When an operation is working at full speed the last thing it needs to worry about is the performance and reliability of the conveyor belt rollers.

“It is surprising how much of the noise from bulk material handling systems is generated by rollers,” says Mark Colbourn, managing director at Flexco.

“Whether it be noise regulations in your local area, or the risk of exposing workers to dangerous elevated noise levels, reducing the noise of the conveyor roller is vital to your operations safety and efficiency.”

CoreTech Nylon rollers produce approximately 10dB less noise than equivalent steel rollers, reducing the possibility of receiving an expensive noise violation that can cut into both profit and production.

They also last significantly longer than steel rollers in most applications.

“With ultra-light construction, up to 60 percent lighter than equivalent steel rollers, CoreTech rollers maintain durability in the toughest environments without sacrificing performance,” Mr Colbourn said.

Lighter weight rollers make for quicker and less-costly installation and reduce the risk of worker injury.”

Seal design and effectiveness are both key to the success of the bearing, and therefore the success of the roller.

The centrifugal seal of the CoreTech roller is specifically designed to rotate with the roller, generating centrifugal force.

“This helps to ‘spin out’ fines, water, and other contaminants, effectively preventing trapped material from damaging the bearing,” Mr Colbourn says.

Tough, durable, lightweight, heavy-duty CoreTech nylon rollers will keep your operation up and running productively and safely for longer.
