Troughing sets for bulk handling
In a belt conveyor one may identify two types of troughing sets: the upper carrying sets, that have the function to support the loaded sections of the belt and to move the material; and the lower sets that support the unloaded belt on its return section.
The upper troughing sets may basically be in two arrangements: flat, with a single horizontal roller generally supported by two fixed brackets from the conveyor structure; troughed, generally with 3 rollers supported within a frame which is itself fixed to the conveyor structure.
There may be then, in the loaded sections, impact troughing sets that have rollers with rubber rings or suspended “garland” sets.
