Skewed Wheel Diverter Conveyor with 30°, 45°, and 90° Diversion Angles
A Skewed Wheel Diverter Roach Model SD60 can take a package and divert it from one line to another. Both the skewed wheel diverter and the roller diverter can be used as a means of diverting from the narrow belt sorter. Skewed wheel diverters consist of a high-speed belt transportation conveyor with two rows of skewed wheels built into the belt unit at each divert point. When a carton reaches the divert destination, wheels raise above the conveying surface of the belt and steer the product off the sort line.
Skewed wheel diverter conveyor has 30°, 45°, and 90° diversion angles. Skewed wheels are normally driven by elastomer bands and run at a speed slightly faster than the sorter to provide additional driving force when diverting. The pop-up skewed wheel sorter is a reliable method of high speed diverting.
