Used pallet conveyor manufacturers include Buschman, Mathews, Rapistan, and Speedway. American Surplus stocks these brands along with Hytrol, Ermanco, ACSI, and Interlake. Design and installation of used pallet conveyor, by trained professionals, is available nationwide.
The advantage of having a chain instead of a belt is that chain driven conveyors can transport both hot and cold product without damaging the system. Because of its all-metal design, this style of conveyor also better resists grease and other buildup that may cause damage to belted systems. The chain driven rollers can also withstand uneven pallet bottoms, and they can typically hold more than 1,000 lbs. depending on the size and brand.
Why buy used? This is a common question that we hear a lot at ASI. Buying used saves money, but will it compromise the equipment’s lifetime and overall quality? Usually it does when you are considering items like a car or a house. A used car might not run as well as a new one, and a new house’s roof and siding will last longer than an older house. But fortunately, with used warehouse equipment, the same logic does not apply. This is industrial grade heavy duty equipment, built to last virtually forever. Parts may get worn or scratched, but the overall system will function properly for years to come. All of our used conveyor is also backed with a 30 day ASI guarantee, ensuring that if anything does not work properly, you can send it back and we will replace the part with another pre-owned part for free.
