Reciprocating conveyors

Article-Reciprocating conveyors

The co. says its line of vertical reciprocating conveyors (VRCs) reduce horsepower requirements and power consumption. All have counterweighted lift mechanisms. A shaft-mounted drive reduces maintenance without a loss of power. Counterweights cut the live load in half and are incorporated into all of the VRCs. A four-post design is standard, as is top-to-bottom guarding regardless of load capacity. Unit-load capacities are available up to 6,000 lb, with a vertical travel of up to 100 ft. Load and unload points can be incorporated at any height and any side of the unit to permit "Z", "C" or right-angle flow. Lift speeds range from 10 to 200 fpm.
