At the same time, the horizontal-motion conveyor offers a clean design and higher level of mechanical simplicity. The result is a durable conveying system that requires less maintenance. In addition, the conveyor has no chains, screws, sprockets, rollers, idlers, or other moving parts outside of the guarded drive unit, making it intrinsically safer for operating and maintenance personnel.
The gentle conveying of the horizontal-motion conveyor is also suitable for materials that require handling without compaction or segregation. An unintended consequence of conventional material-conveying systems is product variability, which results from the migration of fine particles in the product stream. The “en masse” conveying provided by horizontal motion ensures that material will be delivered as originally mixed and that fine particles will remain evenly distributed throughout the product bed.
