BMG’s intensive energy transmission vary encompasses HEKO conveyor parts, including spherical link chains and parts for submerged chain conveyors, which have been designed for reliable use in lots of harsh environments.
“High wear-resistant HEKO elements for bulk materials conveyors, that are manufactured in Germany to pristine quality requirements, improve BMG’s intensive range of chain merchandise,” explains Gavin Kirstein, enterprise unit manager, energy transmission division, BMG. “Through the provision and help of HEKO products, BMG boosts its options service to its broad customer – base, by optimising the efficiency of bulk material conveyor methods.
HEKO parts for submerged chain conveyors to drain ash from a boiler discharge

“We recommend using submerged chain conveyors for our clients who work with coal, wooden, refuse and scrubber sludge, to effectively gather, cool and drain bottom ash from a boiler discharge. These conveyors, which are fitted with safe releases, are designed to deal with backside ash efficiently and safely.
“Submerged chain conveyors are sometimes installed for the transportation of slag granulated materials, ash made of stone and brown coal firing, as properly as metallurgical process residue or waste ash. Fluid slag or hot ash from soften firing is crammed in a vessel with water for cooling after which transported by way of a sequence conveyor from the vessel to an ash bunker.
HEKO chain strands are highly wear-resistant, case hardened and manufactured with low tolerances. Chain sprockets and chain rollers, with replaceable segments of tooth, are sealed for safe use underneath water.
HEKO’s pocket teeth chain wheels, with toothed rims, are manufactured from special alloy steels and designed for prolonged service life.
Chain contact surfaces are machined and the sides are chamfered to make sure a positive contact with the chain and a great lead into the wheel. Chain contact surfaces are hardened for lengthy service life.
Pocket toothed chain wheels are provided for use with particular attachments – vertical shackle to DIN or TS-shackle and lift-in scraper bars. Replaceable rims have the benefit that the hub can be left in place during refurbishment, which saves upkeep time and reduces costs. Purchasing prices for replacements are additionally decrease in comparability with the investment in completely new wheels. Dimensions for current installations are tailor-made to suit each particular application.
HEKO support idling wheels and snub wheels are alternative solutions to guide rails for horizontal and inclined conveyors. The use of wheels reduces friction and thus energy requirements.

HEKO chain techniques with attachments can be provided pre-assembled (with the chain as infinite spherical strands), thus eliminating the need for on-site assembly. Plug-in scraper attachments sort SMO, enable quick connection to countless chain strands with chain locks, making reversible conveying possible.
Also in BMG’s range are round hyperlink chains, which have been developed by HEKO for bucket elevators and chain conveyors. These components are suitable for use in various sectors, together with mining and quarrying, cement, chemical and incinerating crops, paper manufacturing, food and beverage, in addition to artificial manure and common machine industries.”

HEKO chains – identified globally for top fatigue power and shut length tolerance of chain pairs – are manufactured from durable supplies, including manganese, chrome-nickel and fine grain chrome-nickel alloy steels. Advanced computer-controlled heat-treatment processes are employed to supply tempered or case-hardened chains.
Advantages of case-hardening include a excessive breaking load, resulting from a troublesome, nice grain core and high wear-resistance, from a minimal surface hardness of 800 HV. In addition to 6 commonplace hardening depths, BMG additionally presents HEKO merchandise with hardening depths to swimsuit particular necessities.
The HEKO range comprises spherical steel chains, bucket and scraper attachments, chain wheels, buckets and shafts, in addition to full return and tensioning items. Heat-resistant ring kiln chains for rotary kilns also type part of the range.
BMG’ pressure gauge 10 bar provides a technical advisory service on appropriate chain choice, which is a crucial consider power transmission systems.
