With more than 50 years experience, Ralphs-Pugh is a recognized industry leader in designing and fabricating conveyor rollers and components.
Ralphs-Pugh provides quality products, competitive prices, and outstanding customer service.
Products include sprocket and grooved rollers for powered systems, urethane tapered rollers, one-way rollers and troughing units.
Components include bushing/end plug inserts and commercial and precision bearing inserts for metal and plastic tubing.
Manufactured to customer specifications, Ralphs-Pugh offers metal rollers in a wide range of bearings, tube, and shaft configurations.
Drive options include sprockets and grooves. Typical applications include package and unit handling, cargo handling, and food and beverage processing.
Ralphs-Pugh plastic rollers are available in a wide range of bearings, tube, and shaft combinations. Plastic rollers are ideal for light duty gravity applications, humid, corrosive or wet environments. Typical applications include food processing, chemical or acidic environments, battery handling, and package handling.
Ralphs-Pugh also offers a unique range of urethane elastomers, combining many of the advantages of rigid plastics, metals, and ceramics with the elasticity of rubber.
Urethane resists abrasion and reduces the affects of shock and impact on load bearing capacity. Urethane covered rollers will not slip like PVC and will not mar conveyed materials which metal rollers are apt to do. Urethane provides the ultimate in wear resistance and noise dampening, making it the material of choice for our sleeved and tapered rollers. In addition, our urethane shaft adapters, when placed over the roller shaft ends, eliminate frame wear caused by metal-to-metal contact and extend the life of your conveyor frame.
Ralphs-Pugh also has a wide range of cantilever rollers in many combinations of bearings, shafts and tube materials. The cantilever rollers are available in both gravity and powered applications. Cantilevered rollers are unique in that one end of the roller is capped preventing any type of contamination from reaching the bearing.
The opposite end has an extended fixed shaft that can be threaded or standard finish.
Typical applications are vertical guide rollers and belt guides.
