Hytrol gravity and belt conveyors, inclined and horizontal

Conveyors, Roller, Gravity, and Powered

see below for useful guidelines in selecting the right conveyor for your application

Begin by Providing the Following Information:

First, select the TYPE Conveyor below...



  • Horizontal Belt Conveyors are used to move product at either a constant or variable speed at a typical work height of 30 - 34 inches or whatever you specify. Constant speeds are available from 7 fpm to 165 fpm. The most common speed is 65 fpm. Horizontal belt conveyors use a variety of belt materials, from friction surface to PVC-120 COS Gloss, to "rough-top" to suit your application They accommodate almost any product of any size, shape, and weight.

  • Inclined Belt Conveyors are used to move product from floor to floor, either up, down, or both ways (reversible). The dimensions of the product being conveyed are important. The relationship between product height and product length (going in the line of travel) determines the maximum angle at which the conveyor can be situated without the center of gravity causing the product to tumble back down. Double nose-overs are used to graduate the transition of the product from diagonal to horizontal at the discharge end of the conveyor.  Each nose-over section should be long enough to accommodate  2/3 the length of the product to assure a smooth transition. Roller conveyors are usually situated at the discharge end, and power-feeder sections (of belt conveyor) at the infeed end.

  • Ball Transfer Tables are used to allow a product to be manually turned or rotated for assembly applications, or to permit an abrupt perpendicular transition of products from adjacent parallel conveyor lines. They consist of a series of steel or nylon balls in sealed roller-bearing cups, spaced on centers suitable to the product dimensions.

  • Gravity Roller Conveyors use rollers instead of wheels to move the product.  The product should have a fairly smooth and uniform conveying surface. In determining roller centers (as with Live Roller Conveyors), the product should have a minimum of 3 rollers beneath it. Gravity roller conveyors will not allow products to orient properly around a curve unless you specify "tapered rollers". Tapering the roller causes a speed differential on the curve and facilitates product orientation. Gravity roller conveyors will accommodate any size product of any weight and size, and begin with a 1-3/8 in. diameter roller up to a 3-1/2 in. diameter roller ... and larger, depending on the required capacity.
