Powered Conveyor Systems vs. Gravity Systems.
There are several types of Powered Conveyor Systems. Any conveyor that is powered by a mechanical device that moves materials or products along a conveyor line, other than by gravity or by manually pushing the payload, is a powered conveyor. Power Conveyors are typically roller conveyors (and are also referred as “live roller conveyors”) that use motor powered rollers to move the payload. The conveyor rollers are powered by belts, chains, or O-rings depending on the load.
Gravity Systems move payloads without the utilization of power motors to automate the movement along the conveyor line. These are usually used on an incline, assisted by gravity, or by a person manually moving the payload along a level skatewheel or roller conveyor. So you will typically see gravity conveyors utilizing skatewheels and/or rollers.
Examples of Gravity Conveyors are:
- Gravity Conveyors are limited to roller and skatewheel type conveyors and are ideal for warehouses, production lines, loading and unloading truck cargo, etc. We also carry a large selection of incline conveyors, decline conveyors, and gravity conveyor.
