Head pulley guards

Metso HiSafe

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

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.

Material properties

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.

Special features

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. What’s more, it does not need to be removed during normal conveyor maintenance, which saves time and effort.
