Multinational manufacturer SureGuide Australia has partnered with All Torque Transmissions to deliver to market one of the highest quality conveyor tracking products available. Using experience garnered from the South African mining industry (the world’s leading producer of chrome, platinum, vanadium and manganese and third largest coal exporter), SureGuide has helped a multitude of customers with their high-quality conveyor belt tracking units.
Requiring no more maintenance than standard idler frames, the Troughing SureGuide (TSG) is a mechanical frame which immediately responds to belt misalignment. Designed to accommodate belt widths ranging from 600mm to 2100mm, the TSG also fits to existing structures which assists in decreasing the cost burden.
As the belt drifts off centre it comes into contact with one of the side sensor arms. As the belt forces the arm outward the frame is misaligned by means of a direct mechanical linkage between sensor arm and frame. As one arm moves outward the other will move inward, but the “inward arm” will never touch the belt. The misaligned frame is pivoted on a central pin with a bearing ball used to allow easy movement and to handle the load.
The amount of frame misalignment required to move a belt is rarely more than 4 degrees. Therefore the pressure on the belt edge to bring the frame to this angle is negligible. The frame will only steer the belt as far as it is out of centre.
SureGuide Return Tracker
Manufactured using special hardened steels and alloys and precision-turned via CNC machining, the SureGuide Return Tracker is designed for extended operational life. A key feature of the SureGuide Return Tracker design is the use of an oil bath for bearing lubrication, which also assists in increasing operational flexibility.
