Steiber optimal backstop design provides higher plant efficiency, decreases costs

A major energy company in Australia needed reliable replacement low-speed backstops (LSBs) for six incline conveyors that move coal out of a mine to an adjacent power station.

The existing LSBs were being removed every two years for inspection and often needed replacing due to premature failure. With approximately 20 LSBs on-site, costs and downtime – including labor, large crane requirements, plus the new backstops – associated with the frequent replacements were beginning to grow significantly.

Watch this video to find out how Altra Motion’s Steiber custom backstops have prevented this problem.
