Immediate Stop Brake (ISB) The Increased Safety Feature, Only from Screw Conveyor Limited
This NEW increased safety feature, the Immediate Stop Brake (ISB), is ONLY available from SCL.
The ISB is being implemented by many operators, in some cases it is a mandatory installation, in other cases they are mandatory for any screw conveyor to which operational personnel have access.
As can be seen from the short video below, the improvement in safety is considerable especially when considering that the current E-Stop system serves almost as a start / stop control function and not a true E-Stop.
With the current E-Stop system a screw conveyor can take up to 6 complete revolutions (6 seconds) to come to a complete standstill after activation of the E-Stop button.
Complete Standstill Achieved within 0.5 Seconds
With the new ISB installed the screw conveyor will come to a complete standstill within 0.5 seconds of activation. This is also a fail-safe device.
