They are also good for areas where noise needs to be taken into consideration as belt conveyors do not emit a lot of sound.
For a heavy-duty applications belt over rollers are used to eliminate friction from the belt to move heavier items. This prevents slippage from the driving pulley under weight and excess wear on the belt.
Belt conveyors are most beneficial where precise movement is necessary due to scanning, induction or positioning for out feed. Belt conveyors are also able to accumulate using the indexing technique or be used as a continuous running system.
Batcor Industries is the sole agent and distributor of the YS Conveyor. This is a modular type belt conveyor that is most suited to the mining or hospitality industry. This conveyor is built using belt over trough style rollers or trough deck to contain loose product such as dirt or slurry.
It can also be used as an incline conveyor with the use of segmented cleats. It is manufactured to withstand the harsh treatment of the outdoors and strong enough to survive an operator with a fork lift.
Being a modular conveyor all parts are off the shelf and can be replaced with no down time. There is no restriction on length and it can be completely assembled within days.
Applications of Belt Conveyors:
- Scanning - Bar code reading
- Induction - Precise alignment
- Sanitary - Stainless steel food grade quality available
- Horticultural - Moving loose product continually
Advantages of Belt Conveyors:
- Safety - Less moving parts
- Low Noise - Where noise levels must be kept to minimum
- Better Control - Where movement on conveyor is an issue
