Superior offers carryback material removal solution
By Andrew Macklin
May 2, 2016 – Superior Industries, Inc. offers a new solution for removing carryback material from the return side of a conveyor belt system. Carryback material 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 Superior, 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 urethne-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-inches, 5-inches and 6-inches.
