Whether you’re looking for a complete conveyor solution, or just a replacement part, you’ll find it here.
At the point where the belt meets the roller, there is always a risk of operators or anyone else in the area accidentally getting their fingers or clothes trapped, and potentially suffer serious injuries.
Although unlikely, it is also possible that a rock or stone can fall and become trapped between the belt and pulley, causing serious damage to both. Both these issues can be avoided by blocking the danger zone with a polyurethane foam barrier or head pulley guard.
Metso HiSafe head pulley guards are positioned with a 5 mm gap on either side. The guard is not in contact with the conveyor belt, but the remaining gap is too small for fingers to get trapped.
Made of polyurethane foam, the guard is gentle on the belt in the event of contact. Polyurethane is more suitable than rubber for this purpose, since it is low friction and therefore does not generate the kind of heat that would wear the belt out over time.
Available for different belt widths, head pulley guards are standard items and therefore always available in stock. They are easy and convenient to install and can be adapted to fit different pulley lengths or site-specific conditions.
Furthermore, Metso HiSafe head pulley guards do not need to be removed during normal conveyor maintenance, which saves time and effort.
Material: Polyurethane blocks
Belt width: 500-1400 mm
Head pulley diameter: < 650 mm
If >650 mm, please contact Metso
At the point where the belt meets the tail pulley, there is always a risk of operators or anyone else in the area accidentally getting their fingers or clothes trapped, and potentially suffering serious injuries.
It is also possible that stones and debris can become wedged between the belt and pulley, causing serious damage to both. These issues can be avoided by blocking the danger zone with a V-shaped polyethylene barrier or tail pulley guard.
The guard is in contact with the belt, but being made of low friction polyethylene, it doesn’t generate heat and is therefore gentle on the belt.
The tail pulley guard's primary purpose is to prevent operators’ fingers getting injured.
The V-shaped guard also deflects stones like a material plough – resulting in extended belt lifespan and minimized risk of costly downtime.
Available for different belt widths, this is a standard item and therefore always available in stock. It is easy and convenient to install and can be adapted to fit different pulley lengths or site-specific conditions.
Material: Steel and polyethylene
Belt width: 500 - 1200 mm
