Remembering Jim Mawson

by NichoIas Braime

I would like to pay tribute to Jim Mawson, our Senior Technical Manager, close colleague and personal friend, who died on 12th February.  Jim joined the company in July 1983 at the young age of 60  [..]. Jim was instrumental in helping start 4B Components, our US subsidiary, [...]. He gained world wide respect as an expert in the elevating and conveying of granular bulk materials, loved to help find solutions, and, through doing so, gained many friends ...  - See complete article and SLIDESHOW.

4B keeps up Investment

With new facilities just opened in the USA, Australia and South Africa, new production machinery added in our Leeds factory, and a new IT system just about to be introduced, 2012 is a year of growth for 4B. We believe that the continued investment in our manufacturing and customer service will improve value for our customers.

New Premises

4B Australia, 4B Africa and 4B USA have now moved to bigger premises, as they had outgrown their old buildings. Thanks to the new offices and the much bigger warehouses, we will be able to maintain higher stock levels and further improve our operating efficiencies in order to offer our customers most products from stock and to continue to provide the highest level of customer support. 

Expansion of 4B's Elevator Bucket Production

We can now offer a bigger version of our popular pressed steel Super Starco elevator bucket: the SPS 630-215  bucket. This has been facilitated by the acquisition of a bigger press. It also means we can offer thicker stainless steel options than previously supplied.  Contact us for further details.

Steel Web Elevator Belts

Steel Web elevator belts are mainly used in very tall grain elevators and cement elevators.  These industries have experienced for many years the recurrent need to re-splice overly stretched textile belts and to address belt tracking issues.
The need for a belt with low-stretch and straight-running characteristics was clear.
The result: 4B’s Steel Web Belt.

The innovative steel web carcass construction of 4B’s Steel Web Belt yields a maximum permanent belt elongation of 0.35%; in other words, a belt that virtually does not stretch... 

Rub Block vs. Touchswitch

Belt misalignment is a common problem in belt conveyors and bucket elevators. When the belt is severely misaligned it can cause damage to the machine casing while generating dangerous heat in dust hazard environments. 
Two typical methods of detecting belt misalignment are the rub block and the Touchswitch. Read more...


Speed Switch Calibration & Testing Device 
4B has developed a new device to make the testing of speed switches quick and easy. The SpeedMaster™ with Pulse Pilot is the only device that accurately tests the calibration of a speed switch, and allows testing of the 10% alarm and 20% shutdown features of the sensor while installed on the machine shaft.  Read more...
