Multi-Conveyor recently built a mild steel "S-style" side grip elevator, designed to transport filled and capped bottles of oil to an over 7 foot elevation from infeed to discharge.
Grippers are comprised of two parallel conveyors mounted side-by-side, with the Neoprene gripper bulb chains facing one another. Grippers can elevate, lower or buffer product in between infeed and discharge conveyors. Products as fragile as an egg are conveyed with complete control during the elevation, curve and transport process.
Hinged, polycarbonate personnel safety guards were mounted safety and easy access. A digital hand wheel can easily adjust and track the gripper width by job or product. The white link indicates where the base roller chain connecting point is located for disassembly or maintenance.
Grippers commonly come in both C-Style and S-Style configurations. Visit https://www.multi-conveyor.com/multi-media-center/videos/emodule/602/egallery/3 for more info.
