Formed U-Trough Liners (Standard and Full Coverage)

UHMW U-Trough Liners

Material: UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight)

  • Out lasts steel 5 to 6 times longer
  • Liners are 1/3 the weight of steel
  • We pre-form liners for all size troughs
  • Liners are pre-drilled for 5/16” elevator bolts with 14 holes in a 4 foot length (7 per side) that start 1-1/2” down from top edge and 1-1/2” in from either end.
  • 45° beveled ends (each is beveled in the opposite direction)
  • our standard lengths are 4 foot long but we can do up to 12 foot long.

Reasons for 4 foot lengths:

  • Liners can ship by courier instead of common carrier which lessens freight costs
  • 4 foot lengths are easier to install
  • You will notice less buckling between fasteners (less expansion and contraction)

We have full coverage liners which mean the liners go all way up the top of the U-trough, and we have standard coverage which means the liners only go so many inches above the centre line of the U-trough. (This is our most popular) Our Standard thicknesses for U-trough Liners are 3/16”, ¼”, and 3/8” however we can also do ½”, 5/8”, ¾” and 1”

Other points to note:

  1. The products customer is conveying will not stick to liners, so you will eliminate bridging (hang-up problems)
  2. Product will flow easier because of lower coefficient of friction
  3. In turn means less power to convey product which:
    • Saves wear and tare on Drive systems
    • Saves Energy
    • Saves down time
    • Less waste
    • Saves you Money
