OMAHA, NEBRASKA, U.S. — Intersystems announced on Feb. 25 that it has launched two new products to its already extensive bulk material handling line: distributors and triple idler enclosed belt conveyors. Intersystems said the addition of these products expands its commitment as a full-line supplier of heavy duty bulk material handling equipment. Both the triple idler conveyor and the distributors are key products to the grain and feed industries. Intersytems said its customers will be able to easily integrate these products with Intersystems’ existing line of bulk material handling equipment.
The triple idler conveyor, named the RollerFLO 3i enclosed belt conveyor, features side idler support brackets with easy two-bolt removal, external flange bearings, heavy duty idlers, two-way head discharges, reloading tail with a “quick clamped” hinged tail shroud and a self-cleaning spiral wing tail pulley. Results of thorough testing and temperature readings ensure reliable performance. The 3i joins the company’s original RollerFLO to meet a variety of enclosed belt conveying needs.
The distributor’s initial product offering consists of spout sizes ranging from 10 to 30 inches and 4-hole to 20-hole in full round or flat back models with swing valve available as well. Intersystems also noted that other features included are: an electric direct drive rotary encoder for ease of maintenance and installation; a thrust bearing used to take the load of the distributor spout and live load; bi-directional rotation; rotary position sensor; a seal plate; and weather-proof and dust-tight construction.
