Medium Duty Tapered Roller Chain Driven Live Roller Curve Conveyor, Roach Model 254TCDLRC

The Roach Model 254TCDLRC is a medium duty, tapered roller, chain driven live roller curve, designed to transport medium duty loads such as castings, containers, drums or pallet loads.

TYPE: Chain Driven Live Roller CDLR Conveyors

MODEL: Roach Model 254TCDLRC

Medium duty, curved, tapered, roller chain driven live roller (CDLR) conveyor designed to transport medium duty loads such as castings, containers, drums or pallet loads.

Chain driven live roller conveyors, or pallet conveyors, are typically used to transport heavier loads at controlled speeds. Chains drive the sprockets on the load rollers, which in turn drives the chain and the sprocket on the next roller. These systems transmit the same amount of power to each roller thus ensuring smooth, even transportation.


  • Used to transport heavier loads at controlled speeds
  • Well suited to dirty and oily environments where other roller conveyors cannot compete
  • Large diameter tapered rollers allow the pallets to maintain their proper orientation while traveling through the curve
  • Achieves true zero pressure accumulation
  • Handles dense accumulation
  • Handles light to extra heavy duty materials
  • Quiet operation
  • Versatile design and configurations
  • Easy installation and maintenance
  • Reversible


  • Used in warehouse operations that handle steel sheet or structural shapes as well as pallets or skids
  • Transports heavy loads such as tires, tote pans, castings, drums, & pallet loads
  • Handles overweight or oversized loads that do not require orientation and have smooth bottoms or are being transported on pallets
