Features And Specifications Of A Vertical Conveyor

Here is a pneumatic vertical conveyor for you to look at so long. This brief account should reflect well on your new impression of vertical conveyors in general. This conveyor can lift as much as five hundred pounds in weight at different levels. Being pneumatic, it has a pneumatically activated VRC. The VRC is using a pneumatic cable cylinder. This cylinder is used to raise and lower the powered vertical conveyor. 

The vertical conveyor will, of course be in operation across different levels. Top range conveyors have the ability to move as quickly as one hundred and fifty feet per minute. But different speeds ranging from thirty to ninety feet per minute (FPM) are in use to help users match infeeding and outfeeding requirements. Shock absorbers are installed at both the top and bottom of these units to ensure the safety and integrity of all products and materials being carried. The conveyor has a cantilever carriage design. Powered conveyors that are driven by chains can manage much heavier loads than the five hundred pounds mentioned earlier.

But multipurpose and premises friendly multi-poly belt conveyors remain suitable for all light loads. All newly prepared units are prewired before being shipped out. Devices are tied into a terminal strip within a junction box. While safety guidelines are always prepared, full PLC controls can be installed as well. This pneumatic vertical conveyor will have been manufactured in accordance with existing ANSI B20 safety recommendations.

To wrap things up, the pneumatic vertical conveyor’s features include product sensing ‘photo eyes’, safety tunnels at entry and exit points and fully guarded or protected frames. It also has safety placards and the free-fall braking system is monitored by CAM. Here is hoping that this brief account has been useful for you.
