Lifted conveyors form a group of devices widely used in various internal transport systems. It is a group of devices enabling change of elevation during work.
It can include all types of conveyors:
- chain conveyors;
- roll conveyors;
- strip conveyors;
- belt conveyors.
- combination of two transport lines;
- change of transport direction;
- or change of orientation.
Lifted conveyors can also be used as separate devices enabling:
- or tilting transported elements.
Types of lifted conveyors:
- Combinations — conveyors which on a small surface combine two transport lines or change transport direction.
- Tipplers — devices for changing orientation of transported cargo through tilting or toppling.
- Tilting conveyors — is a group of conveyors that tilt and lift one side so that one transport line can go smoothly through another one or connection of transport lines running from a higher or lower level.
- Elevators — horizontally transporting conveyors. Used mainly for lifting and lowering loads. Elevators can combine two or more transport line levels — depending on the needs and spatial conditions.
- Lifting — conveyors enable changing the transport line working height. They can also be used for feeding and lowering transported materials directly to receiving devices.
Conveyor lifting methods:
- on eccentrics;
- on cams;
- using lever mechanism;
- or chain slings.
- using pneumatic bellows;
- using actuators;
- using pneumatic.
- using hydraulic actuators.
