Reengineered Transporter Conveying System Moves Heavier Loads with Less Cost by Eliminating the Need for Lubrication Plus Air Consumption Reduction

Port Royal PA -­ The rugged-duty "SLUGGER" Model 850B Transporter Conveying System, by Vibro Industries (Vibro), has been reengineered to provide several distinct benefits that improve quality and reduce operating costs.

First, the Slugger 850B now provides 100% Oil-less Operation and is 100% Air Operated (no springs). This model has a smaller profile and is lighter in weight (47 lbs./ 21.3 kg) when compared to earlier models. The Model 850B moves load capacities of more than 500 lbs. (255.8 kg) plus 100 lbs. (45.3 kg) of tray weight. It features low 3.4 CFM** air consumption (certified at half the air consumption of other models) and offers a variable 15 to 40 ft/min. (4.5-12 M/min.) feed rate. This means multiple trays can be mounted to a single unit, replacing several conventional belt conveyors.

The reengineered Model 850B also features a stainless steel bore liner; self-contained, self-cleaning wiper mechanism (to keep rails clean); totally enclosed body to protect mechanical components from harsh environments; longer-lasting bearings; air regulator and filter; and stainless steel sleeves for longer life. Best of all, the Model 850B costs no more today than it did in 1994, providing exceptional value.
