Minimum Pressure Accumulation Conveyors
The Hytrol Minimum Pressure Accumulation Conveyor is the simplest solution for automated products accumulation and accumulating cartons, boxes, case, etc. The Minimum Pressure Accumulation Conveyors are often used to move and accumulate boxes or cartons so they are efficiently queued and feed a sorting, wrapping, strapping, palletizing, or other process.
Accumulation Zones provide products accumulation in a buffer zone. This allows a steady flow of products to be distributed evenly, or held back, when the conveyor line isn’t ready for additional product. This smooths the flow of products when there is line congestion, product backups, stoppages, etc.
An automated minimum pressure accumulation conveyor allows products to lightly touch as they are being conveyed. The conveyor stops the package, but the contact pressure is kept to a minimum to eliminate package damage. The amount of contact, or back pressure, is adjustable and is typically about 2% of the total live load.

Hytrol Zero Pressure Accumulation Conveyors (EZLogic®)
The EZLogic® models are horizontal live roller conveyors designed for Zero Pressure Accumulation of products. Positive braking in each zone reduces the possibility of damage to fragile items during accumulation, without a build-up of line pressure. Singulation feature allows products to be removed from any location along the conveyor.
The EZLogic® system provides all the automated “intelligence” needed to accurately and efficiently control the various functions on a variety of our automated Zero Pressure Accumulation Conveyors.
Some of the advantages of the EZLogic® system:
- Reduced noise,
- Higher reliability,
- Higher throughputs,
- Ease of maintenance.
