Cleated and Side walled belt conveyors are commonly used to control product on a horizontal or steep incline conveying.
The key attributes for these conveyors are the accuracy of the cleat spacing and durability of the cleat in the application. We have the largest selection of cleats for cleated belt systems, including different heights and cleat angles.
We also have unique sidewall belts that, when combined with cleats, form a product pocket on the belt that prevents product spillage. This endures more consistent and efficient movement for the product. Cleats come in a variety of sizes, shapes and can even be applied on an angle for improved product control.
In today's manufacturing environment, Cleated belt conveyor serves many purposes. They help move product up inclines, as well as stage product to operators or to provide predictable spacing on a line.
In Cleated Belt Conveyors a belt having raised sections is spaced uniformly to stabilize flow of material on belts operating on inclines. Cleats may form part of the belt or fastened on. They are most commonly used to control product on a horizontal or inclined Belt Conveyors. The key attributes that features cleated belt conveyors are the accuracy of the cleat spacing and durability of the cleat in the application.
Cleated belt conveyors are mostly used for ensuring positive part movement, especially on inclined conveyors.
Our Cleated Belt conveyor system is more efficiently designed to handle product more gently and it virtually eliminates vacuum at discharge end.
Our Sidewall Belt Conveyors also feature integral corrugated sidewalls that help keep the product on the belt. Sidewall Belt conveyors are more ideal for conveying a wide range of products, and are well suited for difficult applications as they utilize flexible Corrugated Sidewall that hold the product on the belt and help in maintaining speed consistency allowing for high capacity conveying.
They work in various inclined, horizontal, and combination configurations depending upon the use.Download Pdf
