A fundamental component of the conveyor system are the idler frames.
If they are not well profiled and positioned, the belt is at increased risk of misalignment.
Misalignment can lead to uneven wear and damage to the conveyor belt itself, or disastrous material spillage. It’s a costly productivity issue to have – and it often stems from poor frame set-up.
Designed by the engineers at Kinder Australia, the K-Retractable Idler/Impact Frame and K- HD Retractable Impact Frame allows conveyor rollers to be changed under conveyor transfer loading chutes without the idler frames being laid down or removed.
The bottom bracket remains aligned while the upper bracket of the base is retracted, exiting from the side.
The K-Retractable Idler/Impact Frames cover all belt widths and trough angles, inline or offset configurations, and are suitable for all bulk material handling applications.
The K-HD Retractable Impact Frames are applicable for high-capacity bulk material handling industries, including the toughest quarrying and mining applications.
