MODEL: Series CTR Conveyor

Channel Framed Troughing Bulk Handling Conveyor

The Rapat Series CTR is an industrial-duty channel frame conveyor with CEMA troughing idlers designed to handle the toughest applications.


  • Troughing Roller System is designed to reduce friction and belt the belt into a "U" formation, allowing for higher capacities adn lower maintenance
  • Structural channel frame is open for easy access to the idlers for simple maintenance and inspection
  • Ideal for applications where an enclosure is not required or will not fit
  • Open conveyors allow for easy inspection of product loading areas and belt tracking
  • Built and shipped in bolt-together sections for easy assembly and installation
  • Uses only common CEMA standard components which allows the customer easy access to replacement parts
  • Adjustable Take-Up; Convenient belt adjustments are made with all components externally mounted
  • Computer Engineered Design: installs faster, lasts longer, and is easier to maintain
  • Heavy Duty Bearings: externally mounted providing easier maintenance without disassembly
  • Motor and Drive have a standard shaft mounted reducer. Options include right angle, inline and gear motor drives
  • Formed Steel Skirting Guides directs product onto the conveyor and prevents product from flowing around the belt
  • Industrial grade motors and drives
  • Heavy duty Belting
  • Protected screw take ups

Customizable Build

  • Zero speed switch to alert if a specific pulley has stopped turning.
  • Plug switch mounted in discharge to shut off conveyor if discharge chute plugs.
  • Belt alignment switches to shut off conveyor or alerts an operator should the belt become misaligned.
  • Emergency shutoff switch can be activated anywhere along the length of conveyor for safer operation.
  • Dust collection ports located along conveyor to allow a dust collector to be tied into the conveyor for dust removal.
  • Belt cleaning systems. Belt brushes, wipers and plows are available to help clean the belt and reduce product carryback with sticky or damp products.
  • Frame construction is available in mild steel with enamel or epoxy finish, galvanized or stainless steel.
  • Belting options include standard rubber or PVC belts with white food grade, high temp or oil & chemical resistance also available. Mechanical belt splices are standard. Vulcanized belt splices are optional.
  • Metal detectors, belt scales and various magnets are available and can be adapted to fit the CTR frame.
  • Skirting is available as needed to help keep the product contained on the center of the belt through multiple inlets.
  • Slight bend sections from horizontal to slight inclines are available where necessary and practical


  • Bulk material handling is an engineering field that is centered on the design of equipment used for the handling of dry materials such as ores, coal, cereals, wood chips, sand, gravel, and stone in loose bulk form
  • The cement industry involves sand, cement, clinker, clay, limestone, and many admixtures. The agricultural industry involves grains, cereals, beans, kernels, etc.
  • Designed for continuous operation, a belt conveyor can be used in a wide range of capacities and distances, and its length can be a few meters or tens of kilometers.  
  • The Rapat Series CTR has common options which include walkways, service platforms, support bent, and transfer towers.


  • Beam Frame: a structural w-beam frame conveyor, designed to span between support locations and meet loading site requirements.
  • Box Truss Frame: A welded structural steel, boxed shaped frame conveyor, designed to span between the support locations and meet site loading requirements.
  • Gallery Truss:  A square, welded structural steel frame that a belt conveyor and any optional walkway can sit within.  Also designed to span between ground support locations, meet loading requirements.  Can be enclosed with sheeting or left open.
  • Transfer Towers:  Structural steel support towers where one conveyor transitions and feeds into another.  Custom designed for each application, can include stairways, handrails and platforms.
  • Support Bents: A structural steel frame designed and fabricated to support a conveyor at an elevation and meet the site specific loading requirements.
  • Walkways: Platforms with safety handrails that is supported off the side of a conveyor providing maintance access. Can be used on one or both sides of a conveyor.
  • Service Platfoms: A platform for safely accessing and maintaining key areas of a conveyor.
  • Traveling tripper: A tripper discharge that travels on a rail system along a conveyor's length and allows product to be discharged at any point along the conveyor.  Commonly used to fill flat bottom storage buildings.
  • Fixed Tripper:  A devlce that allows material to be discharged prior to the end of the conveyor.
  • Shuttle: A reversing belt conveyor that is mounted on a rail system where the entire conveyor shuttles back and forth allowign for continuous discharge points. Commonly used to fill flat bottomed storage buildings.
  • Belt Feeder: A short, flat, variable speed belt conveyor used to transfer or "feed" maerial from one location to another.
  • Top Covers: A common option which helps to protect product and conveyor belting from the elements; also protects employees and ensures safe operation.  Offered in a galvanized, corrugated version. Both are available in stainless steel.
  • Discharge Hood: Hood covers the head pulley where the material is transitioned out of the conveyor. They are flanged to connect to other equipment or chute work and are available with a variety of wear liner options.
  • Gravity Take Up:  Device that automatically adjusts using a counterweighted pulley to maintain proper tension on the belt.  Generally used on longer conveyors where mechanical take-ups are not practical.
  • Chutes/Transitions:  Customized chutes and transitions are designed to move product to and from conveyors and other process equipment. Available with a variety of wear liner options depending on the materials being conveyed.
  • Impact Beds:  A series of cushioned bars used to absorb loading forces under a conveyor belt in the loading zone. They vary depending on the material being conveyed and the distance of the product being dropped onto the belt.
  • Skirting: Replaceable rubber seals that contact the conveyor belt to contain product through the loading area. Adjustable adn can be lined with a variety of wear liners.
  • Mine Duty & Engineered Class Pulleys:  Mine duty pulleys are  heavier duty than standard pulleys for harsh environments.
  • Belt Cleaners: A device that uses a tensioned blade mounted on a supporting structure to remove material that clings to the belt beyond the normal discharge point. Often mounted inside the discharge hood so product cleaned off the belt falls into the discharge.
  • Washbox: A device that uses pressurized wter and a series of belt cleaners to clean especially tacky materials from a belt
  • Belt Scale: A device that weighs or measures the amount of product moved on a belt conveyor.
  • Belt Magnet:  A device for removing ferrous materials form the product as it moves on a belt conveyor in order to prevent damage to downstream equipment.
  • Water Deluge Lines: Pressurized water lines with diffusers that can be attached to a conveyor to flood the product with water in order to suppress dust and extinguish potentiall fires.
