Our slat conveyors are used in situations when the product being moved simply can’t on a belt or roller conveyors whether this is a high-temperature product or in particular heavy product, as a slat conveying system can withstand just about everything. This is why slat conveyors are normally used to waste disposal.
Slat Belt Conveyors
Slat Belt Conveyors are ideal for applications where belt or roller conveyors are not suitable, i.e high-temperature ovens, heavy products or dirty and arduous conditions. Slat Conveyors work on a basic simple design, twin stands of conveyor chain run parallel within guides and around sprockets either end. The drive is mounted on one end and the tension device the opposite end.
Slats made of steel (normally galvanised or stainless), hard wood or plastic are bolted between the chains, effectively making a moving ‘table’ surface. The length of the conveyor and width of the slats is made to suit the product being carried. The slat conveyor can move at a constant speed or index, again dependant on the requirements. Products can be placed directly onto the slat or jigs can be fixed to the slats to assist assembly on production lines. Slat conveyors can be level or inclined to move goods between floors.
