Goessling GmbH and Goessling USA have been designing and building complete scrap handling and distribution systems for over 30 years. The systems start with our durable hinged steel belt. The 5” pitch hinged belt segments are made of cold-rolled, high strength sheet steel and are always one solid piece over the total effective width of the belt (available in widths up to 72”), eliminating gaps for the material being transferred to potentially get stuck. The “pimpled” belt segments are designed without protruding hinges, making the belt surface flat and smooth which aids in the prevention of fine scrap jamming in between the hinges. By utilizing hollow pin roller drive chains on the hinged belt, every cross pin (which connects the hinged belt segments) can be replaced individually without disassembling the belt chains (the chains remain completely assembled). The use of our “PS” side-wings on both sides of the belt tighten the complete belt surface, eliminating scrap from penetrating under the belt. Machined side rails cover the top of the hinged belt side-wings and the drive chains, minimizing gaps to tenths of a millimeter. The belt moves on hardened flanged rollers inside the drive chains on both belt sides, extending the life of the belt chains. The runner system for these flanged rollers inside of the conveyor are covered with special hardened manganese steel flat bars, making the complete system extremely durable. The systems utilize an open-frame design with removable side panels simplifying maintenance and service requirements. Several options are available for use in conjunction with the system such as top covers, oil pans, lubrication oilers, emergency cords, balers, weighing systems and brushing systems just to name a few.
