Introduction of fire retardant anti-static (fras) roller seal cartridges in Melco rollers

Melco, in close collaboration with the Rulmeca Group R and D department, made a decision to develop and offer to the market a standardised seal cartridge that complies with the highest possible fire retardant (FR) and anti-static (AS) ratings in the industry. This FRAS seal cartridge can be fitted to both steel and HDPE rollers depending on customer requirements.

Rollers fitted with FRAS seal cartridges will be highly sought after by companies operating conveyors in fiery conditions and / or the underground environment. In particular, underground coal mines will find the FRAS sealing system extremely attractive.

Melco is pleased to announce that the Rulmeca 6205 – 25 series 52 bore seal cartridge and back seal (both contactless and hermetic versions) is immediately available in FRAS execution from Melco.

The Rulmeca 6306 – 30 series 72 bore seal cartridge and back seal (both contactless and hermetic versions) will be available in FRAS execution from Melco as from 1 September 2016.

The Rulmeca 6305 – 25 series 62 bore seal cartridge and back seal (both contactless and hermetic versions) will be available in FRAS execution from Melco as from 1 October 2016.

The Rulmeca 6308 – 40 series 90 bore cartridge and back seal (only in contactless version) is available in FR execution from Rulmeca immediately.

Other sizes will be offered in FRAS execution by Melco in future according to customer demand.
