Impact Bars

Conveyor loading areas are multi-functioning, but when it comes to transporting products along the line, they must all deliver one crucial component — support.

Any sag, belt damage or damage to the conveyor loading area, then productivity is likely going to take a hit. This can result in missed timelines and reduced profit margins.

Standard & Custom Impact Bars For Conveyor Loading Areas

At West River Conveyors, we specialize in fabricating ultra-high molecular polyethylene (UHMWPE) impact bars, a compound specifically designed for anti-friction and impact absorption.

Impact bars are best suited at conveyor transfer and feed points, as well as loading points, to reduce the risk of damage to the conveyor line itself and ensuring that productivity goals can be met.

West River carries impact bars in 60” standard lengths, but we can manufacture sizes to meet your needs. If that’s not what your application calls for, custom options are also available, and impact bars can be ordered to any specific length.

All impact bars are outfitted in 1.5” thick UHMWPE wear top layer, 2.5” rubber absorption section, and heavy-duty steel fabricated structural frame.

If you aren’t sure which product is best for your conveyor, a West River associate will help get you there.

Impact Bars At Transfer, Feed & Loading Points

Transfer stations and loading points can become problematic, leading to frequent spillage and dust accumulation. With that being said, impact bars don’t just reduce the risk — and consequences — of damage, but they offer a host of other advantages as well.

Benefits of impact bars for conveyor structure include:

  • Increased durability
  • Less wear and tear
  • Shock absorption from material impact
  • Belt life extension
  • Enabling heavier loading points
  • Impact resistance

Impact Bars For Long-Lasting, Reliable Support

Are you tearing through conveyor belts at a faster than normal pace?

Is your belt sagging from carrying too much weight?

Are your maintenance costs increasing year after year?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any one of these questions, then it might be time to consider purchasing or upgrading your impact bars. And while you’re at it, ask us about impact beds, too. Together, these conveyor loading area accessories will have your line running efficiently while reducing costly downtimes.
