Their free rolling ability is particularly useful where long distances of travel are necessary with a minimum gravity decline. Wheel conveyors are available in two types, steel wheels for medium-weight handling and nylon wheels for lightweight use.
Both systems are interchangeable and offer a choice of widths and lengths. Wheel conveyors work ei ciently with a pitch ( or axle spacing ) of 75mm or 150mm, depending upon the type of goods to be handled.
Wheel positions can be varied to suit individual requirements by adjusting the wheel spacers and by adding or removing wheels as required. Wheel Conveyor Frame (65x 25x 2.5 channel) Available in both straight and curved sections, the side channel is made from 2.5mm thick material, folded into a ‘C’ section for strength.
The cross members are made from 2.5mm steel, formed and strategically welded into position to reinforce the section and provide a bed for the rigid support. There are standard lengths for straight sections (1500mm and 3000mm) and curves (45 degree and 90 degree).
Both are available in standard overall widths of 300mm and 450mm. Sections interlock to form a positive and secure join between frames, allowing the flexibility to add or reduce sections as required. Straight sections incorporate a bar coupler at one end and a hook coupler at the other. Curved sections have universal couplers at both ends.
