Gravity conveyor consists of two types, “wheel” or “roller”. Wheel conveyor is constructed of a series of wheels mounted on a common axle supported in a channel frame. Roller conveyor is constructed of metal tubes with bearings in each end and mounted on an axle supported in a channel frame.
Push lines require manual assistance to move the product along, where the slope is adjusted on pitched lines, allowing the natural force of gravity to move the product along, so that little or no assistance is required.
Atlantic Rack gravity conveyors are available in a wide variety of sizes and materials, including steel for permanent installations and aluminum when portability is a requirement. Multiple standard widths, and lengths available manufactured “to the inch” provide flexibility for almost any situation. Because of their low cost and ease of installation, gravity conveyors are much more economical than other types of conveyor.
