KB54: Use of looping pit

Category: Control Considerations | Updated: 6/12/2007 8:19:20 AM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 6363 (Last: 9/22/2019 7:41:41 PM)

Resolution

In long feed length operations it is often impossible to accumulate two feed lengths of slack at conventional stock line heights. Digging a looping pit in the floor to gain a larger drop in the looping area can answer these problems. The depth of the pit can be readily calculated when application specifications are made know.
