Frame – Heavy duty 12-1/2″ deep x 7 gauge powder painted formed steel channel with heavy duty cross braces.  Frames are bolted  with spice plates and floor supports.
– 2-1/2″ diameter x 11 gauge steel rollers, grease packed and labyrinth sealed bearings, 11/16″ hex shaft.  Rollers are spaced on 4″ or 6″ centers, set 7/8″ low.
Floor Supports
– Adjustable 25-5/8″ to 30-1/4″ (HD-4) from floor to top of roller, for each end of conveyor and at each bed joint along with knee braces for each support.  Supports on 5 foot centers, change with zone length.  Minimum elevation with standard drive location 24″.
– Located near center of conveyor length, underneath conveyor frame.
Drive Chain
– RC #40 for roller to roller connections, RC #60 chain drives each zone.
Chains are totally enclosed by metal guards.
Accumulation Zones
– Standard zone lengths are 60″ long with a maximum of 30 zones per single drive.
Each zone is controlled by photo eye.
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.
– 3/4 HP 230/460-3-60 TE motor.
Electrical Controls
– 120 VAC Input power supply. Power supply has an output of 24VDC, 4 amp maximum.
Power Supply
– 120 VAC power supply controls accumulation feature with 24VDC output.  Power supply will control 50 accumulation zones.
Conveyor Speed
– 30 FPM constant roller speed.
– Minimum unit load – 50 pounds. 4000 pounds maximum unit load.  Total conveyor live load not to to exceed Load Capacity Chart (see catalog page).  For loads less than 50lbs. you must consult the factory.
Speed Reducer
– Heavy duty, sealed worm gear, C-Face reducer.
– Non-reversing sealed pre-lubricated with cast iron housing
Mounted to conveyor side frame.  50 PSI recommended operating pressure with free air consumption of .001 cu. ft. per sensor operation.
(For Optional Equipment, Weight Specifications, and Engineering Line Drawings, please see catalog pages, above).

Floor Supports – Higher or lower supports available, adjustable or fixed type.
Side Mounted Drive – Drive unit mounted to side of conveyor in lieu of underneath conveyor frame. 14″ minimum elevation to the top of roller.
Time Delay Restart – Allows for product to be unloaded from discharge zone of conveyor without immediate movement of next load into discharge zone. Conveyor Speed – Constant and variable speeds between 10 and 70 FPM available.
Motor – Single phase, energy efficient, explosion proof, etc. Other HP available.
Electrical Controls – Magnetic starters and push button stations; manual motor starters with overload protection, others.
Optional Loads – Capacity available to 6000 Ibs. unit loads.
Rollers Set High – Rollers set 1 ⁄4″ high above side rail. Frame is 11-3⁄8″ deep x 7 gauge formed steel channel.
