Roach Model 796RB, medium duty roller bed belt conveyor, is designed to transport unit loads with lesser horsepower requirements than slider bed belt conveyors. The roller bed belt conveyor will convey heavier loads than slider bed conveyor due to less friction. Each roller helps minimize belt friction, thus providing for greater capacities. Similar to the slider bed conveyor the roller bed also maintains its overall length as the belt tension is increased.
Rubber belt conveyors handle and process bulk materials. Bulk powders, granules, flakes or pellets are supplied and delivered from a variety of different containers. Rubber belt conveyors also convey small items that could fall between rollers, irregular bottom surface materials, and bags that would sag between rollers.
