Conveyor Components Company’s model VA and VA-X bucket elevator belt alignment control tools are helping operators stay on top of potential issues and prevent damage in the bulk handling sector, the company says.
The model VA and VA-X have a rugged, heavy-duty cast aluminum housing (with a specially designed non-accumulating pocket), with both designed to indicate when the head or boot section of a bucket elevator drifts too far out of alignment.
This control device has a sequential two-pole double-break microswitch rated for 20 amps at 120 VAC, 240 VAC, or 480 VAC.
The switch actuation and linkage arms are field-adjustable with a simple 3/32 in (2.4 mm) hex wrench adjustment. The metal roller is sturdy and bi-directional, and designed to survive in difficult environments, according to the company.
The model VA microswitch is rated for NEMA 4 weatherproof, or NEMA 7/9 explosion proof (model VA-X). Epoxy powder coating or polyester powder coating is available as an option, the company concluded.
