Other information about the product
Sometimes the difficult working conditions of the plant results in a lateral movement of the belt. In this case a self-centering troughing set is used which acts in a way that corrects the belt tracking and maintains it constantly in the central position.
The self-centering troughing set is designed as a series of rollers arranged in a trough positioned onto the supporting transom which itself is fixed to a slewing ring which permits rotation.
The slewing ring (a large ball bearing) permits a rotation limited to 5-8 degrees and is sized in proportion to the vertical loading; a tapered roller bearing assembled to the shaft of the slewing ring, absorbs any side forces or overturning pressures.
The installation of the self-centering troughing sets is advised to be positioned on the upper strand rather than the return section, and used only when the working conditions require.
The belt tracking roller responds instantly to the misalignment of the belt
The cleaning equipment is used to assure the general plant efficiency and to reduce the periods of service needed for maintenance.
Sets used for sustaining the empty belt in the return section.
