If your company needs a conveyor that can handle bulk materials that weigh several tons, you might want to consider adding a trough belt conveyor. Allstate Conveyor can help to design and build a trough bed conveyor for your company.
What Is a Trough Bed Conveyor?
A trough bed conveyor has a belt that forms into a trough and that runs over sets of idler rollers.
These conveyors are designed to handle heavy bulk products. There are pulleys located at each end that the belt feeds through to allow the continuous transportation of bulk materials. Trough bed conveyors may have other features added such as in-feed hoppers, and others, depending on how they will be used.
Advantages of Trough Bed Conveyors
Trough bed conveyors are ideal for companies that need to move bulk products that have substantial weight. They can handle transporting tons of materials from one area to another.
These conveyors also do not require substantial maintenance. Their construction is very sturdy, allowing for fast and easy conveying of bulk products. They are also able to handle heavy loads and are rust-proof.
