Driving Belts – 3⁄16″ diameter round urethane “O” rings from drive shaft to tread rollers.
– 7″ x 1-1⁄2″ x 12 gauge powder painted formed steel channel frame with heavy duty cross braces and splice plates.
1.9″ diameter x 16 gauge galvanized steel tread rollers with 7⁄16″ hex shaft and sealed, greased for life bearings, spaced on 3″ centers.
Sensing Device
NEMA 1 photoelectric sensor in each zone detects presence of product and activates accumulation feature in the trailing zone if upstream zone is occupied.
Power Supply
– 120 VAC power supply controls accumulation feature with 24 VDC output. Power supply will control 50 accumulation zones.
Air Requirements
20 to 35 psi recommended operating pressure with free air consumption of .0062 cu. ft. per sensor operation.
Accumulation Zones
– 24″, 30″, or 36″ long, air operated.  Conveyor frame length changes with zone lengths.  Note: Zone length must be evenly divisible by roller centers.
– Supplied loose for mounting to conveyor side frame, with 3⁄8″ NPT ports.
Guard Rails
– 1-1⁄2″ x 1-1⁄2″ x 12 guage galvanized guard rails – both sides. NOTE: Product contact with guard rails will affect product flow.
Floor Supports
– Adjustable 31-1⁄2″ to 45-1⁄2″ from floor to top of tread roller.
One support supplied at each end of conveyor and at each bed joint.
– 2 foot module with motor and reducer.  Drive module will be bolted to intermediate section.
Drive Shaft
– 1″ diameter steel shaft, driven by motor and reducer, runs full length of conveyor. Chain coupling supplied at bed joints to couple sections together.
Drive Spools – Delrin spools located on drive shaft supplies driving power to tread rollers.
Drive Shaft Bearings
– Sealed, pre lubricated, self-aligning, precision ball bearings on drive shaft.
Speed Reducer
– C-Face mounted heavy duty worm gear reducer.
Motor -1⁄2 HP 230/460/3-60 TE motor.
Drive Guard
– Expanded metal guard full length of conveyor covers drive shaft and other moving drive components.
Conveying Speed
– 60 FPM constant.
– 15 lbs. per tread roller maximum.  Not to exceed Load Capacity Chart.
(For Optional Equipment, Weight Specifications, and Engineering Line Drawings, please see catalog pages, above).

Conveying Speed – Constant and variable speeds from 30 to 120 FPM available.

Timing Belt Drive – For speeds 90 FPM and above a timing belt drive in lieu of #50 chain drive is recommended.

Roller Centers – 2-1⁄4”, 4”, 6”, or 8” centers. NOTE: Capacities change as roller centers change. See engineering section of price list for capacity changes.

Accumulation Zones – 18”long, air operated. Conveyor frame lengths change with zone lengths. NOTE: Zone length must be evenly divisible by roller centers.

Floor Supports – Lower or higher supports available. Minimum elevation with standard drive mounting is 18″ from floor to top of rollers.

Powered Right Angle Belt Transfer – Air operated pop-up round belt transfer mounted in 32″ long modular section, 75 lbs. maximum unit load.- Reversing UBT is 39″ long.

Package Stops – Manual or air operated, blade or roller stops available.

Slug Release – Allows for conveyor to be quickly unloaded when accumulation feature is not required.

Motor – Single phase, energy efficient, explosion proof, etc. Other HP available.

Ceiling Hangers – 1⁄2″ diameter threaded rods 8 feet long with locking nuts and mounting hardware.

Jump Chain – One-to-one chain drive moves drive shaft to opposite side for driving various optional accessories.
