- What causes the rods to take a Camshaft form? What can I do to solve that problem?
Camshafting can be caused by a variety of factors including abrasion, high speeds or heavy load. Contact our Technical Support Group to determine the specific cause and to tailor a solution to your problem.
- What does the belt strength (BS) actually mean?
The belt strength is the maximum belt tension (per foot or meter of width) the belt can continuously run at.
- How can I calculate total belt length?
For a standard catenary conveyor this would be: (2 * shaft center distance + sprocket circumference) + 5% for the catenaries.
- How can I measure belt pitch?
The pitch is the distance from the center of one rod to the center of the next. For accuracy reasons, Intralox recommends measuring pitch by taking a measurement over at least 20 rows and dividing by the number of rows.
- Are Intralox belt materials conforming to FDA regulations and EU Directives?
Our standard materials (PP, PE, POM, PA66) comply with the FDA regulations and EU Directives. A letter of assurance can be made available on demand.
- How can I best track my Intralox belts?
To ensure optimal tracking of Intralox belts, we recommended locking the centermost sprocket on both drive and idle shaft.
- Can I purchase sprockets from Intralox to use on my drum motor?
