Carryback material, one of the leading causes of extraordinary conveyor maintenance, can now be removed economically from the conveyor belt with a new solution from Superior Industries, Inc., a major U.S.-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems.
The new solution from Superior Industries, the Urathon Beater Roll removes carryback material from the return side of a conveyor belt system. The Urathon features a common CEMA rated return idler and a series of urethane lobed discs, which cause light vibration to dislodge the carryback material from the conveyor belt. The Urathon Beater Rolls are recommended for installation above a stockpile, screen or bin so that the ejected material hits a target point.
Urathon Beater Rolls can be purchased as full, pre-assembled idlers or individual urethane lobed discs. Each disc is coupled with a hose clamp for assembly onto existing idlers in the field and manufactured to fit to CEMA C and D class return idlers in diameters of 4 inches, 5 inches and 6 inches.
