Rollers / Stations
The development of this troughing set is the result of long practical experience in the field. The two rollers that comprise the set are assembled onto a single shaft of 15 mm diameter, and their external end caps hermetically sealed. Together with the central support the unitary assembly is extremely strong. Cantilevered sets are available with rollers from series MPS and their use is applicable to light or medium load capacity belt conveyors with small material piece size. The support positions the two rollers in a manner that minimises the gap between them, without affecting their free rotation. In this manner the belt is perfectly supported and no damage results even to a flexible belt due to the proximity of the two support rollers. The cantilevered sets may be located by their support fixing with screws or onto an appropriate base plate part number SPT 1316. The support brackets of the set have been designed with longitudinal "fixing" slots to allow for perfect belt alignment.
