Eriez Magnetics: Conveyor for fragile products
Horizontal Motion Conveyor moves fragile products at rates to 40’/min with a gentle sliding motion using either a 1.5 or 3HP variable speed drive. The new HMC-22 and HMC-50 models use a counter weight drive system so that the product remains stationary as it is carried forward, then instantly slides along the tray surface as the drive quickly reverses its action.
Models come standard with stainless steel trays from 12’’ to 24’’ wide and 5’ to 30’ long that can be suspended overhead or floor mounted on pedestals. The single variable-speed drive can be located at either end or under the tray to accommodate limited space requirements.
