Polyurethane Rollers are More Cost Effective say Roller Manufacturers

By Maria Gini Subscribe to RSS | February 25th 2012 | Views:

Yes, it comes from the horse’s mouth. Roller manufacturers admit that polyurethane rollers are more cost effective for a variety of reasons. The advantages of using polyurethane are inherent in its properties. Rollers made of polyurethane will often outwear other materials by a margin of 5 to 50/one when severe abrasion is a factor. In fact, experience has shown that polyurethane rollers are vastly superior to those made of rubber, plastics and metal in many applications.

Roller manufacturers also take advantage of the fact that polyurethane has excellent resistance to oils, solvents, fats, greases and gasoline. This makes the use of polyurethane rollers the desirable option in chemical and other industries where they are going to be exposed to high temperature variations and solvents and greases. They are ideal material for load wheels, heavy duty couplings, metal-forming pads, shock pads, expansion joints and machine mounts. In short, heavy industry benefits from the usage of polyurethane rollers.

Resistance to oxygen, ozone, sunlight and general weather conditions make polyurethane the preferred material for rollers that need to be exposed considerably to the vagaries of the weather. There are heavy duty usages that roller manufacturers know have special requirements. These could be use in conveyor belts that can be relied upon to move military munitions or volatile and potentially explosive products like dynamite used by the mining industry to demolish rock. The longest conveyor belt now in use is 60 miles long, in the phosphate mines of Western Sahara.

The most sensitive use that polyurethane rollers are put to is in the grocery industry. That is because poultry and farm produce have to be conveyed on roller feeds to convey cans and packages of food that will be sold and eventually end up in our kitchens. The very best food industry conveyor systems are made of polyurethane because of its anti-bacterial properties. With food conveyor systems that are properly installed and maintained, cross contamination is virtually nonexistent. It is easy to be awed by the technology, but selecting the right roller manufacturers and technology can make or break your business.
