The integrated controller makes it possible to adapt the output torque of the coupling exactly to the startup pa- rameters of the belt conveyor system. In addition, Voith said its engineers were able to significantly reduce the dimensions of the new coupling, so that the TurboBelt 500 TPXL only requires half the volume of conventional coupling types for the same force transmission. In addition to the op- erational advantages, the company noted that the new series of couplings also of- fers attractive procurement and operating costs. Voith offers a version with bearings on both sides for stand-alone use as well as a variant with bearings on the output side for direct motor connection. Power transmission via the TurboBelt 500 TPXL is wear-free and does not require a mechanical connection. New vanes with the XL profile double the power density of the coupling in comparison to conven- tional coupling types. This means that only half the volume is required to trans- mit the same force. The hydrodynamic circuit of the coupling limits the torque in the driveline to a fixed, defined value, which protects the belt and the drive com- ponents from damage due to overloading. This minimizes maintenance costs and increases the lifetime of the system. Mo- tors can be run up to speed under no-load conditions and staggered in time using the fill control system. This minimizes the current peaks that always occur when mo- tors are switched on and reduces the load placed on the power grid. The Roller Derby ASGCO has added Semi-Ceramic Pulley Lagging to its product portfolio, enabling it to offer customers a choice between full ceramic coverage with its Arrowhead Ceramic Pulley Lagging for high-tension drive pulleys, as well as partial (40% cov- erage) ceramic lagging for smaller pulleys, non-drive pulley's and bend pulleys. According to the company, Semi-Ce- ramic Pulley Lagging provides a solution when conventional rubber lagging fails to correct belt spillage and wears pre- maturely. The aluminum oxide ceramic tiles are embedded in rubber on all sides and separated by a horizontal groove to channel away water and dirt. Among the more important features of the product, said ASGCO, are its pre-chemical back- ing that provides an exceptional bond for rubber-to-metal applications; improved ASGCO's new Semi-Ceramic Pulley Lagging expands its product line to offer full or partial lagging solutions for most applications.
