Superior's new mine duty conveyor pulley will debut at CONEXPO-CON/AGG
Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, will show a brand new conveyor drum pulley at booth C31389 during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. It’s one of a dozen new products the company will introduce during the Las Vegas trade show in March.
Known as the Prime™ Mine Duty Pulley, this drum style conveyor pulley is manufactured in diameters from 4” to 30” and face widths of 12” to 78” (x). It’s designed and built with a solid steel end disc, which eliminates welding at the hub of the pulley. Applications for the new pulley include aggregate and mine duty conveyors using fabric belts, which start and stop under full loads frequently.
“Our Prime Mine Duty Pulley has many of the same design characteristics of Mine Duty 2.0 and Super Duty drum pulleys, but its optimized design yields a lower weight,” says Alan Schmidgall, a vice president with Superior. “That means we can offer a more economically-friendly option and include many of the features our customers said they require.”
The Prime Mine Duty Pulley is one of four standard, pre-engineered conveyor pulley models available from Superior. Other designs include CEMA, Mine Duty 2.0 and Super Duty. Superior offers custom-engineered pulleys from its Core Systems® Design team.
