Designer belts

These belt conveyors combine proven designs with durable construction. They are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations to accommodate the inspection, cooling, storing or transporting of product. They feature a modular design that allows for change, thereby offering a wide range of options including stainless or mild steel construction, and a choice of bed, belt, pulley or discharge options.

Watch your speed

The new QC700 Series worm gear speed reducers are designed for applications that experience aggressive washdown, heavy shock loading or frequent motor changes. The speed reducer uses a patent pending “quick connect” coupling system that enables the motor to connect and disconnect from the reducer without the need for a large coupling alignment hole in the NEMA flange. The design reduces the flange length, allowing all the benefits of a coupling-mounted speed reducer without displacing valuable design space.

Narrow driving ahead

The NarrowDrive, designed for small-sized belt conveyors, is a compact, environment-friendly component. The unit consists of a crowned two-section roller and an integrated motor drive which is installed within a conveyor frame. It is driven by a brushless DC motor with control card. This self-contained driving component will increase the operating security of conveyors as there is no risk of damage through protruding gearboxes. For installation, it will be available as a complete solution, consisting of the DC drive unit, a 1.97 inch (50 mm) idler roller and the mounting brackets, and will be available by spring 2005.

Into the hopper

The C-33 vacuum conveyor is a solution for the preliminary stage of the packaging process, which requires that a filler tube or hopper be loaded with the product being packaged. These conveyors transport up to 10-15 tons/hour of material into the hopper or filler tube. Additionally, in order to meet the strict regulations of the food industry, the C-33 has been examined and accepted by the USDA and complies with the 3A standard.

Three-in-one product

This adjustable hopper is a new conveyor accessory that includes two other products: flared side rails and end stops. Flared side rails can be used as a stand-alone accessory, or, by adding end stops, can create accessories for other applications. Flared side rails are ideal for applications that require a drop zone wider than the width of the conveyor. End stops can be used in conjunction with the flared side rail to allow better control in directing product flow.
