Conveyor sections

The modular plastic belt conveyor in three widths 322, 424 and 626 mm can be built as straight sections or in S,
U or L-shape with 30, 45, 60 or 90 horizontal bend, or combinations thereof.
Vertical bends are available in 5 and 15.
Note! A combination of horizontal and vertical curves are
not recommended.

Chain guidance at end of conveyor
The idler end unit is used to guide the chain from the
return side of the conveyor up to the top side with a min-
imum of friction. The chain is guided by three or more

ball bearings.
