Barnes Rotary Drum Filter Product Improvement

A recent development from Barnes Engineers is the exclusive torque guard assembly for the Rotary Drum Filter units.  This device which is available as an option on new units or as a retrofit for older filters, provides over torque protection of the drag conveyor system through an adjustable spring limit switch assembly that automatically resets itself after a jam has been cleared.

This is another example of Barnes International's goal of continuous product improvement.  We are always striving to provide our customers with the most trouble free filters available in the marketplace.
