PLASTIC BELT CONVEYOR
OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE THROUGH TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION
The efforts of Conveyor
Technologies Ltd. and a leading manufacturer of Modular Plastic Belting have
resulted in a remarkable line of Modular Belt Conveyors that offer optimum
over-all performance, durability and belt life.
These conveyors combine the latest in beneficial technology, with time
proven belting manufacturer’s recommendations that contribute to this over-all
superiority. “Automatic controlled
back tension” maintains proper belt and sprocket engagement contributing to
increased life of belt and sprockets. A
secondary function of this action is to eliminate the negative effects of linear
belt variations caused by wear, load, and thermal change.
Sprockets are sized to provide low chordal action to achieve smooth
operation, reduced sprocket and belt wear, lower noise, and belt pulsation, and
improved conveyed products mobile stability. Dynamic belt tracking at both ends
of conveyor eliminates belt edge, and retainer wear created by static edge
tracking, as well as lateral belt drift. This
same system reduces both belt and sprocket wear created by the drive and tail
sprockets through a self-synchronizing pre-loading action.
A consistent 200 degree drive pulley wrap maintained by the uniform back
tension, enhances belt and sprocket engagement while reducing wear.
This “Automatic Back Tension” can be readily augmented for higher
speeds and loads. To ease
maintenance, end drive units permit rapid access to the interior without
separating or removing the belt. Precise
bearing alignment is insured by exclusive use of heavy-duty, self-aligning,
sealed ball bearings. All bearings are included in the two-year unlimited hour
warranty. A unique internal belt
support system allows removing supports without belt removal.
Belt wear and temperature generated by these supports has also been
greatly reduced. Thermal
compensation of internal supports prevents buckling and its related wear.
All units incorporate a reduced height beyond the drive end to allow
fitting into shallow height applications. Conveyors
are available with entry nose bar for small part transfer.
Units are offered in .5 or 1 inch pitch belting in widths from 2 to 24
inches and lengths to 29 feet. Quiet,
compact drives occupying approximately one-half the space of conventional
systems, are free of high wear couplings, belts, chain, and sprockets.
These gearmotor units are totally free of “Conventional Routine
Maintenance”, and can be replaced, ready to run, in under five minutes.
Unlike other units, drives do not require disengagement when threading
the belt through the conveyor.
