Carrollton, Texas (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
ELS, the industry leader for bagging handling systems operation and maintenance in partnership with Schneider Electric, an energy management global specialist and Advantage Industrial Automation, a Schneider Electric Channel Partner is pleased to announce the launch of the innovative PWR-LESS baggage handling pusher solution. This retrofit solution can be implemented on all current clutch-brake pusher assemblies and has been specifically designed to address the costs associated with pusher maintenance and their high energy waste.
Unfortunately, traditional BHS pusher configurations have become a significant point of failure within airport baggage scanning and sortation systems because of the high instantaneous impact loading placed on the internal components. Pushers are also a high energy user because the electric motor is required to run even while the pusher is in standby mode. The new retrofit available from Elite Line Services considerably improves the reliability and lowers its costs by eliminating the need to keep the electric motor running when it is not in use, while also smoothing the pusher’s activation to greatly reduce the high forces applied on the internal workings when diverting heavy luggage to other conveyor lines.
Overall, this clutch-brake replacement system can result in energy savings of up to 98% and at the same time reduce system downtime and the cost of future maintenance and spare parts when compared to existing designs. The PWR-LESS total installation solution provided by ELS can be scheduled during non-operational hours to eliminate the time the baggage handling system is out of action.
