Polymer Rollers - TOP
Other information about the product
Rulmeca TOP rollers are totally thermoplastic polymer rollers with the exception of the steel in the ball bearing and the shaft.
As completely polymer rollers, they have about 50% lower weight with respect to steel rollers. First, this ensures easier and safer transportation, mounting and maintenance operations, preventing back injuries of the operator, especially in application where such interventions might be critical (for example suspended belt conveyor, difficult access, long conveyors). Moreover, their lightness means a lower power consumption during start/stop operation of the belt conveyor and therefore a reduction of power requirements on the plant. Even the low running resistance sealing system of TOP polymer rollers have the same effect by requiring a lower motor torque in conveyor starts, a lower motor power size and therefore a reduction of energy consumption of the belt conveyor.
Other advantages come from the construction materials of TOP polymer rollers making them suitable for a wide variety of applications. Due to thermoplastic noise and vibration absorption, they have a low noise emission. They also have a high wear resistance, due to a low level of abrasion and corrosion, which guarantees a longer life of rollers and a lower maintenance of the whole plant.
Finally, thanks to the self-cleaning roller surface, the use of TOP polymer rollers favors the prevention of build-up of material, main cause of belt mis-tracking, and the consequent reduction of spillage from the belt.
These return rollers contribute to eliminating the build-up of material which particularly is present in the belt centre.
Sets used for sustaining the empty belt in the return section.
Troughing sets used for sustaining the belt on the loaded section and the section where it is loaded with material.
Support brackets in cold pressed sheet steel.
