Regardless of whether it is coal, sand, cement or other bulk materials, loose granular materials are conveyed particularly efficiently with belt conveyor systems. The conveyor belt is guided by belt rollers for smooth operation. In the task area of the conveyor belt, buffer ring rollers are used to cushion the impacts caused by coarse conveyed material. In the return run of the belt, support ring rollers are used to support the belt and help conveyed material adhering to the conveyor belt to fall off more easily. With special seals, the rollers can also be used in dusty environments. Her FMG Förderelemente Mecklenburg GmbH from Körchow supplies high-quality conveyor rollers that perfect for transporting bulk goods are suitable. Buffer and support rings can be attached as accessories to any product in the FMG castor portfolio in order to To support belt and thus absorb the falling energy of the conveyed goods. Depending on the individual application, different support ring shapes and arrangements are advantageous. We would be happy to inform you about the desired solutions for your conveyor system.
