Guarding and safety equipment for machinery can help operations avoid costly accidents and injuries.
A new line of conveyor safety equipment from ASGCO is designed to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration and MSHA guarding requirements. The new line includes the Return Roll Changer that supplies pinch-point protection; Safe-Guard Belt Clamps that apply even tension across the entire width of the belt conveyor; the Safe-Guard Return Idler Guard designed to prevent injuries from pinch points and catch the return idler if it should fall; the V-Return Idler (right) that protects workers and equipment from falling idlers; the Return Idler Cage designed to catch the return idler if it should fall; and the Flat Return Conveyor Guard that mounts on the conveyor to guard against moving equipment.
RMT Equipment says its TrackVision Safety Camera System provides 360 degrees of clear vision. The waterproof wide-angle camera is said to give equipment operators a 115-degree field of view in any direction to eliminate blind spots to the front, rear, sides, and “over the wall.” The system comes with RF-resistant cabling and easy instructions for quick, do-it-yourself installations. The system’s shock-proof, 7-inch, hi-resolution LCD monitor offers clarity even in low light and allows operators to view up to four cameras at one time.
Arch Environmental says its Dean Energy Harvester harnesses conveyor belt energy and improves safety and security. The process energy recycler is designed to collect, store, and distribute the process energy normally lost when conveying raw material on bulk-handling belt conveyors. The reclaimed energy is then used for site lighting and safety and security cameras. The unit also reduces carbon emissions.
