Conveyor reliability begins with the drive unit. The Valmetal conveyors feature an industrial gear box drive system designed to last longer with less maintenance. You can count more years of trouble free operation. The large diameter lagged drive pulley offers slip-free traction. Also available with hydraulic drive system.
Sturdy belt tighteners maintain belt tension. All bearings are regreasable for long, trouble-free operation. Optional steel hopper eliminates spillage and centers granular products on belt. Tough polyester belt with P.V.C. coating maintains flexibility in sub-zero weather for year round performance.
The section pans forming a concave trough design for extra capacity and less spillage when carrying granular products. It takes only minutes to switch from a concave to a flat bed conveyor. No tools are required.
As a bale elevator, the pan sections are laying flat. No waiting, the bales are carried up swiftly. Belt travels at 220 ft/min compared to 85 ft/min on most chain type elevators.
The undercarriage is made of square structural tubing for strength and rigidity. A heavy duty hand winch automatically locks the load in position when the handle is released. Standard lengths : 30' - 60'
