Revolutionizing the conveyor idler market

Revolutionizing the conveyor idler market

(Posted on 14/01/20)

Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S. based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, will revolutionize the conveyor idler market when it introduces a group of application-specific idlers seals at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. They’re one of a dozen new products the company will introduce in booth C31389.

“These next-generation SpinGuard Idler Seals will offer greater protection in applications known to expose bearings to fugitive material prematurely,” says Paul Schmidgall, the chief engineer of Superior’s conveyor components division. “We tested dozens of seal iterations over more than five years of and we think we have some pretty robust options.”

Superior says it now offers four application-specific conveyor idler seals:

  • SpinGuard Wet Seal: Applications experiencing unsatisfactory idler life due to high moisture. Common conditions include wet processing, frequent washdowns and dredging.
  • SpinGuard Dry Seal: Operations that produce dust near crushing or screening equipment.
  • SpinGuard Low Drag Seal: For conveyor owners concerned about horsepower. Eco-friendly idlers designed with low drag seal for overland or long-distance conveying.
  • SpinGuard Titanium™ Seal: For the most extreme conditions including wet and slurry applications.

Each class of seal will be easily recognized by a unique colour: Wet Seals are blue, Dry are ivory, Low Drag are green and the Titanium Seal is silver. Superior says lead times for these application-specific idler seals can be equal to their day-to-day, industry-leading production response times.

Superior will launch a dozen new products for crushing, screening, washing and conveying applications. Displayed equipment will include the brand new Sentry™ Horizontal Shaft Impact (HSI) crusher, Fusion™ Modular Platform, belt drive Valor Vertical Shaft Impact (VSI) crusher, bolted model Liberty Jaw Crusher, Alliance® Low Water Washer and Portable Spirit Wash Plant. Additional equipment with new features include the Anthem Inclined Screen, gear drive Valor Vertical Shaft Impact (VSI) crusher, P500 Patriot® Cone Crusher, Aggredry Dewatering Washer and TeleStacker Conveyor. Additionally, aftermarket solutions including new conveyor idlers, pulleys and accessories, plus crushing rotors, cone bushings, cone heads and jaw dies will be displayed alongside a multimedia experience showcasing several turnkey projects completed by the company’s construction management division.
