Impact bars are specially designed to protect a conveyor system from impact harming. They are widely used at the conveyor’s loading point, when high levels of energy absorption is needed and low friction drag is desired.
Due to easy installation, Vasco impact bars replace the conventional idler sets. The top cover is made of an UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene), which gives Vasco impact bars a very low friction top surface. The middle part is of a high quality energy absorbing rubber that acts as a shock absorber at the loading zones of conveyor installation. Compared to traditional impact rollers, Vasco impact bars also prevent effectively bulk material from spillage, if the conveyor system is also equipped with Vasco dual sealed skirting rubber.
Vasco’s standard is 55mm, 75mm and 100mm thickness and 500mm to 1800mm length. Special size can be custom-made by request. The polyethylene cover is available in various colours such as green, red, white, blue or black. Besides for general applications, Vasco has developed anti-static and fire retardant impact bars for underground mining or other explosive environments.
