The harsh demands of the quarry and aggregate industry can cause serious damage to conveyor systems. To prevent abusive material and conditions from hindering the productivity of quarry operations, ASGCO has developed Quarry Duty Impact Beds. Featuring robust powder-coated steel supports and impact-absorbing rails, the Quarry Duty Impact Bed will withstand the most extreme abuse and keep operations moving.
Available in several configurations, ASGCO’s Quarry Duty Impact Beds will also reduce spillage and control dust in the load zone by dampening impact. The efficient design can be easily and safely installed in virtually any load zone. Ideal for aggregate quarries, cement, wood processing, recycling and mineral (phosphate, potash, salt, frac sand) mining.
