The profiled absorber type TR-L, from ACE's innovative TUBUS series, is a self-contained element made from a special Co-Polyester elastomer and requires no maintenance. The radial deformation of the TR series provides a very long and smooth deceleration with progressive energy absorption throughout the stroke. The excellent characteristics of the material gives it satisfactory efficiency over a temperature range of -40°C to 90°C. This form of tube buffer has been specially developed for applications requiring very low reaction forces. The force generated depends on the selected tube length. The TUBUS TR-L is suitable for a wide range of applications that require protection against impacts or shocks along a straight line. Typical applications include mining equipment, dock handling equipment, luggage handling equipment and other conveyors. The TR-L series has been specially developed to provide maximum power capacity in a minimum space requirement, with a capacity range from 7.2 Nm to 10,780 Nm.
The service life is extremely high: up to 20 times longer than polyurethane buffers, up to 10 times longer than rubber buffers and up to 5 times longer than steel springs.
