New Brochure from Lovejoy®/ROSTA® Details Type AB Mount Engineering and Use

What does the loaf of bread on your table have in common with your driveway? Both end products stem from an initial process that sorted and sifted the raw materials, grain or aggregates, on shaker screens.

Multiple industries utilize shaker screens for sorting and processing. And the solution to providing maximum shaker screen stability, safety and efficiency is the same in each industrial application - the Lovejoy®/ROSTA® type AB oscillating mount. A new, comprehensive, 12-page brochure available from Lovejoy, Inc, of Downers Grove, Illinois lends details the engineering specifications and multiple advantages the AB-type mount offers compared to less effective alternatives.

The different styles are detailed, including the heavy-duty types AB 50 and AB50-2 Twin, and type AB-D, the solution for shorter stroke systems. Typical calculations for determining the best product for an application are included, as well as charts that list the sizes and weight bearing capabilities for each type and model, installation guidelines and drive options.

Multiple drawings, photos and specifications make it easy to determine the right type of AB oscillating mount for an application. Photos demonstrate usage in multiple types of applications including vegetable and grain screeners, a recycling and waste application, a dewatering screen and a gravel feeder.

The Lovejoy®/ROSTA® type AB oscillating mounts supply both acoustic and vibration isolation. They are easily adaptable to conventional screens and in the long term, the operator will reap the extended benefits of reduced operating costs. ROSTA® oscillating elements are designed to withstand harsh, corrosive environments, for a longer lifespan than any other type of suspension system. The incredible level of screen control translates into less wear and tear on supporting equipment, and longer lifespan on frame-supporting steelwork mechanisms, bearings and v-belts. And ROSTA® parts are designed with the busy plant operator in mind – they require no maintenance. Once properly installed, an operator can count on peak performance for years.

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.

Founded in 1900, Lovejoy enjoys an international reputation as the leading company specializing in flexible coupling design and development.
