Tail Roll Heater

Buildup on Tail Rolls that leads to belt misalignment is eliminated with the use of a Model D2R 400 Heater or MH-400-F portable heater. It requires very little heat in most instances due to the small confined space involved and stops the down time.

In most installations on pulleys and rolls it is possible to install a combustion chamber. This combustion chamber has no bottom and one side is open that is placed towards the roll. The opposite side reflects the heat increasing its efficiency.

In the case of rubber lagged rolls the contact of the belt against the roll transfers the heat and prevents the lagging from being over heated.

Due to the lack of space in some installations the burner head tube is held in place by a mounting flange and the tube is directed at the roll to be heated as shown in this example.
