Tray Handling Conveyor

Bolt-together construction makes Packaged Goods Conveyors a competitive and economical solution.  The conveyors are also available in painted mild steel construction or stainless steel for corrosion protection (non-sanitary design).  The conveyors are provided with open top frame construction utilizing 11 gauge inverted “L” shape side frames with optional inspection/clean out slots. Although acceptable by ASME B20.1-2009, please consult internal corporate safety standards for clean out acceptability.


Wear and Chemical Resistance

CLE’s 11002 Series Conveyors feature UHMW-PE wear strips with either UHMW channel and stainless steel backing or “Tee” rail style UHMW with stainless steel sheath depending on the size and application.  UHMW offers excellent wear characteristics, a wide range of chemical resistance usually used for cleaning, and a low coefficient of friction for reduced operating loads.  For certain high speed conveyors, Can Lines Engineering may use Nylatron to handle the larger dynamic loading with high speeds.  Additionally, we can provide other high performance plastics on special requests.


Drive Options for Packaged Goods Conveyors

There are several standard options for drive choices for CLE’s Packaged Goods Conveyors. For most applications we will recommend using a shaft mounted, high efficiency helical-bevel gear-motor with a hollow bore.  These units can be supplied with premium efficient, inverter-duty motors and a variety of surface protection options to meet environmental requirements. 

Can Lines Engineering can also provide inexpensive worm gears with premium efficient motors but high inefficiencies will occur. 

Motorized pulleys provide a very streamlined design for most applications.  For further options or special requests, please contact our Engineering Department.


Guide Rails for Packaged Goods Conveyors

Can Lines Engineering  offers standard and custom guide rails to cover a wide range of products.  Our most economical guide offering is single or double fixed guide rails utilizing UHMW “tee” rails with a metal sheath backing.  CLE can also provide adjustable, tool-less adjustable, and pneumatic guide rail systems.


Floor Supports

For maximum value, CLE provides formed angle floor supports with adjustable feet and anchor holes.  To meet our customer’s needs, tubular supports with levelers can be provided when requested.  Ceiling hangers can also be provided for elevated locations when required.
