Minimum Maintenance - Long Belt
In cost comparisons between mechanical elevators and SIDEWALL BELT systems it has been proven that the SIDEWALL BELT has considerable advantages. The belt itself requires no maintenance and the reduced number of moving parts plus simple conveyor construction virtually eliminates costly downtime.
Wide Range of Materials can be Handled
With the extensive range of belt sizes available, the SIDEWALL CONVEYOR BELT is capable of handling almost all materials: large lumps, free flowing, delicate or fragile substances, highly abrasive material, light weight or heavy loads. Our application engineers have the experience and a thorough working knowledge to specify the system to suit your needs.
Low Power Requirement, Quiet Smooth Running
A clear advantage of using an SIDEWALL CONVEYOR BELT system is the low power required to move the loaded belt. Because the system can elevate at steep angles (up to 90 deg.), centre distances tend to be small and even in high lift applications power required to elevate is considerably less than in other systems. As the belt is running on rotating idlers, the low resistance results in a quiet system, an advantage when operating in close proximity to personnel. Where environmental factors need to be considered, the system can be totally enclosed.
