Rope Tensioning Device suits aero mechanical conveyors.

Rope Tensioning Device suits aero mechanical conveyors.

Automatic rope tensioning and monitoring device helps increase rope life by up to 40% in aero mechanical conveyors, which operate by means of continuous wire rope with spaced polyurethane discs moving within steel tube. At each end, rope assembly runs around sprockets. Rope travel sets up air stream that fluidizes and conveys product to outlet where it is centrifugally ejected. This enables...

Quick Release Couplings have self-venting capabilities.

Quick Release Couplings have self-venting capabilities.

Bi-Tec Series quick release couplings utilize combination of sliding valve and quick lock mechanism. With pressure-less coupling, only resistance is force of spring. Pushing blue sliding valve forward allows pressure to build up, and venting process starts when sliding sleeve is moved into home position. Available in industry standard sizes, products can be manufactured out of brass, steel,...
