How to Choose the Right Scrapers for Your Conveyor Belt

When properly set up, the right scrapers will extend the life of your conveyor belts while reducing maintenance and cleaning. Conversely, scrapers that are badly adjusted or not suited to the material being moved will wear the belt faster, limit the lifespan of your belts and leave the area around the conveyor dirtier than it […]

How to Choose Reducer/Gearbox Parts

Your conveyor relies on many different parts and components to transport various materials from one point to another. Materials transported by a conveyor may include: Sand Gravel Gold Silver Sugar Wood Paper Zinc Ideally, each conveyor component combines to form one “well-oiled machine”, reaching the desired levels of efficiency. However, if just one part isn’t […]

How To Choose The Right Conveyor Backstop

Conveyor backstops protect inclined conveyors from gravity, notably when it comes to accelerated reverse runway. Backstops are safety mechanisms that stop product rollback on a stopped conveyor or drive failure. This is particularly important on fully loaded belt, as accelerated material will spill and create substantial liabilities or catastrophic damage to critical conveyor components. Essentially, […]
