Stop the Shakin’ with Lovejoy/ROSTA®

Increase Equipment Lifespan and Improve Operation Efficiencies

With a shaker screen thirty feet off the ground, it’s hard to tell the difference in component product quality . . . until the system fails. Then, the welds are cracking and the stairs are shaking enough to jar your teeth not to mention the impact on production when crushers and screens come to a halt because of failure. For the manager pushing his equipment to the limits, or a bit beyond during a heavy production cycle, Lovejoy® ROSTA® demonstrates the solution. Visit the company’s corner booth S-14016 in the IFPE section of CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2005, March 15-19, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lovejoy® ROSTA® features the latest technological advancements and most durable choices for the aggregate and mining industries with its line of tensioners, damping and vibration-limiting parts and equipment. Of particular interest, considering the international nature of the show is Lovejoy’s presence and sterling reputation in more than 55 countries around the world.

Superior Quality

A side-by-side comparison of Lovejoy® ROSTA® oscillating mounts with any competitive product illustrates a clearly visible difference in quality of construction. The Lovejoy ROSTA oscillating mounts contain precisely fit elastomeric elements. These parts generally perform for a minimum of seven years under the most rigorous, demanding punishment an aggregate operation can devise. And, only Lovejoy ® ROSTA® products are designed and constructed exclusively to serve the aggregate and mining industries. The expertise, materials and in-field testing clearly demonstrate a superior product package with Lovejoy® ROSTA®.

Several different demonstrations at the booth help visualize for attendees the superior engineered quality, durability and performance capabilities of the Lovejoy® ROSTA® products. In one demonstration AB oscillating mounts on a shaker screen show how quickly and smoothly the technology performs in start-ups and shut-downs. Another demonstration is actual stairs visitors can climb to feel the degree of vibration isolation offered by the AB and AB-D family of oscillating mounts.

Every plant manager appreciates a product that helps extend the life of other equipment parts to help spare maintenance, labor and replacement expenses. A demonstration of the belt tensioner with SE elements and motorbase shows how this product helps extend belt life.

For the toughest equipment to meet the rigors of your aggregate/construction operation, visit the Lovejoy® ROSTA® booth S-14016 in the IFPE section of ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005, March 15-19 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

ROSTA products are based on rubber suspension elements. Patented in 1941, ROSTA products continue to provide best-in-class performance and are used around the world, in millions of applications, replacing metal springs and spring and bearing combinations, reducing component and assembly cost, while improving product reliability and performance. With no metal-to-metal contact, ROSTA elements eliminate the need for lubrication, avoid failures caused by moisture and rust, diminish audible noise associated with moving metal parts, and are absolutely maintenance free.
