ROSTA: bigger and brighter than ever
THE widely known ROSTA range of rubber torsion element products have been providing solutions to the mining, oil and gas industries in fixed, modular and mobile plant — as well as a myriad of other industries — for 73 years.
The ROSTA Australia subsidiary in Malaga, WA, was established by ROSTA AG Switzerland in January 2015 to service the Australia and Asia Pacific region, following many decades of ROSTA product promotion by agents and distributors.
ROSTA Australia’s vast stock holding is for the support of its distributor network, OEMs and end-users.
ROSTA Australia staff collectively has more than 50 years of experience with ROSTA products and have seen the development of many solutions from concept to reality.
ROSTA’s Main Product Categories
ROSTA Oscillating Mountings offer a broad range of units including AB mounts which are used for screen and feeder suspension for fixed, modular and mobile plant applications in the mining and quarrying industries to replace coil springs, rubber block and airbag systems.
The AB mounts have proven to be reliable and long lasting, even in hostile environments which has endeared them to end users and OEMs alike.
ROSTA Single Pivot MB Motorbases are used for maintaining belt tension on V Belt drives, such as those used on crushers, feeders, screens, fans, pumps and just about any application which utilises V belts. Sizes range from 0.75kW to more than 550kW.
ROSTA ATEX Single Pivot MB Motorbases are suitable for applications in hazardous areas according to the ATEX 94/9/EC Directive.
ROSTA Superior Lift Motorbases are used in overhead drive applications, and are especially suited to pump drives. These motorbases eliminate the often-used vertical jacking bolt system and makes belt changes safer, quicker and easier as the V belt drive alignment is maintained throughout the motor movement range. As with the company’s whole MB ROSTA Motorbase range, there is a noticeable improvement in pulley and V belt life as belt tension is maintained for a longer period when compared to a fixed system.
ROSTA Tensioners for chain drives range from 3/8” pitch upwards.
As well as the standard ROSTA SE type Tensioners, ROSTA produce custom Tensioners to suit just about any drive application.
ROSTA Anti-Vibration Mounts are used for isolation of vibration and impact from surrounding structures. These are especially useful for absorbing high impact loads on conveyor transfer point applications.
ROSTA Rubber Suspension units are modular components that ROSTA produces in a variety of designs which find their way into innovative engineering designs the world over.
As well as its range of standard products, ROSTA’s ability to design, analyse and produce custom rubber torsion elements is second to none.
The company is proud of its products, and quality validation is of the highest importance.
A well-equipped research and development department leaves nothing to chance; the materials tests that take place before and periodically during production are the guarantees for a comprehensive quality standard – so customers can be rest assured that a spare part element produced in 10 years’ time will have the same characteristics as the one supplied today.
ROSTA is in its element providing customer support and assistance to find a possible solution, independent of the type of industry.
