Incline Conveyors, like any other conveyor, serves the purpose of the movement of material. They are used as independent units to move material from one level to another, provided used with gravity conveyor, for continuous flow of material from one floor to another. They are designed for permanent installation by using pre-designed sections.
The material can be moved forward as well as backward, in both directions. The reverse direction requires the help of the center drive. Incline Conveyors requires support at the top and bottom. The maximum recommended incline is 25º. As they are inclined, rough Top belt is used at the top.
In Incline Conveyor, the standard sections are combined to make any length required. They are normally equipped with NOSE OVER at the upper end, which enables the conveyed product to level off to horizontal position before being discharged. This is highly desirable for cartons carrying breakables. The nose over eliminates a dropping action by the front of the carton when it reaches the top. Generally, the carton should not exceed the overall width of the conveyor, but if it is wider it should have a flat bottom.
