Rock Solid Solutions for Heavy-Duty Applications

This month’s 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.

Conveyor Specifications

Model No. 29760-4.5 Chain Driven Live Roller Conveyor
Length: 12’ 0" overall
Rollers: 2-9/16" diameter x 7 gauge, 11/16" hex axle
Effective Width: 66 inches
Support: Full length 6-inch channels
Motor: 1-1/2 HP Baldor Super "E" motor set high, with Dodge Tigear II reducer

Best Value-Added Feature

Running the full length of the conveyor, we mounted a unistrut on each side which allowed for flexibility in the field to easily adjust each photo eye location.

Overall, the conveyor in and of itself wasn’t complex, but integrating it in with other equipment and facility limitations required a bit more forethought. Thanks to our pre-designed/pre-engineered conveyor modules, we supplied a unique solution quickly and affordably to the OEM, our Alba Partner and their client.
