Low Noise Aluminium Roller
Light weight, low noise, corrosion resistant roller
NEPEAN Conveyors have significant experience in designing conveying solutions that are safe, reliable and enable maximum productivity levels. NEPEAN Conveyors specialise in products for the future of mining.
Our low noise aluminium roller has a unit weight approximately 35% lighter than an equivalent steel roller. The NEPEAN Conveyors Low Noise Aluminium Roller has been specifically designed for bulk handling port applications where noise, weight and corrosion resistance are of paramount importance.
Precision material selection and Australian manufacturing capabilities allow us to produce these high performance rollers in large volumes and with short lead times.
The extreme accuracy is achieved by the use of NEPEAN Conveyors high quality conveyor tube that has exacting levels of dimensional accuracy, especially in the areas of wall thickness, roundness (TIR) and straightness. The reduced inertia grants a signifcant reduction in the power required to start and stop a belt conveyor.
In addition, the non-metallic end cap provides some dampening of vibration which further reduces the roller noise. The low noise aluminium roller is designed to withstand the most arduous
of applications. Extensive FEA has ensured that the finished roller is able to withstand
loads and stresses that are experienced by traditional welded steel rollers. The end
cap is manufactured from a material that has exceptional mechanical and fatigue life
characteristics. It is also UV resistant to withstand years of service in the harshest of
