The force of the impact generated when large sized material falls from height can damage the conveyor belt and idlers in the impact area. By providing cushioned support at the load point, the impact of material between adjacent rollers prevents the belt buckling, and allows a continuous skirt line to be maintained which dramatically reduces material spillage. Each impact bar has a top manufactured in low friction UHMWPE designed to minimise belt-bar drag and is assembled on a rubber cushion to absorb the impact, which are typically mounted on a steel support cradle type arrangement. A full range of sizes are available – we would be pleased to help you with your enquiry.
Benefits of using impact bars:
- Significantly reduces impact damage to belts.
- Minimises material spillage.
- 60º Sh.A shore hard rubbers to absorb the impact.
- Modular construction for easy installation.
