Rulmeca Rollers for Bulk Handling

Rulmeca subjects their roller designs to severe laboratory tests to ensure they guarantee an adequate working life that maintains a high quality performance throughout. The lifespan and efficiency of such rollers depends greatly on an accurate manufacturing process combined with selected high quality materials.

The engineers at Rulmeca place particular importance on the sealing system that protects the roller bearings, which has a significant influence on the efficiency levels of bulk handling roller products. There is also the issue of ensuring optimal operational capacity even in the most severe environmental conditions, which Rulmeca has ensured their products are capable of since the beginning. These days the Rulmeca bulking handling rollers are used for so many different material handling tasks in conveyor machinery and equipment in industries all around the world.

Rulmeca Bulk Handling Roller Products

The Rulmeca PSV rollers are their standard designs which are suitable for most bulk handling applications. Their shaft diameters range from 20 to 40mm, with a tube diameter range between 63 and 194 mm. Their usual applications include mines, quarries, cement works, coal-fired power plants and dock installations.

Their impact roller designs consist of a basic steel PSV roller design, but with additional fitted rings which are designed to resist and absorb the shocks and impact of materials landing on the belts.

Rulmeca also manufacture numerous return rollers including one design that helps eliminate any build-up of excess detritus in the belt centre. Another return roller design features helical rubber rings which reduce the deposit of material by operating on the dirty side of the belt, which also helps support the belt when the load consists of viscous material. A third return roller design features a helical steel cage which serves a similar purpose as the helical rubber rings but is better suited to heavier duty applications.
