STEPHENS-ADAMSON - new conveying
tension, lowering operating costs. Reducing energy consumption.
lowering capital costs, and increasing capacity.
Therefore, in traditional three-roll configuration,
these rolls are much larger than required only for the
convenience of inventory control. In the ESIdler™ or
Super ESIdler™ configuration, all four rolls are
lower rated and their design capacity is more efficiently
utilized. The lower rated rolls offer another spin off
benefit. A smaller diameter shaft means a smaller sealing
area thereby reducing the opportunities for contaminants
to make their way into the bearings. ESIdler™ and
Super ESIdler™ also offer the opportunity to increase
the capacity of existing conveyors. Reduced belt tensions
and optimized idler roll loading mean more tonnage can
be handled on the same conveyor without the need to upgrade
to larger idlers or a higher strength belt. The benefit
list also includes reduced material spillage because of
reduced belt sag, protection of light belts at the junction
of the center and concentrator rolls… The number
of possible benefits is endless.
