SLIDEWAYS SUCCESSES: ROLLERS
Commercial Composting Facility Replaces Steel with UHMW
The Challenge: Rollers used in a commercial composting facility were failing prematurely due to the damp, corrosive environment.
The Slideways Solution: Since water is an excellent lubricant for UHMW, Slideways recommended replacing the steel rollers with an all-plastic roller constructed with PVC tubing and UHMW bearings.The rollers have been in service for years with no maintenance.
