DRUMMONDVILLE, Quebec – Soucy Plastiques, a subsidiary of The Soucy Group, is proud to launch a unique impact bar designed to increase replacement intervals and thereby boost productivity in the crushing circuit.
Manufactured in a one-step compression molding process using proprietary formulas, The Soucy HD (heavy duty) impact bar construction consists of a thick layer of rubber entrapped between two layers of slick UHMW-PE. The construction of this exclusive bar effectively absorbs the impact of falling materials, while the long wearing UHMW outer slider bar seals the load zone. The end result is a longer belt life, reduced spillage and decreased Operating and maintenance costs.
David Ouellet, engineering director at Soucy Plastiques, "Two years of field testing in a major Canadian crushed stone quarry show that the Soucy HD impact bar enhances its service life by 55% compared to the current bars". The UHMW-PE bottom layer (aluminium frame replacement) provides a consistent load transfer, is flexible and has memory so it deflects and then snaps back to its original shape, offering an improved seal between the conveyor belt and the impact bed.
In addition to greater durability, the Soucy HD impact bar has a lifetime warranty against delamination. "The exclusive bar construction is rust and spark free, and is simple to install and replace, making the task of changing bars safer, faster and easier," he added.
Soucy HD impact bars are suitable for most of the impact beds available on the market and are interchangeable with other bars (tailored machined slots).
