  • Reduced power consumption due to smooth rollers. The absorbed power to run the conveyor is 60kw, while a similar exisiting conveyor (same length, same load capacity) made by a competior with other branded rollers is absorbing 90kW
  • Belt mis-Alignment in +/-2 mm, due to self aligning with brake
  • No stoppage for roller replacement, due to no failures of rollers having triple sealing system
  • No time lost for cleaning as no spillages in 1km due to no mis-alignment
  • No spillage at transfer point, due to chute design, impact bars and 100% sealing side skirts
  • Reduced belt wear due to chute design, impact bars, best quality rollers
  • No dust emisión at transfer point due to chute design, impact bars and 100% sealing side skirts
