A new family of pipe pullers from Conair, Cranberry Township, Pa., has up to eight cleated, non-marking belt assemblies with ample contact length for high pulling power without distortion. The largest unit is designed for pipe as large as 40-in. diam. and has eight belts with 8 ft of contact length. The smallest has three belts for pipe or tubing from 1 to 6.5 in. diam.
Belt assemblies (or beams) are positioned evenly around the pipe for support and control. Each beam is powered by its own motor with a speed reducer directly on the belt assembly. All the motors are coordinated to run at the same speed, reducing pipe chatter and cleat wear.
The upper beam assemblies open and close pneumatically to speed set-up, while the lower assemblies are adjusted mechanically for alignment with the extruded pipe. The pneumatic beams open automatically if the emergency stop button is pushed or if power is lost.
