Trough Belt Conveyor

Trough Belt Conveyors

Trough belt conveyors are built to contain loose or bulk materials within the center portion of the conveyor system. With rollers built in the trough, integrated guard rails, and a slider bed that conforms to the belt, trough conveyors are an ideal way to move loose materials, cartons, bulk materials or trash without worrying about product loss or spillage. Trough belt conveyors are available in any 1’ incremental size between 5’ and 100’.

Trough belt conveyors can be configured in inclined or horizontal conveyor setups, equipped for variable or constant speed, and outfitted with motors of varying HP. They can also be customized with a wide variety of optional equipment such as taller guard rails; smooth, rough top, or cleated belts; ceiling hangers; floor supports; center, overhead, or end drives; electrical controls; top covers; drip pans; and more.
