New Roller Solves Belt Carryback Problems

Superior Industries offers a new solution for removing carryback material from the return side of a conveyor belt system—the Urathon Beater Roll. The unit’s design couples a common, CEMA-rated return idler and a series of urethane lobed discs; in operation, these discs cause mild 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, preassembled idlers or individual urethane-lobed discs. Each disc is coupled with a hose clamp for assembly onto existing idlers in the fi eld. The discs are manufactured to fi t to CEMA C and D class return idlers in diameters of 4, 5 and 6 in.
