Conveyor Systems

East Coast Storage Equipment has a wide variety of new and used conveyor systems for sale, including:

  • New and used gravity conveyor
  • New and used powered conveyor

Gravity Conveyors

Gravity conveyors are non-powered and rely on gravity for moving product. They are portable and easy to set up and take down.

Gravity roller conveyors move heavier items that have firm flat bottoms such as cartons, totes, skids, firm bags, etc. Gravity rollers may also be used with rack storage for moving pallets or cartons.

Gravity skate wheel conveyors roll more easily than gravity rollers, which allows for lighter packages and less slope. In addition, packages tend to track better with skate wheels than with gravity rollers, especially in curve sections.

Powered Conveyors

There are several types of powered conveyors, including belt driven conveyor systems, chain driven conveyor systems and extendable flex conveyors.

There are two main types of belt driven conveyor systems: slider bed and roller bed.

Slider bed conveyors are belt driven. They transport light to medium loads in assembly, sorting, testing and packaging applications. A trash belt conveyor is the same as a slider bed conveyor except that it has guard rails to prevent materials from falling off the conveyor belt into the work area.

Roller bed conveyors, or accumulating conveyors, are also belt driven. They move heavier loads and can handle higher capacities. They are useful for transporting packages, cartons and totes.

Chain-driven live roller conveyors can handle even heavier loads, such as pallets, drums, castings, and tote pans. It can be used in wet, oily, or contaminated applications because of its rugged construction.

Extendable flex conveyors can be either gravity or powered. They are typically used at the end of a conveyor line for loading product. They are flexible and can be lengthened, shortened, moved or reshaped to match your application. Extendable flex conveyors can be used as stand-alone units or in combination with other gravity or powered conveyors in manufacturing, assembly, retail, distribution and processing facilities.
