Multi-Conveyor, Winneconne, Wis., built a stainless-steel, sanitary flighted incline conveyor to elevate inconsistently sized cuts of a raw food product on a homogeneous urethane belt.

Also known as a Z-shaped incline, these conveyors are used when unpackaged, loose or bulk product need to be inclined in a small footprint. These conveyors replace traditional bucket elevators and offer improved sanitation, lower maintenance and additional flexibility.

Urethane Volta belting boats 3-inch tall flights on 6.25-inch centers, and 4-inch tall corrugated sidewalls to consistently control product through both the 65-degree nose-up and 65-degree nose over.

A take-up is located on each end of the system, allowing the belt to move in a seamless continual motion. V-guided hold-down rollers can be moved into or out of position for cleaning or maintenance.
