Interroll Rollers Reduce Noise in Gravity Conveyor Applications

WILMINGTON, N.C. (November 19, 2003) - Enhancing its line of non-motorized conveyor components, Interroll Corporation provides quiet commercial rollers for gravity conveyor applications. Equipped with nylon housing and commercial grade ball bearings, Interroll rollers can reduce noise in gravity conveyor operations to help meeting strict OSHA noise standards (currently 85dB).

"There is more emphasis today on reducing noise in the workplace," said Interroll Conveyor Components Product Manager, Kim Hagan. "Traditionally, gravity conveyor systems are utilitarian and noisy. Fortunately, with today's new materials and technology, rollers can be quiet, efficient and economical.

In order to minimize the noise associated with friction and starting resistance, Interroll's lightweight and free-rolling 1700 Universal Roller Series offers commercial bearings that are housed in nylon. Available in 1.90", 2.50", 3.15" and 3.50", with tubes manufactured in a variety of materials, including steel, stainless steel and PVC, these rollers feature hexagonal and round shafts available in fixed, spring-loaded, threaded, or tapped end mounting. Since the ball bearings are also available in stainless steel, Interroll's 1700 series gravity conveyor rollers can be used in virtually every conveying application for non powered rollers.
