The Problem

A port facility conveying coal and located off the west coast of Canada was experiencing roll failure from their conveyor idlers. The life span of the idlers was reduced due to a high pressure wash down procedure causing damage to the seals of the rolls.

The Solution

The Link-Belt ES series idler featuring a patented seal design was installed for testing. This idler was engineered and manufactured for extreme conditions within the oil sands industry. The Link-Belt idlers easily withstood the high-pressure spray and extended the life of rolls for this wet application.
