Superior Industries Inc. now manufactures a new, longer-lasting model of its Chevron Pulleys. Manufactured with special high tensile steel, the new AR Chevron Pulley model is designed for conveyor owners who require extra high performance and guaranteed uptime at their material-handling operations.
According to Superior, the new AR Chevron Pulleys are available in Mine Duty and Super Duty models, in diameters of 10-in. to 42-in. and face widths of 12-in. to 75-in. The manufacturer encourages bulk handlers requiring sizes that exceed these options to contact their local Superior distribution partner.
First introduced to the market in 2007, the Chevron Pulley is a v-shaped wing pulley designed to deflect fugitive material. As a result, the pulley lasts longer and better protects conveyor belts against punctures when compared to traditional wing pulleys. In addition, continuous pulley contact with the conveyor’s belting reduces a beating action caused by the pulleys wings and decreases pulley noise by 50 decibels.
