Emerson’s Power Transmission Solutions business will introduce its new System Plast NGTM Evo conveyor chain at Brau Beviale, and will also exhibit a wide variety of bearings engineered for beverage industry applications.
The new NG Evo chain is made from a proprietary, low-friction material for dry high-speed conveying. It provides a higher breaking load, greater elasticity, lower coefficient of friction and much greater abrasion resistance than the original NG chain. NG Evo significantly expands options for dry conveying to meet sustainability and water conservation goals, which will grow in importance for beverage processors worldwide. It also reduces the costs and energy for water reclamation and treatment, and eliminates the wear paste buildup caused by mineral-oil-based dry lubricants.
The companion Nolu®-S wear strips and guides enable reduced-lubrication or lubrication-free, high speed conveyor operation. They are made of a unique resin with a solid lubricant that dramatically reduces the coefficient of friction. Nolu-S helps reduce noise, energy consumption, squeaking, and chain pull/belt fatigue. The combination of NG Evo chain and Nolu-S wear strips can reduce a conveyor’s energy requirements by up to 30 percent, with service life as much as five times greater.
