Aero-mechanical conveyors are as strong as their rope assemblies

The rope assembly is the aero-mechanical conveyor’s arterial system essential to maintaining an effortless flow of diverse and often challenging materials.

Consequently, a rope assembly has to be durable, flexible and resistant to residue build up. It must be robust enough to withstand the rigours of high velocity materials transfer without cracking, stretching or breaking under pressure.

Our customers understand that trusting their materials handling to Floveyor delivers a top quality rope assembly destined to work faultlessly for many thousands of hours.

As the inventors of aero-mechanical conveying technology, our reputation is built on the integrity and reliability of our products. As world leading specialists dedicated to advancing this technology we will never cut corners or compromise the quality of any component of our equipment.

We are continually refining our rope assemblies to meet specific industry needs including the stringent requirements in the food and pharmaceutical sectors for contamination free processing.

Our revolutionary rope assemblies

Assemblies for industrial applications

Floveyor's galvanised wire rope assembly will run effortlessly for most non food grade applications.

This standard Floveyor Rope Assembly is available as either a riveted or moulded polypropylene or polyurethane disc.  We recommend due diligence with some corrosive chemicals to ensure compatibility with this assembly.

Our revolutionary rope assemblies

Metal Detectable, X-Ray Contrast and Magnetic Susceptibility Rope Assemblies

These assemblies contain an additive in the polymer that allows the polyurethane to have x-ray contrast and magnetic susceptibility attributes.

The additive highlights contamination caused by mechanical faults, worn parts, and other sources likely to damage the rope assembly causing polyurethane particles to enter the product. This technology provides an additional safeguard against contaminated food products ever reaching consumers.

Maintaining the rope assembly

A timely and correct maintenance regime can extend the operational life of the rope assembly to in excess of 5,000 and 8,000 hours.

Download technical advice on caring for rope assemblies

A poorly maintained Floveyor with an over tightened assembly may have a replacement time as low as 100 or 200 hours. Other contributing factors to early rope assembly replacement include, poor operational set up and neglecting to monitor and replace worn components.

Advising you on the ideal rope assembly for your application is an integral part of our system planning and design process.
