ASGCO's EXHD Tru-Trainer upgraded for high tonnage and high speed applications

ASGCO has announced that its range of tracking idlers has been improved for high tonnage and high speed applications in bulk shipping applications.

The company's line of Tru-Trainer conveyor tracking idlers now includes an extra heavy duty (EXHD) line to accommodate high speed and tonnage. The tapered ends detect potential belt alignment issues and initiate instant tracking corrections, without the need for edge contact rollers.

A seize-proof external central pivot mechanism was designed, removing the need for a single, large drum and enabling a concentric and balanced rotation to be achieved. This patented proprietary design also makes EXHD Tru-Trainer idlers suitable for reversing belt applications.

Developed to accommodate the excessive forces encountered with wide belt widths and heavy loads, the EXHD Return idlers can accommodate conveyor belt speeds that exceed 800 fpm (4m/s) and/or greater than 1500 PIW. This integrated design also extends bearing life.

Jeff Jurasits, Vice President, said:"With the effectiveness of our line of Tru-Trainer conveyor tracking idlers, it was natural to develop a variation that could handle the intense demands of high speed and high tonnage operations in a more rugged environment. We designed the EXHD Tru-Trainers for those exact specifications and have seen tremendous results in virtually every application. The EXHD version incorporates rollers that withstand even the most abrasive conditions while continuing to provide excellent coefficient of friction with the conveyor belt."
