90-Degree 3-Strand Skate Wheel Transfer Conveyor for easy product movement
The 90° 3-Strand Skate Wheel Transfer Roach Model WT3 is great for transferring cartons, cases, tote boxes, or products with flat bottoms. Skate Wheel transfer conveyors offer easy movement of product. Made with steel skate wheels mounted on axles to convey product, this is the most economical type of conveyor. Skate wheel transfer conveyors are good for items with a smooth, flat bottom. Unlike a power conveyor, the load can be wider than your conveyor if centered correctly. Skate wheel conveyors flow better than roller conveyors. A minimum of ten wheels should be positioned beneath your load at any given time.
The Roach Model WT3 is shown mounted in an optional conveyor. It requires less pitch to convey the product. Lightweight loads and empty cartons move easily on the skate wheel conveyor. As the load negotiates the transfer, the skate wheels provide this differential action. Less energy is needed to turn the wheels and that makes skate wheel good at maintaining speed.
