Conveyor system backstops are industrial devices that are designed to protect inclined conveyors from the dangers of gravity-accelerated reverse runaways. Backstops are designed to be used as a safety mechanism to prevent roll-offs or catastrophic system failures.
Backstops are crucial components of a safe and functional mechanical operation. If a drive pulley has failed and the belt needs to be stopped immediately, your conveyor’s backstop will kick into operation and stop the system right away.
If you are looking to replace your system’s backstops, West River Conveyors can help.
At West River Conveyors, we offer a variety of conveyor belt backstops to our customers. These backstops can protect your machinery from high-speed reversals which can significantly damage your belts and motors. Backstops are also crucial at protecting workers from potential injuries by effectively halting the load when a failure occurs.
