This application entails moving multiple 4,000 lbs. metal bins containing solid waste between floors within a recycling facility.
Alba was asked to supply a major OEM of Vertical Lifts with worldwide exposure, a heavy-duty pallet conveyor for transporting two 5 ft. x 5 ft. x 5 ft. metal bins with a 3-inch wide picture frame bottom. Normally, we’d support the conveyor every five feet. But our Alba Partner explained that there was an obstruction prohibiting this design which required us to provide supports on ten-foot centers.
The ultimate solution – a Chain Driven Live Roller (CDLR) Conveyor with a special support structure. The conveyors were supplied with a full length, six-inch structural channel support on each side of the conveyor to support the required weight.
