Conveyor spool

Article-Conveyor spool

A new split spool for line-shaft conveyors replaces standard, one-piece line-shaft spools and eliminates the need to disassemble the conveyor to replace spools, saving labor and conveyor downtime. High concentricity provides very efficient rotation, which reduces rolling resistance and thereby conserves energy and extends drive belt life, says the co. The spools can be installed clutch action-style or by being locked to the shaft with double-sided tape and are made from Delrin® 500P, which is said to perform at higher temperatures and wear longer than most plastics.
