Garland Idlers

With the requirement for larger, more durable carrying systems that incorporate a flexible solution in order to satisfy the needs of industrial applications, the garland system was created.

Garland units advantages versus rigid trough idlers are as follows:

  • Increased Carrying Capacity
    : Rigid conveyors (exceeding 100 meters) will settle the conveyed material to a flatter profile, lowering the maximum capacity
  • No Training Idlers
    : Since the garland unit is at rest in its normal trough position, eccentrically loaded belts will move to its rest position, aligning the load and belt at the same time.
  • Longer Belt Life
    : Flexibility and ability to be loaded off center provide a smoother, less jarred flow of material.
    : No requirement for training idlers means belt edges are saved abuse from guide roll units.

Suspended (Garland) Idlers

The introduction of bigger excavators and the resulting large lumps of material caused, in earlier years, increased breakdowns of conveyors and rigid idler stations. The reasons for the breakdowns were: bulky material, spillage, damage to belts (at impact points). A reduction of the belt speed would have improved the situation, but would also have forced a reduction in capacity. The search for an optimal solution brought about steeper troughing angles and pushed development of the flexible roller base, known today internationally under the name of the Garland system.
