Belt conveyor systems are used to transfer either loose or solid materials both horizontally and at inclined angles. These conveyors can be supplied with solid or interlinked mesh belts, with or without flights dependent upon requirements and can be used a simple transfer systems, feeding devices or as batch or continuous weighers.
Roller conveyor systems are generally utilised where containerised or solid materials are to be handled. They can be supplied as powered or gravity type and can incorporate bespoke lifting transfer mechanisms, corners and automated holding areas etc.
When pneumatic systems are not feasible and insufficient space is available for an inclined conveyor system material can be elevated using bucket type elevators. Various forms are available dependent upon materials, throughputs etc. In general terms these elevator systems collect material into a bucket or enclosure which is attached to the elevation system (belt, chain etc.). Numerous buckets are located upon the elevation system which lift the material vertically to the required height before discharging it through a connecting chute to the downstream process.
