Maximum tracking from ASGCO
ASGCO has improved its well-known tracking idlers for high-tonnage and high speed applications, including bulk shipping above/below-ground mining.
ASGCO’s line of Tru-Trainer conveyor tracking idlers now includes an extra-heavy-duty (EXHD) line to accommodate high speed and tonnage associated with mining operations. The tapered ends sense any potential belt alignment issues, and initiate the tracking corrections to take place instantly, without the need for edge contact rollers.
A seize-proof external pivot mechanism was designed, eliminating the need for a single, large drum, and enabling a concentric and balance rotation to be achieved, the company explained.
Developed the accommodate the excessive forces encountered with wide belt widths and heavy loads, the EXHD return idlers can accommodate conveyor belt speeds in excess of 4m/sec and/or greater than 1,500 PIW. The integrated design also extends the bearing life, said ASGCO, and is proven to withstand the toughest mining applications worldwide.
“With the effectiveness of our line of Tru-Trainer conveyor tracking idlers, it was natural to develop a variation that could handle the intense demands of high-speed and high-tonnage operations in a more rugged environment,” said Jeff Jurasits, ASGCO vice president.
“The EXHD version incorporates rollers that withstand even the most abrasive conditions, while continuing to provide excellent coefficient of friction with the conveyor belt.”
