Light Duty Belt Driven Live Roller Curve Spur Conveyor, Roach Model 138LRCS

Light Duty Belt Driven Live Roller Curve Spur Roach Model 138LRCS can be used for product diversions or converging, to spur conveyor lines or for merging loads of cartons, totes, fixtures, and cardboard boxes.

TYPE: Belt Driven Live Roller Conveyors


Curved belt driven live roller conveyor used for diverting to spur lines; best used with light duty applications.

A belt driven live roller conveyor or BDLR is a gravity roller conveyor powered by a belt. The friction created by the belt drive produces a low pressure method of accumulating product, which in turn allows for loads to be stopped or stalled on the conveyor surface while the belt continues to run.


  • Gravity Roller spurs transfer products from one conveying line to another
  • They are ideally used where numerous lines must transfer onto a main conveyor line, from work stations or other similar operations
  • Ideal for light duty applications


  • Used in diverging or converging applications
  • Merging loads of cartons, totes, fixtures and cardboard boxes
