Impact Bed

Wing Pulley by Superior Industries

cushion the blow

Did you ever participate in the egg drop experiment during science class? (Your goal was to create the most protective packaging so the brittle egg inside was cushioned during the drop.) That simple experiment is similar to the concept of an impact bed.

Constructed with energy-absorbing materials, the impact bed is designed to protect conveyor belting from the beating of falling material within the load zone.

Actually, the material doesn’t always need to be big and lumpy. Sometimes, impact beds are used to soften the blow of material from extended distances as it free falls from discharge chute to hopper target.

  • Belt widths 24” or 72” (609 – 1,828mm)
  • Lengths 4′ – 5′ (1.2m or 1.5m)
  • Standard Duty: up to 200 lbs/ft (91kg)
