Incline – Elevating Conveyors
Inclined belt conveyors or elevators are used to transport products or items from one level to another via a flexible or hinged belt. During incline or decline products can be controlled by cleats on the belt or kept on the belt by flights or side rail systems. Some elevating conveyors have fixed angles of incline whilst adjustable angles of incline are possible for some designs of incline conveyor.
It is possible to have flat runs either side of your incline conveyor this is often called an swan neck conveyor. These conveyor systems are supplied with either a PVC belt or modular plastic belting. Another variation is a metal modular or “Piano Hinge” belt that is used for products with sharp edges or in higher temperature applications.
The speeds at which inclined belts can be run at is very dependent upon the products that are being handled, but variable speeds can be achieved by incorporating an inverter.
