  • New range of Melco retractable V return idlers are well received in SA » MELCO
    V return idlers to the South African mining market The Melco retractable V return idler design consists of a permanently installed main frame sloping at a 10 angle to the incline belt with end plates and a cut out Melco sales and marketing director Craig Warmback explains that the roller is located in a retractable frame that slides into the main frame at a 6 angle which ensures that it drops away from the belt as it is retracted thereby ensuring improved safety due to the fact that the belt does not have to be lifted This innovative design enables a single workman to change out rollers which can be more than 1m long while standing on a standard 750 mm walkway In order to undertake this process the workmen simply need to unbolt the sliding frame from the end plates of the main frame and pull out the sliding frame After replacing the roller the sliding frame is returned to its operating position he says Melco managing director Gavin Hall highlights the fact that the company s range of retractable V return idlers have been adopted by Grootegeluk coal mine which is installing a conveyor system to supply Medupi Power Station in Limpopo province The stringent safety requirements at the mine s elevated gantries necessitated the need for a range of return rollers to be safer to replace when damaged or worn he explains Hall notes that Melco was approached to design a retractable idler that would make it easier and safer for workers in this previously challenging working environment To replace a roller a team of workmen wearing safety harnesses has to climb inside the gantry lift the return belt clear of the roller then uncouple and remove the heavy roller There may also be other complications to take into account like underpans which prevents any material from the loaded belt falling to the ground making access to the roller even more difficult The process of changing rolls in this environment is very complex and challenging indeed In addition to improving its safety standards Warmback points out that Grootegeluk will also save on overhead costs in the long term due to the fact that the Melco range of retractable V return idlers reduce the risk of unscheduled downtime and maintenance The elimination of belt lifting during the changeout task saves a significant amount of time and consequently money due to the fact that only one worker is required for the entire process What s more the only tool required is a spanner so the risk of belt damage and roller falls are substantially reduced he continues Looking to the future Hall is confident that the Melco range of retractable V return idlers will gain popularity especially as mining operations becoming increasingly safety conscious Melco is able to install the retractable idler system to any existing conveyor belt that has access walkways on both sides of the conveyor Retrofitting to an existing structure that is being modernised or upgraded

  • Melco to exhibit world’s largest motorised pulley at 2012 Electra Mining » MELCO
    suited as a belt conveyor drive solution for large volumes of bulk material for mining applications notes Melco Product Manager Bryan Krynauw This particular model of motorised pulley is 1 000 mm in diameter with a 1 800 mm face length It has a belt speed of 4 m per second 3 000 Nm of torque and a belt pull of 58 800 Nm making it the fastest and most powerful motorised pulley in the international market which is capable of improving productivity and efficiency in African mining projects According to Krynauw motorised pulleys are the next step of advancement in the African mining sector and he points out that the Rulmeca range of motorised pulleys come in power ranges varying from less than 1 kW to 250 kW with pulley diameters ranging between 220 mm and 1 000 mm Only the shell of the motorised pulley moves when installed which makes it an extremely safe design for any application The compact design of the motorised pulley also makes it more cost effective and easier to install when compared to standard pulleys he continues Krynauw points out that the Rulmeca motorised pulley is considered to be one of the most reliable effective and safe conveyor drive systems in the world thanks to its unique design which encloses the drive and gearbox inside the drive pulley By enclosing all drive components within the pulley shell the unit becomes considerably more compact and efficient An added safety feature of the Rulmeca motorised pulley is the fact that all electromechanical components are sealed to IP67 standards within the steel pulley shell thereby increasing reliability and operator safety while minimising drive size and reducing noise Melco Managing Director Gavin Hall highlights the fact that the company will once again be exhibiting its internationally recognised

  • Motorized pulleys offer improved performance to bulk handling industries » MELCO
    Gavin Hall points out that the Rulmeca motorized pulley was first manufactured in Europe in 1953 specifically for use on conveyor belt applications and has since become recognised as a preferred belt conveyor drive solution among leading African mining and engineering firms since Melco began importing the range locally five years ago The Rulmeca motorized pulley is considered to be one of the most reliable effective and safe conveyor drive systems in the world thanks to its unique design which encloses the drive and gearbox inside the drive pulley By enclosing all drive components within the pulley shell the unit becomes considerably more compact and efficient he explains Melco sales and marketing director Craig Warmback highlights the fact that the Rulmeca range of motorized pulleys comes in power ranges varying from 1 kW to 250 kW with pulley diameters ranging between 220 mm and 1000 mm making them ideally suited to numerous industries ranging from mining and engineering to agriculture and construction Only the shell of the motorized pulley moves when installed which makes it an extremely safe design for any application The compact design of the motorized pulley also makes it more cost effective and easier to install when compared to standard drive systems An added safety feature of the Rulmeca motorized pulley is the fact that all electromechanical components are sealed to IP67 standards within the steel pulley shell thereby increasing reliability and operator safety while minimising drive size and reducing noise Hall adds that Rulmeca motorized pulleys also require minimal maintenance The gears and bearings are continuously and automatically splash lubricated in order to lower maintenance requirements while the circulating oil transfers heat from the motors through the pulley shell and into the conveyor belt The motorized pulley then dissipates the heat by utilising the conveyor belt

  • Melco conveyor components improve productivity in shipping industry » MELCO
    been making sole use of Melco s state of the art range of HDPE rollers on all of its conveyor belts since 1990 Our HDPE rollers branded as the Melco Supreme roller have a longer lifespan than standard steel rollers in harsh port conditions thanks to a 12 mm external HDPE sleeve which ensures overall cost savings with regards to maintenance and downtime The machined finish of the Melco HDPE roller results in low total indicated run out which ultimately minimises vibration and noise levels adds Warmback The reduction of noise pollution is essential to all ports as many aim to increase productivity without the consequent increase in noise levels due to the fact that most harbours are located fairly close to residential areas with a high population density What s more HDPE is fully recyclable and is therefore the most environmentally friendly roller available in the local market Melco works closely with numerous other port authorities in South Africa and Melco idler sets and rolls can also be found in Durban harbour the Port of Saldanha Bay and Port Elizabeth harbour Melco managing director Gavin Hall notes that Melco was involved in the successful 2009 R50 milllion conveyor upgrade project at the Port of Saldanha Bay Melco was involved in the entire upgrade of the port s conveyor belt system in order to increase throughput With regard to the conveyor idlers the existing 5 roll garlands were replaced with deep trough 3 roll underslung idlers which increased the material cross sectional area by approximately 20 per cent he explains Hall points out that this involved the installation of 2 4 km of conveyor belts in addition to four stacker reclaimers which transport the product from the conveyor onto the ship The upgrade has enabled Saldanha to increase its iron
