Technical Zone

Our experts are constantly updating our technical zone with handy hacks to help you maximise up time.

  • Why should I switch to a Polymer King Roller?
    • Up to 50% noise reduction compared to steel rollers
      Irish Salt Mines recorded a 50% noise reduction in their tunnel conveyor after replacing steel return and trough rollers with SM King Rollers
    • Energy Reduction = Lower Cost per Tonne
      King Rollers are up to 60% lighter than steel rollers, reducing conveyor weight, belt tension and machine running costs.
    • Longer Life
      King Roller’s™ waterproof triple labyrinth seal, means King Roller™ is ideal for use in dusty, humid, alkaline & acidic environments, as it won’t rust and moisture cannot reach its bearings
    • Maximise Uptime, Reduce Maintenance King Roller™’s self cleaning anti-static surface greatly reduces the risk of material build up the main cause of tracking problems, premature belt wear and failure of steel rollers.

  • How much can you save with Zip Clip?

    Introducing Zip Clip® the mechanically fastened replacement conveyor belt. Easy, quick and safe to fit, Zip Clip® acts as an insurance policy in the event of a breakdown – removing the need for a
    vulcanising team and getting your conveyor back up and running immediately.


    Example: Limestone quarry producing 1600 tonnes of material per day. On this site a breakdown can often mean two days of machine downtime whilst waiting on a vulcanising crew and replacement conveyor belt. This downtime equates to a loss of $31,582. Having a Zip Clip® belt in stock to replace your most critical conveyor could have you back up and running up to 6 hours faster*.
    Once fitted & tensioned, a Zip Clip® belt can be run immediately.
