Quick Return Conveyors

Better Technology – Reliable Conveying

The QR Conveyor is the best horizontal conveying method for stamping, machining, chip processing and other metalforming types of scrap because there is no carryover. This type of scrap conveyor virtually eliminates stoppages from jams and quickly moves material away from the point of production. Highlights include a smooth continuous motion coupled with the technology of the sensor-based drive, which provide a quiet, 24/7 operation.

Unlike other scrap conveyor methods, the PRAB QR Conveyor is one of the best conveying options for your scrap handling systems needs because of its durable and reliable operation and low cost of ownership.

Low Energy Consumption – Compared to steel belt and other conveying methods, the QR has less moving parts. It also uses a steel pan instead of a steel belt. (Steel belts can contribute to unnecessary energy consumption depending on the length, weight and pull required of the belt).

Low Maintenance – Few moving parts mean minimal wear points. No drive lubrication or adjustments are needed during operation.

Quick Return Conveyor – The smooth steel pan on the QR Conveyor eliminates unexpected downtime due to jammed material and conveys 100% of the scrap introduced. (Steel belt conveyors have points where jagged edges in the scrap can get caught, carried over or jam the conveyor resulting in a maintenance issue).

Ease of Installation – The smooth motion of the QR Conveyor means installation requirements are more flexible and do not need to meet the extremely tight specifications required of other conveyor models.

Noise Reduction – The QR Conveyor offers a quiet operation, which helps reduce overall decibel levels in your plant and keeps workers safe.
