Reduce downtime and extend equipment life with a supply of top-quality black keyed spools.
Spools play an integral role in keeping line-shaft conveyors up and running. As the shaft rotates, the line-shaft spool spins with it, transmitting the power and motion that drives the individual conveyor rollers. But not all spools are created equally. If you replace damaged spools with the incorrect types or sub-par products, you might have a slipping issue.
Slipping spools can cause excess wear on O-rings and impact the efficiency of life-shaft conveyors. That can lead to frequent machine downtimes and shorten the lifespan of your machine. Fortunately, you can prevent slipping by using Super Bands’ black keyed spools.
Eliminate Slipping Spools and Reduce Downtime
Black keyed spools are typically designed for inclines, curves, or areas that require a greater drive. These spools feature a key-like design within the midsection, which aligns perfectly with the ridge on keyed line shafts. In turn, the spools stay in place, and the instances of slipping spools are virtually eliminated. You can then expect your line-shaft conveyor to work efficiently day in and day out for a long time. That, alone, can help boost your productivity.
Here’s a quick reminder, though: since black keyed spools won’t slip easily, make sure to only employ them in sections where jams and accumulation are least likely to happen.
