Friction Drive Conveyors
The clutch system is maintenance free! Guarding protects against alien objects that could cause damage and perspex inspection windows allow visual inspection.
Trials have proven that any component within the clutch system can be replaced within 15 minutes meeting standard MTTR requirements.
The equivalent chain or belt driven conveyor will require tensioning or replacement once over stretched and will use sprockets and belt wheels that will wear over time.
Key components are manufactured to last reducing spares consumption and stock holding.
The clutch system has been in the field for 35 years and feedback indicates that an average life cycle of twenty years is consistently achieved.
Components of up to 2500kgs and speeds of up to 20m/min can be accommodated with standard parts reducing the need for bespoke solutions.
