Inclined conveyor belts

Marvu supplies a wide range of conveyor belts, and it may be necessary to compensate for differences in height, for example due to buffering in a buffer container or feeding towards a multihead weigher. Inclined belt conveyors, also known as elevator, vertical, swan neck or flighted conveyors, make this possible.

Conveyor with flights

In order to ensure that the products are transported properly and keep the length of the system as compact as possible, an elevator belt is often equipped with ‘flights’. The height of the carrier depends on the product to be transported. In addition, it may be desirable for an inclined belt conveyor to be designed with a bend or even several bends. This changes the slope and makes it possible to adjust the height to be bridged even more precisely.

Troughed conveyor belt

Another possibility is to lay the conveyor belt in a trough shape. With a troughed belt, the side walls of the conveyor are raised and the belt runs away towards the center at an angle, which creates a difference in height between the sides and the center of the belt conveyor. In general, the angle of inclination with troughed conveyor belts is more limited than with a belt with carriers. In addition, kinks are rarely used. An incline conveyor with two bends is also called a swan neck conveyor.

Conveyor drives

Incline conveyors can be driven in different ways, by a gear motor as well as by a drum motor. A control cabinet with a frequency inverter is often added to regulate the speed of the incline conveyor.

Characteristics incline conveyors

Almost all our conveyor belts can be designed as an inclined conveyor belt. This makes it possible to compensate for differences in height for each transport system. For the right choice of an elevator belt, it is important that the product and the production process are mapped out. The characteristics of each type of elevator belt are briefly shown below:
