Buzzi Unicem USA Expands Usage of Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys

Buzzi Unicem USA recently incorporated Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys into the new synthetic gypsum receiving system at its Greencastle, Indiana cement plant. This is in addition to the successful use of Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys at the company's Pryor, OK; Stockertown, PA; and Festus, MO cement plants. The Pryor plant improved the performance of its 550 foot long reclaim tunnel reclaim conveyor by installing two model 630H 50 HP Motorized Pulleys, solving two chronic problems: start-up under load and empty belt start-up bounce on concave curve.

Hunterston Deepwater Coal Port Installs Powerful 330HP Rulmeca Motorized Pulley

Clydeport recently upgraded its primary ship loader (180 HP) and dock conveyor (330 HP) drives with powerful Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys at the Hunterston Deepwater Coal Port in Fairlie, Largs, Scotland. This follows several years of successful testing of the drives elsewhere at the facility.


Rulmeca is celebrating 50 years of activity this year. Since its founding in 1962 in Alme, Italy, the company has adapted with the market. There are now 22 Rulmeca companies globally, which specialise in the sales and production of rollers, Motorized Pulleys and components for bulk handling belt conveyors.

Buzzi Unicem's Pryor, OK plant completely eliminated four foot belt bounce in concave belt curve with dual 50 HP Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys in the head and tail positions of reclaim tunnel conveyor. By both "pulling" and "pushing" the belt simultaneously belt bounce mechanical damage was eliminated.

Rulmeca Corporation will exhibit Motorized Pulleys & Dual Drives with VFDs at MINExpo 2012 in Las Vegas September 24-26, 2012 in Central Hall Booth #4615.
