Special Features & Benefits
Rigid Rail Structure
Rigid Rail Structure comes in both floor and roof mount designs and is made with mine-duty idlers and components. West River’s heavy-duty powder-coated structural steel increases the longevity of the product and improves corrosion resistance. This type of structure is available for 36” up to 72” belt widths. The idlers attach to the steel frame using bolt-on, clamped or pin and cuff components. Rigid rail structure is known for its easy and quick installation. Depending on speed and tonnage requirements, rigid rail structure comes in CEMA B through CEMA E+ arrangements. Rigid rail is available in either a single beam or box frame design.
West River’s line of Catenary Structure is portable and easy to install. The idlers are hooked into saddle brackets that are either welded or bolted onto the stringer pipe and rest right into the bracket so that it does not move. This type of structure is ideal for those who are looking for an affordable, good alternative to rigid rail and need convenience and portability. Like rigid rail, catenary structure is available in floor or roof mount designs, is made with heavy-duty structural steel and is powder-coated to increase longevity of the product and improve corrosion resistance.
Wire Rope Structure
West River’s wire rope troughing idlers and returns are designed to be mounted to wire rope in place of channel steel frames, using clamps. Wire rope structure is portable and easy to install. Great for replacement of existing wire rope systems.
