Engineering solutions designed for use within the aggregate and mining industry requires extreme reliability, often under arduous conditions. With slurry, aggregate and particulate matter being processed, a full-fill suspension unit has obvious benefits over a partially filled insert unit and the benefits of tensioning conveyor belts can provide improved reliability and reduced costs.

Foreign Matter Ingress

When dealing with loads consisting almost exclusively of particulate or liquid matter, engineers must be aware of the threat that foreign matter ingress into components may cause. Lengthy downtime to carry out maintenance to any component will incur unnecessary maintenance costs and, even when not catastrophic to the functioning of the system, inefficiency costs can mount up over time. The cost of not acting upon these potential propblems must all be weighed up against the cost of putting in place a reliable solution which is resistant to ingress. We have many years of experience supplying components to aggregate machinery and this is one major reason why we are conscious of the pitfalls of improper component selection. We would always recommend the use of a sealed suspension/torque damping unit which is completely resistant to foreign matter ingress due to a full-fill construction. Our semi bonded and fully bonded rubber suspension/torque damping units, both offer full-fill construction and choosing between these is dependent upon load mass, deflection characteristics required and budget.

Equipment Protection

Our semi bonded and fully bonded rubber suspension/torque damping units can be engineered to bespoke requirements and this means not only changing the dimensions and specifications (splining, bonding etc.) of the unit, but also the density and characteristics of the rubber within. Our units can be engineered to a desired spring deflection capacity and their naturally low frequency offers good detuning of the often high excitation frequency created by conveyor and shaker systems, meaning the machine structure and supporting elements remain protected from continuous and harsh vibrations.

Conveyor Tensioning

Our tensioning units ensure that continuous contact pressure is placed on the chain/belt and thus ensure the chain/belt has an increased contact arc, eliminating jumping of the chain links and producing a taut and almost silent slack side – all whilst reducing wear on bearings and rollers. Our units provide a maintenance free solution with a long service life meaning minimal disruption to service once installed. Installing a belt damping system can also increase the service life of the belt itself as harsh vibrations and belt slippages can cause unnecessary wear and reduce serviceable life. Fitting a tensioner device can virtually eliminate all negatives vibrations and belt slippages and even improve energy efficiency, as up to 15% of electrical energy is wasted in belt slippage.

Bespoke Engineering

We understand that the immense variety of layouts, components and configurations within the aggregate industry, a standardised solution is rarely one which is applicable to many situations. That’s why we place such emphasis upon bespoke engineering of solutions. Our engineers will use our principle components and their expert knowledge to produce a solution engineered specifically for a customer’s requirement whilst being aware of environmental, mechanical and budgetary constraints.
