The latest vertical lift motorbase (MBVL) to offer a variety of innovative features to material processors has been installed into an Australian coal preparation plant by Crushing & Mining Equipment (CME).
The new MBVL is designed to meet the need for constant belt tension within vertically driven slurry and de-watering pumps by utilizing ROSTA’s rubber suspension technology to provide exceptional belt life, electronic motor vibration isolation and energy savings.
CME says the product is a breakthrough for the market because it has an enclosed jacking assembly and maintains tension throughout the life of the belt. This feature reduces costs through minimized downtime and energy savings through proper belt tension. The MBVL also offers a high degree of operator safety, increased service life for belts, pulleys and motors, and continuous alignment of belt pulleys.
CME’s national ROSTA product manager Mark Philpot says, “With the introduction of the MBVL-Vertical Lift Motorbase for slurry and dewatering pumps along with the highly successful ROSTA pre-tensioning motorbase range for screen, crusher and cooling fan drives, CME is now able to offer superior belt tensioning solutions to meet all mining, quarrying and heavy-industry customer demands.”
The company has been designing, engineering and manufacturing a range of heavy-duty motorbases for the Australian market for more than a decade. CME can manufacture to site-specific requirements utilizing ROSTA technology.
CME is a subsidiary of H-E Parts International, which is a leading global crushing equipment and parts supplier to the materials processing sector. Its core business is the supply of world class manganese crusher liners, while also manufacturing its own jaw and vertical shaft impact crushers.
The company’s service division comprises workshop, fabrication, manufacturing, engineering and on-site service, including service of Raptor cone crushers and Tesab Engineering track crushing, screening and conveying equipment.
