Create Space Between Your Product With Accumulation Conveyor

Accumulation conveyors are a type of material handling conveyor used to temporarily store and accumulate items or products at various points along a production or distribution line. Unlike standard conveyors, which move items continuously, accumulation conveyors allow for the controlled accumulation of products until they are ready for further processing or packaging.

Applications

Hytrol Zero-Pressure Conveyor

Accumulation conveyors that create space between products. Zero-pressure accumulation conveyors do not allow products to touch each other while conveying, thus reducing damage to fragile items during accumulation. These conveyors are used to hold products when needed, accumulating in zones while products are moved down the line. Hytrol conveyors utilize EZLogic® technology to stop and start products in these accumulation zones.

Benefits

  • Energy efficient
  • Cost effective
  • Conveys products with various sizes and weights
  • Heavy-duty and pallet models available
  • Reduced noise

Uses

  • Distribution Centers
  • Parcel service providers
  • Queue products for sorting

Hytrol Minimum-Pressure Conveyor

Minimum-pressure accumulation conveyors allow manual adjustment of the drive pressure on the tread rollers, causing the products to lightly touch while being conveyed. They can be adjusted to bring the back pressure to 2% of the live load.

Benefits

  • Energy efficient
  • Cost effective
  • Conveys products with various sizes and weights
  • Heavy-duty and pallet models available
  • Reduced noise

Uses

  • Distribution Centers
  • Parcel service providers
  • Queue products for sorting

Hytrol 24-Volt Conveyor

Powered conveyors using 24-volt technology. Hytrol’s 24-volt accumulation conveyor utilizes a decentralized drive system consisting of a pancake motor located in each accumulation zone. Each motor has ability to run at a selected speed, bringing ultimate versatility to this conveyor type.

Benefits

  • Compact design
  • Quiet operation
  • Variable speed adjustments
  • No air requirements
  • Integrates with EZLogic®
  • Energy efficient

Uses

  • Zero-pressure accumulation
  • Accumulating curves and spurs
  • Reversing applications
  • Manufacturing, warehousing, picking, food & beverage
