AGGREGATES MANAGER November 2014 8 ROLLOUTS Heavy duty conveyor pulleys Baldor Electric Co. introduced conveyor pulleys with XT hubs and bushings. The XT conveyor pulleys are available in heavy duty, mine duty, and mine duty extra construction, in both drum pulley and wing pulley design. The pulleys feature thicker end discs, which means they can power through tough conditions. Baldor Electric Co. | Mobile plant monitoring Metso now offers fleet management systems for its Lokotrack mobile applications. Metso Fleet Management system consists of an IC process control system, a satellite uplink, and a Metso DNA Report portal. The system collects and presents a daily overview of the operating fleet, including effective operating hours, fuel consumption, location of the units, alarms, and parameter changes. With the new fleet management tool, information collected by the Metso IC process control system is sent from the crushing units via satellite to an internet portal. Data can be compared between units, days, or weeks. Metso Mining and Construction | Ceramic pulley lagging Flexco introduces its Flex-Lag Medium Ceramic Pulley Lagging, which features 39-percent tile coverage and complements its Full Ceramic and Dia- mond Ceramic lines. The pulley lagging can be used in dry, wet, or muddy applications where slippage can occur. Horizontal grooves in the lagging trap and deflect water and debris, while the molded ceramic buttons grip the belt's underside for positive traction and no slippage. The lagging comes in strip widths ranging from 35 to 101 inches to match pulley face widths or 18 to 84 inches to match belt widths. It works with pulley diameters over 12.6 inches and is also available in SBR or FRAS rubber. Flexco | Tier 4 Final loaders The Volvo L110H and L120H are said to be among the manufac- turer's most environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient machines to date. The latest generation of machines in the 18- to 22-ton class is powered by an 8-liter tier 4 Final engine with fully auto- matic regeneration that combines high performance with low emissions and low fuel consumption. The powertrain and intel- ligent hydraulics, which supply power on demand, supplement the engine's efficiency. Load-sensing hydraulics offer faster response for control over the load and shorter cycle times. The Reverse-By- Braking function automatically reduces engine rpm and applies the service brakes when the operator changes the direction of the machine, which not only conserves fuel, but also reduces stress on the drivetrain. OptiShift technology combines the braking function with a lock-up torque converter to create a direct drive between the engine and transmission, eliminating power losses in the torque converter and reducing fuel consumption by up to 18 percent.
