Inclined Belt Conveyors


These belt conveyors are designed for conveying requirements where a steep inclination is necessary. The belts are fitted with vulcanized side walls, corrugated pleats or ribs at a high for product containment coupled with either straight, inclined, or special lipped cleats to provide a containment pocket. Our inclined belt conveyors are available in a variety of carrying capacities and belt types to suit application specifications.

Technical Parameters

  • Available with inclined belt conveyors that are suited to all types of bulk materials including food, feed, grain and seed, minerals, coal, building material, wood chip, sawdust, etc.
  • The side wall is hot vulcanized onto the base belt to provide a molded seal capable of withstanding high stress loads and repeated flexing. The cleats are also hot vulcanized onto the belt material.
  • Available belts materials include: PP / PVC / PU.
  • Belt widths are available from 500mm through to 2500mm with a selection of thicknesses between 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, and 10mm.
  • Our inclined belt conveyors are suited for controlled feed through the incorporation of alternative feeding units, i.e. vibro feeder and belt feeder.
  • Frame and component assemblies are fabricated from painted carbon steel or 304 stainless steel.
  • Provided with positive belt drive arrangement via a shaft mounted gear unit that is directly coupled drive pulley.
