- Next generation Stieber releasable backstops offer improved performance and functionality
Stieber Clutch torque limiting/load sharing backstops with release functionality allow the tension of a jammed mine conveyor belt to be carefully released using a simple hydraulic pump. These releasable backstops are capable of performing as many reverse rotations as required (within the limits of energy dissipation) to completely unload a conveyor prior to performing maintenance … Continue reading Next generation Stieber releasable backstops offer improved performance and functionality
- High quality locally made pipe solutions for life
Steel pipe is synonymous with strength. In comparison with any other pipe material, steel offers the highest strength, in proportion to wall thickness of any commercial piping material. As a ferrous material if not adequately protected from the potential of corrosion, its longevity may be reduced. With over 100 years local and international supply experience, … Continue reading High quality locally made pipe solutions for life
