Depending on the industry, environment and requirements of any given application, there are many different methods of transferring power from main supply to machine. But no matter what the layout of the drivetrain, there will always be some solutions that offer smoother integration and better efficiency than others.
A global conveyor supplier required torque overload protection on screw conveyors used at a power plant in Indonesia. The conveyors move waste material, provided by local suppliers, to and from the facility’s furnaces. The unmonitored material being transferred often contains large pieces of steel and concrete that could cause jams and possibly damage the conveyor’s screw element.
A major steel producer needed a backstopping clutch for use on an inclined conveyor that feeds coal into a coke oven at one of their Midwestern mills.
A Formsprag Model HSB 700 clutch, with a torque capacity of 5,000 lb.ft. (6800 Nm), was selected to meet the requirements of this application.
