To start with the idlers, let’s look at the ones that carry the load first. They are called troughing idlers.
This type of idler comes in various depths of trough. The depth used will depend upon the material being carried and the speed that the conveyor is traveling at. The deeper conveyors will carry more at higher speeds and have less spillage.
IMPACT IDLERS are still troughing idlers but are designed to receive a sharp blow without being damaged. They are used under the ’’DRAY/ POINT” this is the point at which the ore is loaded on to the conveyor, and are placed closer together than the rest of the idlers. To prevent damage to both themselves and the belt, from the impact of the rock, they are made from rubber and are grooved. The groove is put into the idler to allow the rubber to flex when it is struck.
