Areas of expertise
Richwood focuses on the needs of each application and provides custom engineered solutions. We specialize in eliminating carryback issues with reliable belt cleaning. Richwood helped create CEMA standard 576 for belt cleaning specifications and uses this as a guide for recommendations. The guide measures belt speed, belt width, material being conveyed, its moisture content and the number and type of splices so that the right recommendations can be made, based on the needs of the application.

Richwood also designs safe and contained load zones using the principles of good load zone design. Richwood was instrumental in creating CEMA standard 575 for impact bed and cradle selection.

For containment and wear liner solutions as well as lagging materials Richwood uses proprietary rubber compounds for exponentially longer wear life.
