Conveyor Idlers - Series FMC E4000 - Medium-to-heavy duty

Supplier: Tekforce Engineering

The FMC Series E4000 trough belt idler is designed for maximum capacity of the heaviest, most abrasive materials, such as coal, ore and overburden.


The Link-Belt Series E4000 conveyor-idler line features factory lubricated and sealed for life rolls which eliminate relubrication maintenance costs, thus lowering your total operating cost.

Boasting load ratings which exceed CEMA E requirements, this rugged idler line is designed for maximum capacity and continuous handling of the heaviest, coarsest, most abrasive bulk materials, such as coal, iron ore, copper, large stone and over burden.

Available in 900 to 2400mm belt width 20, 35, and 45 degree troughed, positive action training, impact, and return idlers, the unique design of the E4000S idler provides extended, trouble free service life for your belt conveyor equipment.

The E4000 trough rollers and frames are protected from corrosion by a polymeric powder coating (Corvel Gray) which is applied following a three-stage phosphate cleaning operation.

The finish is then baked on at high temperatures to provide resistance to abrasive elements.

Assembly hardware is electro-zinc plated to ensure extended service. The Series E4000 rollers, available in both 152mm and 178mm diameters, feature an exclusive, full length center tube and precision die formed heads that are recessed into hot rolled mechanical shells.

The entire unit is then continuously welded robotically, thus ensuring an integral, airtight unit wherein contaminants and corrosion cannot enter.

This unrivaled center tube design guarantees perfect shaft/bearing alignment. Bearing life is increased by using solid, cold drawn steel shafts to minimize deflection and increase load ratings.

The redesigned premium quality Delrin triple horizontal labyrinth outer seal protects the precision tapered roller bearings in several ways. The outer deflector cap (flinger) features a 90 degree contoured lip to deflect material away from the roll end.

Triple horizontal, greased-filled labyrinths and nitrile triple lip contact primary seals, along with rear non-contacting seals, ensure against the ingress of performance inhibiting contaminants.

The outer adjusting nuts are zinc plated, machined steel, to minimize corrosion The E4000 idler line features an inverted angle frame base with slotted footstraps to ensure quick, easy mounting and alignment. 
The heavy duty, die-formed, steel end brackets are contoured for generous clearance to safeguard against spilled materials becoming jammed and impeding the rotation of the rollers. All idler frames and rolls are welded in accordance with AWS D1.1 specifications for structural welds.
