Browning TorqTaper Solution for C2P Agg Conveyor
Customer had old alignment free parallel shaft unit (34.47:1 ratio) that utilized swing base and hollow output quill of 915⁄16”. Head pulley is 44” in diameter and 44” wide and conveyor was conveying crushed rock at 600 FPM @ 1200TPH. Unit was making a great deal of noise and it was feared that it could go down at any time.
608SMTP25, 608TAP, Belt Guard BGP4, 55V925E, E 3 3/8, 55V1320E, E 2 11/16, 5VX1400 belts, 7.0 Rigid/Rigid coupling with special pilot ring in line bored 915⁄16” and 61 ⁄2” modified for keyless mounting and the use of a keyless bushing for slip fit mounting. A 915⁄16” shaft was not going to fit into the 608 unit. A full rigid coupling was used to create a shaft extension and adapt to a 61 ⁄2” diameter and 29” stub shaft to be mounted to the existing head pulley. The customer did not have to turn shaft down or remove existing head pulley and bearings to get this solution to work. Great amount of maintenance time saved in not having to remove machine and replace. Also did not have to inteference fit rigid hub to 915⁄16 shaft. Use of keyless bushing combined with 7.0 rigid/rigid allowed for work on parts in machine shop and easy replacement or installation in the field.
