What Hytrol’s Accumulating Conveyor Can Do For You

Many times it is necessary to accumulate a long line of boxes to be fed into a loading, sorting, strapping or palletizing operation. Accumulating conveyors provide the perfect solution for stopping points or wherever a line of boxes needs to be accumulated. Accumulating conveyors help to:

  • Maintain flow control
  • Manage merges & transfers
  • Prevent product damage
  • Queue product
  • Control nonsynchronous operations

Many factors affect the proper operations of accumulating conveyors such as speed, box weight and box size. Zero pressure conveyors may be either mechanically, pneumatically or electronically operated. Electronically operated units have no minimum weight requirement and use no sensing rollers.

Two Types of Accumulating Conveyors

Zero Pressure

  • Accumulates products with no products touching
  • Uses various methods to completely remove all driven pressure in select zones on the conveyor
  • Zones can vary in length according to the product being conveyed

Minimum Pressure

  • Has enough drive to the tread rollers to move the package
  • Amount of back pressure allows a minimum of 2% of the total live load on the conveyor

Estimates are based on a well equipped conveyor: 24″ wide x 50′ long
