Metalworking’s most versatile belt conveyors for transporting a broad range of materials.
More versatile than other types of conveyors. PRAB steel belt conveyors can be used to handle any type of wet or dry metal scrap- from bushy material and die scrap, to chips and turnings.
This heavy-duty scrap conveyor can process wet or dry metal material in any volume and is available in a wide variety of paths.
Image Right: Auto lube systems are designed to automatically supply a small quantity of clean grease or oil to bearings on a regular basis-improving bearing performance and eliminating maintenance required for manual greasing.
PRAB Steel Belt Conveyors are available in 2.5″ to 9″ pitch and are designed to convey a wide range of metal scrap ranging in weight and bulk density. It’s capable of combining horizontal and elevating movements. Heavy-duty side frames, track and wear bars keep the belt on track shift after shift.
Belt options available to meet differing applications include:
Configurations available include:
