Formsprag Clutch has introduced a high-speed backstop, Model FHB, for mining applications. The backstop is designed with inner race centrifugal throw-out sprags to meet the backstopping requirements of inclined conveyors or bucket elevators that use a gear reducer with the backstop mounted externally on the high-speed or intermediate shaft. This maintenance-free unit features a high speed range and torque capacity in a small envelope and has a bearing B-10 life of more than 100 years. It is offered in bore ranges from 1.13 in. to 3.75 in., with metric bores available. Altra Industrial Motion
