Horizontal Belt Conveyors

Find a Dealer

Fast, convenient loading from hopper tanks. Horizontal belt conveyors are engineered for gentle handling of valuable seed and other bulk materials at speeds of up to 5000 cfh. The perfect solution for return from hopper bottom bins.

 

5000 CFH capacity

Runs to 100 ft

400 FPM belt speed

Mounted on stands or suspended from hopper bins

Friction surface belting rides on an expanded metal slider bed and has an "S" wrap drive. The 8" head pulley is a lagged rubber type and 4" tail pulley is steel. Return rollers with ball bearings are on 10' intervals.

12" square transitions make quick tank-to conveyor connections

 

 

Head Section

The center of the first tank must be at least 56" from the conveyor outlet to clear the motor (based on a 12" tank outlet).

Tail Section

The last tank can be placed on the tail section up to 36" from the lead edge.

18" PVC Belting

For maximum efficiency, the bottom of the tank outlets should be level with the outer top edges of the belt or extend to 1/2" below the edges.

 

Conveyors consist of a head, tail and intermediate sections. Determining the length of intermediate conveyor sections is required. The conveyor working length (from the center of the last bin to the conveyor outlet) determines the length of intermediate conveyor required.
