Do you have a problem with your conveyor / application running back?

It is well known that if you stop an incline conveyor, bucket elevator or any other application that is used to transport or lift product fully loaded the application will run back spilling the product onto the ground, with this happening you will lose product, production & more importantly time. With our new backstop range we can stop this happening. All of our Motovario Backstops are manufactured to the highest quality and will carry the Motovario two year warranty giving the customer peace of mind at an affordable price.

The industry standard way for stopping an application running backwards was to fit a brake motor (which can be costly as it has a higher purchase cost plus the ongoing replacement of wear parts) additionally the cost of the installing the unit also increased as the customer had to install a separate supply to power the brake on the electric motor if there is a Variable Speed Drive (VSD) fitted. With a Motovario backstop being fitted to your application we can replace costly brake motors with standard AC induction motors.

JJ Loughran now have a full stock of anti-run back / Backstop devices for all of our Bevel Helical, Helical Inline & Shaft Mounted Motovario gear units. This allows the user to fit a standard AC motor, as the gearbox can only turn in one direction. The gear unit will mechanically lock into position if the shaft is turned in the opposite direction to which the backstop is fitted.

Motovario gear units that have backstops fitted have no dimensional increase, this ensures the unit remains compact with no machine redesign needed.

JJ Loughran MAC Manager David Kelley commented “With this addition to our large stock profile of gear units we will have even more flexibility to directly interchange with other leading manufactures of gear units such as SEW, Bonfigoili, Nord and Siemens/Flender, to name just a few. By us putting in this additional investment JJ Loughran will reduce down time and lost production costs to our process customers. It will also allow us to have increased availability and flexibility to our customers in the original equipment manufacturing sector.
