Guide Rollers for Conveyor
Other information about the product
For various reasons, the conveyor belt may tend to drift laterally at times. In these cases, to limit the problem, it’s possible to use vertical rollers with cantilevered spindles, generally known as belt guide rollers. These special rollers for conveyors allow a continuous and immediate alignment of the belt, despite the stress to be beard due to the transportation of heavy loads.
There are multiple advantages associated with the installation of guide rollers for conveyors and the provided alignment of the belt. Their use allows a more efficient, long-lasting and safer functioning of the conveyor system. To keep the belt in the right running helps to avoid slips and fall risks of the conveyed materials for operators during functioning and reduce the waste of resources. Of course, this also cut downtimes and unplanned maintenance interventions of the belt. As last consequent advantage, the use of guide rollers for conveyor may clearly increase productions and profits of the industry in question.
However, it’s necessary to pay particular attention to the use of such rollers for conveyors, so that the forces on the guide roller by the belt do not damage the belt edge. In other words, guide rollers do not eliminate the true reason for the belt tracking off; therefore, the belt may consequently ride over the guide roller or become distorted against it. For these reasons, it’s advisable to always use guide rollers on the so called self-centralizing transoms which rotate automatically whenever the belt tracks off conveyor center and self-corrects.
