Inclined belt conveyor are essential for production systems that need to transport materials from low to high. The inclined conveyor can be used for displacement at different heights on the same platform, or at different floors.

What is an incline belt conveyor?

The inclined conveyor is composed of two short rollers and a tight sleeve on the conveyor belt. The inclined conveyor connects the conveying systems of different heights at a certain angle, which is more convenient for conveying goods. This conveyor can not only realize two-way transportation, from low to high or from high to low, but also can be configured with different inclinations and speeds as required.

The angle of the inclined conveyor is also critical. Steep slopes can cause the product to slip or roll. If the inclination exceeds 30 degrees, the following problems may occur:

  • At 45 degrees, the box may slide back to the conveyor belt
  • At 45 degrees, the driving capacity may be exceeded
  • At 45 degrees, the box may roll

When the inclined belt conveyor is applied to the automatic conveying system, it will help to transport between different levels of the conveying system and improve the production efficiency. It takes up less space, which can maximize the utilization of space.

How does an incline conveyor work?

Inclined belt conveyor realizes automatic program between two or more points to transfer materials of different heights, from low to high or from high to low. The main function of the inclined conveyor is to ensure the continuous and uninterrupted flow of goods between two or more areas in the facility and reduce unnecessary travel of operators and manual handling equipment.

The main part of the conveyor is the conveyor belt, which is the main traction and bearing part. A ring is formed by the drive roller and the tail turning roller, and the tensioning device provides the tension for the conveyor belt during operation to avoid slipping when conveying materials.

The idler group provides the support for materials on the conveyor belt, so as to prevent the excessive deflection of the conveyor belt from increasing the pressure of the drive device and causing the failure of the drive roller.

On the conveyor belt, the materials move together with the friction force of the conveyor belt and the conveyor belt. The materials are transported obliquely through the pressure pulley, and discharged at the turning roller.

Benefits of incline conveyors

Due to the angle and automatic mechanism to convey materials, the inclined conveyor can more safely and efficiently complete the transportation between different levels, especially fragile items.

After the automatic mechanism is set up, the inclined conveyor can easily transport heavier materials to the required height without the intervention of workers.

Inclined conveyor has advantages in manufacturing environment or transportation, and is more suitable for transportation environment with multiple levels, moving materials from one level to another.

The inclined conveyor can realize two-way transportation, allowing products to be transported back and forth.

The inclined conveyor can effectively transport heavy materials from one height to another easily and efficiently.

Applications of an incline conveyor

Inclined conveyor is mainly used in warehouse, port, grain, power, light industry and other industries.

How to Maintain the incline conveyor?

Regular cleaning: after the equipment is used, the belt shall be checked, the residues shall be cleaned, and the cleanliness of all parts shall be maintained

Check the lubrication: regularly check the lubrication of equipment components and whether there is wear, and add lubricant in time to ensure that the equipment can maintain normal operation

Employee safety: observe the safety operation manual, keep the equipment clean, do not overload the equipment, and timely detect the existing insecurity factors

When selecting an inclined belt conveyor, it is important to confirm your needs. Understand the conveying demand and design the conveyor suitable for your own conveying route.
