Slat Chain Conveyors
Plastic Slat Chain Conveyors
These are predominantly used in the food and pharmaceutical industries where rapid conveyor speed is required and also accuracy is very important. Plastic slats are also ideal for industries where hygiene is of the utmost important as they can be regularly washed down and disinfected.
Plastic slat chain conveyors are ideal where lighter products are being conveyed. They can ideally be used in the food industry where containers for products such as yoghurt, ice cream or sauces can be conveyed along, through filling machines and then either direct to packaging areas or straight to freezers or cool storage areas. These types of conveyors will also allow for accummulation of the products.
Steel Slat Conveyors
Slat chain conveyors with steel slats are usually used where the conveyor needs to have a more robust design, for instance when handling heavier products than a plastic slat conveyor would be capable of. They can even be used in heavier industries, such as the automotive industry where car parts are required to be conveyed or in other heavier industrial situations. Generally if the slat conveyor is to be used in dirty or wet conditions the slats would need to be stainless steel, as the life expectancy would be a lot longer due to rust etc with mild steel.
