In any business, value is judged based on the lowest cost to accomplish the task at hand. In the bulk material handling business this means achieving the lowest cost per ton to move your product from where it is to where you need it to be.
Conveyors are engineered to accommodate the weights, volumes, speeds and distances that are required to transport your product. CEMA (Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association) has established a set of voluntary standards governing a wide range of specifications for the components that make up a conveyor. For idlers, they designate five duty classes: B, C, D, E and F, with B being the lightest duty and F the heaviest.
If all idlers were created equal then your choice would be simple. Gather pricing for the correct CEMA class of idlers or rolls and go with the lowest price. Unfortunately all idlers and rolls are not created equal.
At Rite Idler we pride ourselves on building our products better to last longer. To help you understand why our rolls are better built, we have provided you with information on our key features, design, and our specialty shaft ends. Give each link a click to find out more information.
