HDPE rollers for light to medium duty applications: a light, strong, eco-friendly solution.

TOP

  • ANTICORROSION POLYMER ROLLER (HOUSINGS & TUBE) FOR MEDIUM-HEAVY DUTY
  • SHAFTS Ø20-25, HERMETIC OR CONTACLESS SEALS OPTIONS
  • EXTRA LIGHT WEIGHT, LOW NOISE LEVEL DUE TO OUTER HDPE SHELL

Other information about the product

Rulmeca is proud to introduce the new TOP roller, a totally thermoplastic roller with the exception of the steel in the ball bearing and the shaft.

The new TOP roller has a lower weight with respect to a steel roller (about 50%), which means a lower power consumption during start/stop operation of the belt conveyor and therefore reduction of power requirements on the plant, easier mounting/maintenance operations, preventing back injuries of the operator and guaranteeing a safer intervention, especially in application where roller mounting or replacement might be critical (suspended belt conveyor, difficult access, long conveyors…), easier/cheaper transportation

Furthermore the low level of abrasion and corrosion of this roller (wear resistant) guarantees a longer life of the roller and a lower maintenance of the whole plant.

The TOP is belt friendly, since HDPE tube will not wear the belt high resistance to chemical agents. It doesn’t rust, it is suitable for a wide variety of applications and it has a low noise emission (due to thermoplastic noise absorption).

Thanks to the self-cleaning roller surface, there is a prevention of build up of material, main cause of belt mis-tracking and less spillage from the belt.

The roller low running resistance sealing system means a lower motor torque need in conveyor starts, a lower motor power size, a reduction of energy consumption of the belt conveyor (added effect to that of the lower weight) and a lower belt consumption.
