PALLET HANDLING CONVEYORS

Pallet handling conveyors provide the strength and stability to gently move pallets and other bulk loads. Hytrol’s pallet conveyors use rollers, drag chains, and modular belts to safely move loads while increasing throughput.

Deciding which pallet conveyor to use will greatly depend on the type and direction of the pallet.

Drag Chain Conveyor

Drag chain conveyors are used when the bottom slats of the pallets run perpendicular to the flow and when the pallets are not easily conveyed on roller conveyors. They work well for conveying extremely heavy loads.

Pallet Gravity Conveyor

Gravity pallet conveyors are used in shipping, receiving, and assembly and picking areas. They are a cost-effective solution for moving pallets because they do not use any power and are easy to install. The conveyors also help reduce forklift traffic by moving pallets between work zones.

24 V motor conveyors

Hytrol’s e24 motors can be combined with a reducer to produce enough torque to be considered a light-duty pallet conveyor motor. These chain roller conveyors can transport heavier products when the benefits of a 24 V motor is needed – quiet operations, energy efficient, no air requirements, and variable speed adjustments.

Modular (plastic) belt conveyors

Modular or plastic belt conveyors are used in pallet handling when items are non-conveyable on a roller conveyor such as footed pallets, slip sheets, and unitized loads. The conveyors are also well suited for temperatures from -4 to 140 F and work well in damp or wet environments.
