New Split-Speedup-Spools for Line-shaft Conveyors
Quickly increases conveyor speed by 44%. Installs in seconds. Saves labor and energy. Reduces downtime and noise. Extends belt life.
Hilliard, Ohio - New Split-Speedup-Spool for Line-shaft Conveyors quickly replaces standard line-shaft spools. Increases conveyor speed by 44%. Eliminates the need to disassemble the conveyor to replace spools and spacer tubes. Has the same length on the shaft as regular spools, so it is a drop-in replacement for them. Saves hours of labor and conveyor downtime. Fits TGW Ermanco's steel spool connectors. Colored bright green for safety - lets you see at a glance which conveyor zones are moving faster.
Parts fit together evenly, so there are no edges that can abrade line-shaft belts. High concentricity provides very efficient rotation, which reduces rolling resistance, thereby saving energy and extending drive belt life.
Alignment notches on one side allow installation by feel alone, so part can be quickly installed behind frames or guards -- even in the dark. Tight snap-fit means no screws to tighten or lose. Will not fall off shaft.
Made from Delrin® 500P. Operates at higher temperatures and wears longer than most spools made from other plastics. Quiet operation -- will not squeak. Fits both 1" and 25mm line-shafts. Reasonably priced.
