About Power Conveyors

Power conveyors have a number of applications including boxes, totes, and cartons, non-contact accumulation, zone based, convey long distance quickly, incline/decline.

Where it works: warehouse and distribution, manufacturing, order fulfillment, aerospace, automotive, parcel handling, and food and beverage industries.

Used power conveyor manufacturers include Buschman, Mathews, Rapistan, and Speedway. American Surplus stocks these brands along with Hytrol, Ermanco, ACSI, Bestflex, Nestaflex and Interlake. Design and installation of used power conveyor by our trained professionals is available nationwide.

Power conveyors may also be referred to as motorized roller conveyors, power conveyor rollers, and heavy duty power roller conveyor.

Used power conveyor needs to be properly maintained to ensure that it is working as it did when it was new. Some of the regular maintenance duties and safety procedures that need to take place include lubrication, not exceeding capacity, educating your staff, and more.

Do Not Exceed Capacity: Power conveyors are built in two capacities: structural and live load. It is important to never exceed the maximum capacity for which the conveyor is rated. Variation in product weight can make it somewhat tricky to determine what can be transported on the conveyor, but ASI can help you determine which capacity is right for your specific material handling application.

Educate Employees: Make sure that all employees operating conveyor equipment are wearing proper applicable safety gear. It is important to read all conveyor warning labels and to be aware of your surroundings when operating heavy machinery like this. Used power conveyors typically do not have all of the original warning labels, or they may be hard to read, so sometimes looking up safety procedures is required.

Keep Spare Parts on Hand: This is not crucial, as parts can be purchased if something breaks down, but having the parts on hand saves time. If a used conveyor system is not working properly, it can be extremely costly to that company, causing everything to grind to a halt, so having these parts on hand ensures your system is up and running as quickly as possible. It can take lengthy amounts of lead time to get specific power conveyor parts shipped to your facility.

As you can see, proper upkeep of your used power conveyor system is crucial in keeping it operating properly for as long as possible. All of these actions will ensure you get the maximum amount of use out of your used power conveyor. Give us a call; members of our sales team have been selling used power conveyor systems for many years, and will assist you in every step of the design and implementation process.

Advantages of Power Conveyors

  • Increased safety: Power conveyors can be equipped with safety features such as emergency stop buttons, guarding, and interlocks, which help prevent accidents and injuries in the workplace.
  • Flexibility: Power conveyors can be designed to fit the specific needs of your operation, including size, shape, and capacity.
  • Improved accuracy: Power conveyors can be designed to move materials with greater precision and accuracy, reducing errors and improving product quality.
