Tripper conveyors

Tripper conveyors


  • Belt Trippers are short belt conveyors that can be positioned at different points along a main belt conveyor to “trip” or divert the flow of bulk materials off through a chute. Bulk materials discharge off the Belt Tripper to another belt conveyor, to storage or to processing.

Application Area:

  • Used in many industries including aggregate, lime, chemical, mining and power industries for discharging bulk materials to storage or processing.


  • Capacities up to 20,000 cubic feet per hour can easily be handled with EFM Belt Trippers.
  • Can either be in a fixed position or travel continuously at a constant speed for layered stacking.
  • Used to solve many applications where more than one conveyor discharge position is required. Other situations where belt trippers can be an advantage:
    •     If a reversing belt is needed with discharges at both ends
    •     If many bins need to be filled along the conveyor
    •     If a long continuous pile such as filling a bulk storage building is required

Customisation Options:

  • Heavy-Duty Structural Frames and Supports – to provide system rigidity.
  • Heavy-Duty Inlet Skirting – to eliminate spillage at discharge transition.
  • Abrasion Resistant Belting – to reduce wear and increase life.
  • Heavy-duty Idlers with anti-Friction bearings – to increase Idler life and reduce horsepower requirements.
  • High Torque Drive Units – to power through upset conditions.
