Industrial conveyor are suitable for material transportation and storage in many industries. Its use brings great advantages to factories, such as improving productivity, reducing labor risks, saving money, etc.

As the source manufacturer of material conveying equipment, the following is a guide for the selection of industrial conveyors.

What are the types of industrial conveyors?

The industrial conveyor can modify and customize the standardized parameters according to its own output requirements. The variability of the conveyor will meet more industry needs.

Three common industrial conveyor types are mainly introduced here: inclined conveyor, belt conveyor and screw conveyor

Incline conveyor

The incline belt conveyor is mainly used for the large inclination continuous transportation of bulk materials. It adopts the conveyor belt with wavy edges and transverse diaphragms, and the conveying inclination is 0~90 degrees. The inclined conveyor is mainly composed of unloading part, transmission part, driving part, brake, backstop, idler, etc.


  • The incline conveyor can convey a wide range of materials, which can convey various bulk materials, as well as various cartons, packaging bags and other single goods.
  • The incline belt conveyor can choose non-slip PVK, PVC, cold-resistant materials and other materials to meet various working conditions and environment.
  • Incline conveyor can be used for continuous conveying when there is a difference in height.
  • The incline belt conveyor has a simple structure and is easy to consumes less energy and has a low cost of use.
  • The goods can be conveyed in both directions.
  • Incline conveyor can be combined with roller conveyors, belt conveyors, turning machines, hoists, assembly lines, etc. to form a complete automated conveying system.
  • Compared with other conveyors, the noise is lower, and it is suitable for the occasions where the working environment requires relatively quiet.
  • The length, width, height and tilt angle range of the belt conveyor can be selected according to customer needs.

Screw conveyor

Screw conveyor is a kind of machine that uses the motor to drive the screw to rotate and push the material to achieve the purpose of conveying. Screw conveyor can be divided into two types: axial screw conveyor and shaftless screw conveyor. In appearance, it can be divided into U-shaped screw conveyor and tubular screw conveyor. The shaft screw conveyor is suitable for dry powder materials and small particle materials without viscosity, while the shaft screw conveyor is suitable for materials with viscosity and easy winding.

Through the gravity of the material and the friction between the material and the tank wall, the screw conveyor can only move forward along the bottom of the conveyor under the push of the blades.


  • Suitable for short-distance and small-yield material transportation, and suitable for working conditions such as limited installation space or requiring precise control of output;
  • The structure is relatively simple, the work is reliable, and the cost is low.
  • Compact size, small section size, and small floor space. It is easy to get in and out of hatches and carriages during unloading operations.
  • Sealed transportation can be realized, which is conducive to the transportation of flying, hot and strong-smelling materials, which can reduce environmental pollution and improve workers’ working conditions.
  • Convenient loading and unloading: the horizontal screw conveyor can be loaded and unloaded at any point on the conveying line.
  • The vertical screw conveyor system can be equipped with a relatively screw-type reclaiming device to have excellent reclaiming performance.
  • Modular design, safe and convenient to replace accessories.

Belt conveyor

Belt conveyor systems is widely used in metallurgy, coal, transportation, hydropower, chemical and other departments because it has the advantages of large conveying capacity, long conveying distance, simple structure, convenient maintenance, low cost and strong universality.


  • The characteristics of belt conveyor systems, low cost, low maintenance cost and large conveying capacity.
  • The belt conveyor systems  has low power consumption. Because the material and the conveyor belt have almost no relative movement, and the wear and breakage of the cargo are small, the productivity is high, which is beneficial to reduce the production cost.
  • According to the requirements of the technological process, the belt conveyor systems can flexibly receive materials from one or more points, and can also discharge materials to multiple points or several sections. When feeding materials to the conveyor belt at several points at the same time (such as the conveyor under the coal bunker of a coal preparation plant) or feeding materials to the conveyor belt through uniform feeding equipment at any point along the length of the belt conveyor, the belt conveyor  becomes a main conveying trunk line.
  • Modular design, safe and convenient to replace accessories.
  • According to the requirements of the conveying process, it can be conveyed by a single machine, or multiple units can be combined into a horizontal or inclined conveying system to convey materials.
  • The belt conveyor systems has strong adaptability, and the length of the line is determined according to needs, ranging from a few meters in length to more than 10km in length. It can be installed in a small tunnel, or it can be erected over the ground in chaotic and dangerous areas.

Industrial conveyor system manufacturers can provide a variety of products. When selecting manufacturers, consider the following factors: quality, product flexibility, after-sales, etc.

It is necessary to choose a conveyor suitable for your factory, which can help improve the productivity of the factory.
