Shuttle Conveyors

Shuttle Conveyors

Overview:

  • A shuttle conveyor is, in short, a belt conveyor that is mounted on to a rail system. The conveyor can move along the rails in either direction and the belt can be switched for either direction, making this style conveyor great for evenly filling multiple hoppers or storage bins. The conveyor is typically half the length of the rails, giving it plenty of room for several discharge locations.

Salient Features:

  • Reversible Belt Direction: There is no restriction to which end of the conveyor, the material can discharge from. Can discharge continuously over a long distance.
  • Stationary Inlet: A stationary material feed chute allows for processed material to be directed to one central location. This reduces or eliminates the need for complex chute systems or diverters to get the product to the desired locations.
  • Remote/Automation: Reversing shuttle conveyors can either be controlled from a remote location, such as a control room, by trained personnel, or automatically through an automated program. This greatly reduces the labour cost of sorting and storing materials.
