ESP is a program that gives extra attention to building conveyors with unique dimensions and characteristics beyond the dimensions of regular conveyor platforms. Needing a twin-belt conveyor to best perform the customer's application, the co. designed the system around its 2200 Series conveyors with the drive motor located in the center of the longer conveyor. This design element was key because it combined the conveyors into a twin-belt arrangement, allowing for one less drive motor and requiring less space for the conveyors. The bearings on the 2200 Series conveyor are now installed into a newly redesigned blind housing hole instead of a through hole. This protects the bearings from premature damage or corrosion, adding strength and longevity to the conveyor, the co. says.
