The main feature of strap conveyors is that the load-carrying device is a series of closed straps. Movement of the straps is provided by a special drive shaft connected to the output motor drive shaft. Movement straps along a predetermined way are provided by a system of rollers and guides with grooves, made according with the profile of the strap. Depending on the type of product transported in the conveyor system uses several types of strap profile: wedge-shaped,notched,round.
In case of strap conveyors is possible to increase the conveyor length by adding new modules with drive from adjacent conveyor sections. Depending on the application strap conveyors can be used for non- standard solutions. Due to its unique characteristics the strap conveyors are often integrated into the complex conveyor system.
This type of conveyor is widely used in various industries. The most typical examples are:
- Calibration conveyor (vegetables, fruits, etc.)
- Placing boxes on box freezer pallets
- Marking and sealing devices for boxes
- Transporting wafer sheets, fritters and other confectionery products
- Elevating conveyors for boxes
Strap conveyors are highly reliable due to all elements are simple and do not require special maintenance. Construction features protects the drive motor from overload, thereby increasing its service term. Service term depends on operating conditions, and an average is about two years. During operating of equipment may need to check for wear and tension of the straps. Tension is provided by rolls, integrated in the structure of the conveyor. Bearing units are lubricated for all service term and do not require any maintenance. The rest elements (shafts, rolls, frames, etc.) do not require any maintenance except periodic inspection of fasteners for loosening and sanitary cleaning.
