BMG’s intensive energy transmission range encompasses HEKO conveyor parts, including round link chains and elements for submerged chain conveyors, which have been designed for dependable use in lots of harsh environments.
“High wear-resistant HEKO parts for bulk materials conveyors, which are manufactured in Germany to pristine quality standards, improve BMG’s in depth range of chain products,” explains Gavin Kirstein, business unit manager, power transmission division, BMG. “Through the provision and help of HEKO products, BMG boosts its solutions service to its broad buyer – base, by optimising the effectivity of bulk material conveyor methods.
HEKO elements for submerged chain conveyors to drain ash from a boiler discharge
“We advocate using submerged chain conveyors for our clients who work with coal, wooden, refuse and scrubber sludge, to effectively acquire, cool and drain bottom ash from a boiler discharge. These conveyors, which are fitted with safe releases, are designed to deal with bottom ash effectively and safely.
“Submerged chain conveyors are sometimes installed for the transportation of slag granulated materials, ash made of stone and brown coal firing, as well as metallurgical course of residue or waste ash. Fluid slag or sizzling ash from soften firing is crammed in a vessel with water for cooling after which transported via a series conveyor from the vessel to an ash bunker.
HEKO chain strands are highly wear-resistant, case hardened and manufactured with low tolerances. Chain sprockets and chain rollers, with replaceable segments of enamel, are sealed for protected use underneath water.
HEKO’s pocket enamel chain wheels, with toothed rims, are manufactured from particular alloy steels and designed for prolonged service life.
Chain contact surfaces are machined and the sides are chamfered to make sure a constructive contact with the chain and a great lead into the wheel. Chain contact surfaces are hardened for long service life.
Pocket toothed chain wheels are provided for use with special attachments – vertical shackle to DIN or TS-shackle and lift-in scraper bars. Replaceable rims have the advantage that the hub could be left in place during refurbishment, which saves maintenance time and reduces costs. Purchasing prices for replacements are additionally lower compared to the investment in fully new wheels. Dimensions for existing installations are tailor-made to go properly with every particular application.
HEKO assist idling wheels and snub wheels are different options to information rails for horizontal and inclined conveyors. The use of wheels reduces friction and thus energy requirements.
HEKO components for submerged chain conveyors to empty ash from a boiler discharge
HEKO chain methods with attachments could be supplied pre-assembled (with the chain as endless spherical strands), thus eliminating the need for on-site assembly. Plug-in scraper attachments type SMO, enable quick connection to endless chain strands with chain locks, making reversible conveying potential.
Also in ขนาดpressuregauge are round link chains, which have been developed by HEKO for bucket elevators and chain conveyors. These parts are appropriate for use in numerous sectors, together with mining and quarrying, cement, chemical and incinerating vegetation, paper production, food and beverage, in addition to artificial manure and general machine industries.”
HEKO chains – known globally for prime fatigue energy and close length tolerance of chain pairs – are manufactured from durable supplies, together with manganese, chrome-nickel and fine grain chrome-nickel alloy steels. Advanced computer-controlled heat-treatment processes are employed to produce tempered or case-hardened chains.
Advantages of case-hardening embody a excessive breaking load, ensuing from a troublesome, nice grain core and high wear-resistance, from a minimal floor hardness of 800 HV. In addition to six commonplace hardening depths, BMG additionally offers HEKO products with hardening depths to swimsuit specific necessities.
The HEKO range comprises spherical metal chains, bucket and scraper attachments, chain wheels, buckets and shafts, as properly as full return and tensioning units. Heat-resistant ring kiln chains for rotary kilns additionally form a part of the range.
BMG’s national department community provides a technical advisory service on correct chain choice, which is a important factor in energy transmission methods.
