WEARCO have over 40 years combined knowledge and experience in the field of materials handling, engineering design and installation and conveyor component selection and installation. WEARCO manufacture a comprehensive range of primary and secondary belt cleaners/scrapers, return belt ploughs, belt training devices and skirt containment systems.
IN THIS SECTION
WEARCO NSW supply conveyor idlers, impact idlers and return belt idlers assemblies, through such manufactures as DRC Rollers, Prok Group, and Tyton Idlers, and Special roller configurations.
WEARCO NSW supply polymer rollers. These rollers are a new generation, heavy duty alternative to steel rollers. The rollers are constructed of glass-filled fibre, high density, polyethylene (HDPE), which has proven to substantially outlast steel rollers.
The significant advantages which apply to applications utilising Poly Conveyor Rollers are:
- Less damage to belting in event of roller collapse.
- Noise reduction of poly surface up to 9dba reduction over conventional steel rollers.
- Wear resistant.
- Reduced material build up upon roller shell.
- Up to 50% lighter than conventional idlers.
Belt Cleaning Systems
During the past twenty years there has been significant improvements made in major component design and efficiency of operation for belt cleaning systems. WEARCO NSW has identified the need to ensure high equipment availability is maintained with belt cleaning systems which deliver an effective high percentage of material carry back removal whilst maintaining a simple approach to maintenance and accessibility.
WEARCO Head Scraper
WEARCO Head Pulley conveyor belt cleaners are designed especially for the high-cycle, high-speed vulcanized and clipped belts used in the mining and quarry industry, coal-fired power plants, coal loading facilities and coal preparation plants. The WEARCO engineered scraper is designed to offer high conveyor belt cleaning efficiency, reduced maintenance and superior durability.
Urethane Blades. The primary cleaner blades are constructed from 90 duro polyurethane material for increased blade life with an effective useable blade tip depth of 60mm. The easy to see Coloured Built-in Blade Wear Gauge ensures the active cleaning tip, which is colour-coded orange, will make it easy to see when blade replacement is required. The 200mm wide blade segments quickly conform to the contours of the belt and maintain full blade-to-belt contact for continuous cleaning through a mechanically adjusted torque arm arrangement. Additionally, a spring self tensioning arrangement can be adopted to suit all models.
WEARCO Secondary Scraper
WEARCO’s Secondary conveyor belt cleaners are designed especially for high-speed vulcanized and clipped belts used in the mining and quarry industry as well as coal-fired power plants, coal loading facilities and coal preparation plants. The WEARCO engineered scraper is designed to offer high conveyor belt cleaning efficiency and reduced maintenance.
The secondary cleaner blades are constructed from 90 duro polyurethane material for increased blade life with an effective useable blade tip depth of 30mm. The easy to see Coloured Built-in Blade Wear Gauge, which is colour-coded orange, will make it easy to see when blade replacement is required. The 150mm wide blade segments quickly conform to the contours of the belt and maintain full blade-to-belt contact for continuous cleaning through a mechanically adjusted torque arm arrangement. Additionally, a spring self tensioning arrangement can be adopted to suit all models.
The WEARCO Belt clear assemblies are suitable for conveyor belt widths up to 1200mm wide and belt speeds of 4.5 m/sec as standard design. For applications where belt width or speeds are greater, our qualified service representatives will inspect and provide recommendations based upon the clients requirements.
WEARCO Belt cleaners can be retrofitted in most cases to existing structure and head chutes with minimal modification to exiting plant. The life of WEARCO Poly blades will vary upon the material being conveyed and moisture content retained in the material. Similar the effectiveness of the cleaners will vary upon moisture containment within the material and surface condition of the belt.
Return Belt Ploughs
In many conveying applications, material spillage which is carried back on the top side of the return belt will pass between the tail pulley and belting which causes excessive belt tracking issues. Where large product lump size is evident, damage through puncturing the belt can occur.Where small dust material build up has occurred, this can increase the diameter of the tail pulley and subsequently incur belt tracking issues.
WEARCO have the WEARTUFF Plough arrangement to be positioned prior to the tail pulley on the inside of the belt towards the direction of belt travel. This arrangement will clean fine materials and remove larger lump product. The plough has an adjustment turnbuckle arrangement to reduce the potential of blades scalping the belt.
WEARCO Impact Cradle / Skirt Containment
The strongest and most complete construction for installing Impact areas is to use a Mounting Cradle. This replaces existing impact idlers. The sides of the cradle can be manufactured to articulate, making the installation of the system and replacement of worn-out impact bars and Impact idler assemblies simple and quick. The belt edge is given the support required to allow skirt sealing system to work in the optimum way.
The side assemblies are standard as a fixed angle to suit existing impact idler replacement to the exact profile, however side assemblies can be designed as an adjustable unit upon request.
Additionally WEARCO have designed an improved curved saddle assembly which incorporates full length Impact Bars that have a low friction cap as standard.
WEARCO NSW supplies an extensive range of drive and non-drive pulleys for replacement or new capital project works. Shaft configuration is either welded shaft or locking assembly arrangement. Crowned, Flat and Self Cleaning styles are available. Bearings supplied are plumber block type housings and, unless otherwise required, sealing is felt seal. Labyrinth and Tachonite seals are available.
Pulley lagging is selected based upon the application. As a general rule, drive pulleys are a flat faced diamond pattern, Bend Pulleys, GTU and Tail Pulleys are crowned with plain lagging. Live shaft or dead shaft assemblies are available and are selected based upon the application.
