Superior Industries Inc., a manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, revealed a new look for its well-known Chevron Wing Pulley at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2023.
The CEMA-rated model is now designed and manufactured without a rounded cap on the wings.
"Users are going to get the same benefits of the original design, but the CEMA class gets a bit of a price reduction without that rounded bar," said Mary Erholz, vice president of marketing and conveying product manager at Superior. "It's also going to increase the service life of Chevron Pulleys, since the bare wings offer so much more wearable material."
The v-shaped Chevron Pulley revolutionized expectations for wing performance after being invented by Superior in 2007. Traditional straight wing pulleys were always prone to trapping material, bending prematurely and notorious for damaging conveyor belting, according to Superior.
The Chevron Pulley's benefits:
- Deflects oncoming fugitive material
- Fewer rocks trapped between wings
- No trapped rocks to puncture belting
- Constant contact between pulley and belt reduces noise
- Less abusive to belt splices and clips
CEMA Duty Chevron Pulleys are manufactured in diameters up to 36-in. and face widths up to 78-in. Mine Duty, Super Duty and custom engineered classes are also available.
