Centering Belts and Reject Paddle Featured in Process Line

- Monday, May 05, 2014

Overhead Rake Pusher Device Over Intralox Belt Conveyor 300X263

The manufacture of insulation rolls and batts is among the many diversified industries using LEWCO equipment.  Recent units built for a customer serving this industry included conveyors for three process lines.  Among the custom individual units were modular plastic belt conveyors, product reject paddles, and powered centering belts.  A portion of one process line is shown at right.

Each product reject paddle was mounted overhead, and was designed to sweep 40 lb. products off the side of the main process line at a rate of up to 20 per minute.  Special guide bearings were used to counter thrust loads and ensure long life.  Additional area guarding was added by the end user during installation.

The powered centering belts were designed to eliminate the product drag and potential rotation that would occur on a static face guide rail.  They ran at the same speed as the process line to gently center the product.  The centering belts were mounted on pivots at the infeed end, allowing the exit opening to be manually adjustable to accommodate various product types.
