Floor-to-Floor Inclined Belt Conveyor, Roach Model 796RBF

Roach Model 796RBF Roller Bed Inclined Floor-To-Floor Belt Conveyor

TYPE: Rubber Belt Conveyors


The Model 796RBF Inclined Floor-To-Floor Roller Bed Belt Conveyor is designed to provide floor-to-floor transition when conveying unit and case loads. It uses less horsepower than a slider bed belt conveyor.


  • Designed to provide floor-to-floor transition when conveying unit and caseloads
  • uses less horsepower than a slider bed belt conveyor
  • Incline conveyor provides higher load capacity
  • The reversible flow and nose-over allow for simple adjustments for inclines 0-35°
  • The roller bed belt conveyor will convey heavier loads than a slider bed conveyor due to less friction. Each roller helps minimize belt friction, providing for greater capacities
  • Similar to the slider bed belt conveyor, a roller bed also maintains its overall length as the belt tension is increased


  • Belt conveyors are ideal for transporting small item materials that may drop between rollers
  • Material packaged in bags that could get caught up between rollers or wheel systems
  • Horizontal belt conveyor systems are used by industries both large and small for efficient transportation of goods from one area to another
  • The smooth, continuous surface of a conveyor belt is ideal for many product handling applications from farming and food to mining

Benefits of Belt Conveyor Systems
