Superior Industries offers a new solution for removing carryback material from the return side of a conveyor belt system. Carryback material, said the manufacturer, is one of the leading causes of extraordinary conveyor maintenance.
Named the Urathon Beater Roll, the design couples a common, CEMA-rated return idler and a series of urethane lobed discs. In operation, these discs cause light vibration, which dislodges carryback material from the conveyor belt. According to the manufacturer, ideal installation locations include above a stockpile, screen or bin so 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. The discs are manufactured to fit to CEMA C and D class return idlers in diameters of 4-, 5- and 6-in.
