Limiting noise from conveyor rollers

A primary source of plant noise stems from conveyor rollers. If one roller makes a mild rattle or squeal, it's not hard to imagine the effect of hundreds or thousands of rollers running simultaneously. A noisy conveyor system running through a facility can emit high decibel levels all along its route, creating a major noise problem for a large portion of the plant.
