  • Coatings - PU Coated, PVC Sleeve

Load Capacity 

The load capacity of conveyors is as mentioned below. The column headings of the table are lengths in mm. The row headings are roller diameters. It can be seen that the roller capacities of the rollers are in Kgs.

Sprocket Driven Conveyor Rollers are used when you have to move the objects e.g. carton box with motorized roller conveyors. Fully machined sprockets are welded to the roller pipe and assembled with shaft to form the sprocket driven conveyor roller.

 

Chain and sprocket is the best option for light as well as heavy duty application. There are various options in size available, depending on load application. Traditionally chain and sprocket combination has been proved to be very much reliable as there is no slippage between chain and sprocket. 
The chain driven live roller conveyors makes it easy, to replace and do the maintenance of the conveyor, as compared to other types of the conveyors. There is adequate knowhow available with any layman to use chain and sprocket as we are using the chain and sprocket combination from the ages.

Due to the available gaps between the rollers, some additional applications such as installation of stoppers or installation of any specific washing application is also feasible and practically possible.

 

Components / objects to be moved with conveyor rollers
Carton boxes, plastic crates , totes, metal or plastic drums, carton boxes , jumbo pallets with heavy loads , automobile components are some of the which can be carried on the roller conveyors.

Chain driven live roller conveyors can be used in all industries. Depending on the industry and application demand, material of construction can be used.

Chain driven live roller conveyors or motorized roller conveyors are best suited when you want to move the material at a controlled speed. The smooth finish of the rollers ensures that there is no damage to the objects. Due to bearing, it moves very free optimizing the electric power requirements. 

The rollers come with Coating Options also. 

There are two options available for the coatings. A Polyurethane coating or a PVC Sleeve. The Polyurethane, known as PU Coating comes in minimum thickness of 5mm. PU Coating is a  time consuming process and similar to molding. The PU Coating has got smooth finish. It is used  when you want to avoid the component contact with the metal.

The PVC Sleeve comes in thickness of 2/2.5mm thick. It is inserted on the roller mechanically with pressure. the PVC sleeve has got rough finish. You need to use it, when you want to create pressure between the rollers and components. e.g. HDPE bag. It is not easy to move the bag on plain rollers. As there is slippage between the rollers and bag. The rollers keep on moving and the bag is at its pace. When PVC Sleeve

is used, it moves the bag due to friction.
