Line Shaft Driven Diverging Switch Module Conveyor for Diverging Applications
The Roach Model 796LSDS Line Shaft Diverging Switch Module is used in diverging applications where line shaft conveyors are suitable. Line shaft Conveyors are an optimum solution for conveyance of light loads, at speeds of 25-120 FPM. They are designed for flat-bottomed, evenly distributed loads, such as those found in distribution, warehousing, food packaging and parcel handling. Clean, dry, oil free environments are ideal conditions to maximize line shaft roller performance. The Roach Model 796LSDS’s pivot section of rollers, pneumatically actuated, skews to divert packages onto spurs quickly and efficiently. A diverter or diverter assembly is provided for engaging objects moving along the main conveyor and diverting the objects from the main conveyor. The diverter assembly is particularly well adapted for diverting objects at a right angle to a path of conveyance of the main conveyor; however, it may be adapted for other applications.
