Technology Updates: UHMW Guides

As an option on all conveyors, Eaglestone is pleased to offer guides made from oil-impregnated UHMW (ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene). These plastic extrusions feature excellent impact strength and abrasion resistance, as well as a low coefficient of friction and very good chemical resistance.

The high lubricity of UHMW makes it an excellent choice for conveyor guides, as there is less wear and tear on the corners of the conveyors. UHMW is also moisture, stain and odor resistant, and is FDA approved for food industry conveyors.

For more information on this or any of the other many reasons why you should choose Eaglestone for your next conveyor, please feel free to contact us at any time.
