About Gravity Roller Conveyors

Gravity roller conveyors use the power of gravity, instead of motorized drive components, to move products over a series of connected rollers. These gravity conveyor systems are one of the simplest, most cost-effective and versatile methods of moving goods across a warehouse or distribution center.

Used Gravity Roller Conveyors

A gravity roller conveyor system consists of a series of parallel rollers mounted on side frames and set at a slight decline. This decline is essential as it provides the momentum needed to move products under their own weight. Users can adjust the level of incline or decline to better control the speed of movement.

The gravity conveyor rollers themselves spin freely, as opposed to being attached to a motor drive like a powered conveyor. This allows boxes, totes and other types of products to glide smoothly down the gravity conveyor with little to no friction. The size and weight capacity of the rollers will depend on the exact needs of your operation — ranging from light-duty rollers for smaller boxes to heavy-duty rollers for moving bigger palletized inventory.

Gravity Roller Conveyor Benefits

Cost-Effective

One of the benefits of gravity conveyors is they are more cost-effective. Since gravity roller conveyors use only the natural force of gravity instead of electricity, you can expect some significant energy savings.

Low Maintenance

With no motor or additional moving parts, these gravity-powered conveyors need less maintenance — resulting in reduced downtime and lower maintenance costs.

Easy Installation

Most gravity conveyor systems are easy to install. One unique factor you should keep in mind is the proper decline angle.

A Scalable Solution

As your business grows, your conveyor needs will often grow too. With gravity conveyor rollers, you can easily add extra sections to meet your evolving needs.

Simple Operation

Workers won’t need to manage the operation of a gravity roller conveyor as much as with a powered conveyor system — freeing up their focus for more critical warehouse tasks.

Gravity Roller Conveyor Applications

Since gravity roller conveyors are one of the most cost-effective conveyor solutions available, many different industrial and distribution center operations use them for many various applications. This includes:

  • Warehousing
  • Packaging and Assembly Lines
  • Order Picking and Fulfillment
  • Loading and Unloading
  • Parcel Handling

Other Types of Conveyor Systems

While gravity roller conveyors are a versatile equipment choice, they’re not the only conveyor option available for your business. Here are a few other conveyor systems to consider.

Other Gravity Conveyor Systems

Roller-type gravity conveyors are just one type of gravity-based system. You’ll also find skate wheel-type gravity conveyors that use a system of metal skate wheels to move products from A to B.

Used Gravity Flex Conveyors

While a permanent conveyor system can be perfect for operations that need easy access daily, not every warehouse or distribution center will need this type of equipment. Luckily, you can choose to use a flexible conveyor system that can stow away small when not in use.

Things to Consider Before Purchasing

While gravity roller conveyors are fairly simple in both construction and operation, there are still a few things you should keep in mind that will help you find the right piece of equipment for your warehouse or distribution center.

Used Gravity Roller Conveyors

Diameter of Rollers

Standard diameters of gravity rollers are usually 1.5”, 1.9”, 2.5” or 3.5”. Just note that while larger rollers can handle more weight, they tend to be more expensive.

Frame Type

Frames are generally made from powder-coated steel, but you’ll find a few other options available. For instance, aluminum frames and rollers are available from some brands.

Conveyor Section Length

If you’re building out a larger conveyor run, you’ll need to understand the length of each conveyor section. Most manufacturers offer 5’, 8’, or 10’ sections for roller conveyors. Longer sections, 10’+, often require a center support or leg stand.

Conveyor Width

When it comes to conveyor width, this measurement represents the distance between the two conveyor frames. Just keep in mind some rollers don’t sit flush with the frames, making managing extended loads difficult. Consider side guides to hold the load if needed.
