U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission has added to its product range with the Dura Drum sprocket, designed to reduce downtime, increase savings and provide greater reliability for conveyor systems.
The new release is available as a full-faced or A-plate drum sprocket, and promises to help keep heavy-duty operations running efficiently and profitably.
“Dura Drum broadens U.S. Tsubaki’s industry-leading portfolio, offering every type of sprocket to the North American market,” said Derek Glugosh, Product Manager at Tsubaki of Canada Limited. “We understand the rigorous demands of the industries we serve, and Dura Drum was made for operators seeking the very best in durability, quality and value.”
Full-face Dura Drum sprockets feature a longer tooth profile to help spread out the contact pressure between the sprocket and chain, promoting longer service life and greater wearability.
A-plate style Dura Drum sprockets are designed to handle greater misalignment while allowing bulk materials to easily pass through without damaging equipment. All U.S. Tsubaki drum sprockets are manufactured from top-grade steel to withstand heavy shock loading and resist abrasion. U.S. Tsubaki drum sprockets also have thickness minimums starting at ½-inch for each component.
Dura Drum sprockets can come fully assembled with a shaft, sprocket and pillow block bearing already configured, reducing installation time and costs while allowing for quick and easy mounting.
U.S. Tsubaki is a subsidiary of Japanese-headquartered Tsubakimoto Chain Co.
