Our waste conveyors are bespoke to your needs so whether you need a wide conveyor to accommodate large quantities of material or thin conveyors to separate items into segments; we have got a full range to offer.
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), hardwood 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.
LowPro Slat Conveyors
LowPro Slat Conveyors are available with a stainless steel or aluminium body to allow for wash down applications. Midland Handling Equipment has come up with designs that allow for use in areas that are very sensitive in terms of hygiene standards. These slat conveyors are designed to use the generic slat chain saving you money and time while cutting down on the energy used by staff and allowing for a more seamless flow of goods around the production line or warehouse. The LowPro Slat can be implemented almost anywhere and with the generic slat chain, it is an inexpensive tool for your company.
The application of slat conveyors will depend on the type of slat conveyor that you purchase from us. Typically, slats conveyors can be used in applications that include zones based on fixtures, non-contact accumulation, dirty, wet and oily loads and with pallet loads with bottoms that cannot be placed on a roller or chain conveyor.
Slat conveyors can be installed in manufacturing plants, government military agencies, automotive lines, appliance production, warehousing and distribution, in furniture and cabinetry production and manufacturing plants. The limitation of the equipment is determined by your ability to get the right slat conveyor for the right job.
Slat Conveyors go a long way and are an economical addition to any company that is looking to cut down on human intervention in the production or storage line. They help to cut down on the time taken to move goods and loads from one end to the other and increase the efficiency of the production line.
