Customers are Experiencing Increased Productivity and Safety
PRAB’s Pivot Belt Conveyor with Rigidized™ belt surface prevents scrap from sticking to the belt, while exclusively designed pivoting hinges flip scrap effortlessly into your hopper. Raised pusher flights keep material moving while the seamless, one-piece pan beneath, collects oily fluids to reduce housekeeping and keep workers safe and more productive.
