GRASSHOPPER CONVEYOR FEATURES
Conveyor Truss – The conveyor truss consists of heavy-duty lattice structure framework that is lightweight and strong. Striker conveyors are constructed from welded steel angle and bolted connections to provide greater capacity. The conveyors also have the ability for the end sections to fold for improved transportability.
Conveyor Belt & Related Items – The conveyor belt consists of multiple layers of reinforced nylon ply encased of rubber covers, with the carry side providing the thicker cover for longer wear life. Bolt up type take up rods allow the ability to tension and loosen the belt with the adjusting taking place on the tail pulley shaft located in heavy duty bearings on slide rails. The head and tail pulleys fabricated and machined from nominal pipe according to Striker standards and specifications required and lagged to provide greater traction to the belt. With the choice of electric or hydraulic drive, each are enclosed and weatherproofed with transmissions to suit.
Supplied on all Striker conveyors are two belt scrapers which each have easily replaceable rubber blades. One scraper is positioned at the head end of the conveyor scraping the dirty side of the belt while the other is a vee type situated just before the tail pulley preventing spilt material from becoming caught between the belt and tail pulley. The conveyor is fully guarded to mines department regulations.
Idlers – Three roll trough idlers are the main carrying idlers on the conveyor. The number off these is dependent on the length of the conveyor, but otherwise they are equally spaced up the truss (optional adjustable transition idlers are also available). Positioned at the tail, underneath the receival hopper, are impact idlers. These help with absorbing some of the shock taken from loading. On the return side of the belt, suitable sized return steel rolls are strategically placed on the underside of the conveyor and have individual easy replacement properties.
Mobility & Stockpiling Information – All conveyors are easily positioned in and out for your production depending on transfer length requirement. With simply adjustments of discharge heights a more accurate and on target feeding occurs. The engineered truss extends conveyor life and withstands constant re-positioning. Adjustable tail support keeps conveyor clear from damaging debris.
