ASGCO introduces a new patent pending design for confined spaces

Published by
World Coal,

ASGCO® has introduced its new patent pending One-Sided Slide-lers™, which provides the ability to change idler rolls under the conveyor loading skirt area without having to remove adjacent belt idlers. This allows the One-Sided Slide-ler™ to fit into tight or confined spaces, ensuring proper belt rolling support and ease of change out.

The new ASGCO One-Sided Slide-ler™ is a modular designed product that allows users to remove the wing and centre roll hangers for easy replacement of idler rolls. It can also be designed to hold any manufacturer roll in the industry. The One-Sided Slide-ler™ minimises down time and can be accessed from either side of the conveyor system.

For environments with extreme access limitations, the new product is designed to be maintained from just one side of the conveyor system. This is ideal for systems with access on one side only, where a conveyor is located against the wall or high in the air with catwalk on one side. This enables rolls replacement with minimal downtime and eliminate the need for man lifts or having to work in a confined space.

The new product is ideal for coal-fired power plants, hard rock mining, steel mills, iron ore, aggregate and mineral (phosphate, potash, salt) mining.

It is ideal for confined spaces, improves safety, meets all CEMA Standards and has a total satisfaction guarantee (TSG).

Key features include:

  • Frames only take up 8 in. (200 mm) of width when using 6 in. (150 mm) rollers.
  • Allows for easy replacement of rollers in any environment.
  • Compatible with all manufacturer rollers.
  • One-sided model for limited access applications.
  • Available for any belt width, troughing angle or idler.
