Semi-Ceramic Pulley Lagging ASGCO added a semi-ceramic option to its pulley lag- ging product line, featuring 40 percent coverage. With this newest addition, customers have a choice between full-ceramic coverage with the Arrowhead Ceramic Pulley Lagging for high tension drive pulleys, and the Semi-Ce- ramic Lagging for smaller pulleys, non-drive pulleys and bend pulleys. The improved ceramic tiles are embedded in rubber on all sides and separated by a horizontal groove for dispelling water and dirt. It provides robust performance in dry, wet or muddy applications. ASGCO's pre-chemical backing provides an exceptional bond for rubber-to-metal applica- tions, and easy installation. Other features and benefits include: • Increased productivity by delivering increased traction between the conveyor belt and pulley, allowing for lower belt tension than with rubber lagging. • Reduced down time on non-drive pulleys, where pulley change-out due to excessive wear is difficult. • Superior bonding strength due to 3 mm of neoprene compound vulcanized into the bottom-side of the lag- ging. • Rounded corners that allow better adhesion between the rubber and the tile. ASGCO's Semi-Ceramic Lagging is supplied in 15-in. x 32.81-ft. rolls for full versatility. www.asgco.com 16. Plant Clean-Up Cement plants experience spilled material and track-out around the facility, requiring durable sweepers. Materials can be a combination of crushed lime, coke and finished cement product. In addition, the cement product is reac- tive when in contact with water. Sweepers with waterless/dry dust control such as the El- gin Industrial Waterless Pelican and the Waterless Eagle are the most effective in cement plant applications. These sweepers can sweep dry dusty particles without using wa- ter to suppress dust. The Elgin Industrial Waterless Pel- ican also has an industrial option that includes reduced broom speed, a lower roller deflector and special skirting all designed for superior performance in bulk powder ap- plications. www.elginsweeper.com 17.
