Wire Mesh Belt Conveyors
Product Details: Item No. 144
Capacity: 2,000 lbs. per unit load
Use: For conveying and indexing wrong-way pallets, IBC’s and other heavy items not conveyable on rollers or fabric belts
Material: Stainless, carbon, or galvanized steel construction
Wire mesh conveyors are designed to handle wrong-way bottom boards of pallets, items not conveyable on rollers, and other loads too heavy for a fabric belt. Wire mesh conveyors can be standard or custom made, for 24″ to 84″ wide loads up to 8,000 lbs and driven by fixed or variable speed drives, rated for food grade, or severe duty industrial grade. Some customers use wire mesh to allow hot objects to cool down in transit. Each metal belt has riveted galvanized steel mesh driven by steel sprockets on a common drive shaft. Wire mesh is also built with plastic belts for wash-down and light duty applications.
