Bespoke panels are available to operate multiple screw conveyors from a single control panel (download our Controls Panel flyer).
ATEX IECEx Emergency Stop buttons are wired back to the motor control equipment to stop the drive in an emergency. Careful consideration should be given to the location point(s) which should be easily accessible at all times. Depending on the length of the conveyor, a number of these units may be required to reduce the distance required for activation. The unit must be manually reset by pulling out the button and thus avoiding accidental resetting.
Start/Stop control panels can be supplied with a 110V internal control transformer to step down the voltage for auxiliary safety equipment, such as the emergency stop button or grab wire switch.
A standard feature is the lockable isolator switch (ATEX IECEx certified, maximum supply of 250V), to ensure power to the drive is totally cut prior to working on the conveyor. The lever is lockable which further enhances the safety of the operational personnel.
This ATEX IECEx emergency grab line system provides an emergency shutdown solution for the full length of the conveyor. The switch is wired back to the motor control equipment and when the rope is pulled at any point along its length, the drive will be shut down. As with the emergency stop button, the unit must be manually reset. Careful consideration should be given to the actual mounting location to ensure that the rope is easily accessible.
Rope kits are available in 10, 20 and 50 meter lengths and are easily cut to length to suit individual applications. The kit includes all the fixings required for installation.
We also provide all cables (marine and/or armoured), explosion proof glands as well as a complete electrical installation service.
Increased Safety – The Immediate Stop Brake (ISB)
Increased Safety Features include the Screw Conveyor Limited Immediate Stop Brake (ISB) system which should be implemented as standard on any screw conveyor system with operator access. The ISB is the ONLY available feature which ensures that a screw conveyor will stop immediately upon activation of the emergency stop buttons.
