Gravity Chute Conveyors
Gravity chute conveyors are available from McKessock Conveyor Solutions. We offer the Safeglide Spiral Chute which enables the smooth transfer of products from one level to another. This chute offers a number of advantages including minimal cost, durability, and a design that prevents jamming. The simplicity of gravity chutes means they are reliable and offer long service life. The chutes we supply are inexpensive, easy to install, and take up very little space, especially when compared to the alternatives. In addition, they do not require supervision or controls. McKessock Conveyor Solutions is the best source for this equipment due to our experience, capabilities, and wide selection.
The Safeglide Spiral Chute features a computer-aided design that ensures materials will move through at a constant speed. In addition, the heavy duty fiberglass construction has a proprietary surface coating that is very slick and highly resistant to wear. The sliding qualities of this low friction surface are not affected by unfavorable conditions like high humidity.
The Safeglide Spiral Chute can be used in accumulation applications, as it permits self-starting of products that have been stopped in the chute. Multi-entry infeeds are also available. These infeeds allow products to enter a single chute from different floor levels or from opposite sides.
Another option available is the innovative Channel Chute. This chute is quickly becoming the leading solution for small parcels and tray mail. It offers a solution for gently moving product to a lower level while maintaining orientation. Both Safeglide Spiral Chutes and Channel Chutes have profiles constructed of fiberglass ranging from 3/8 inches to 1/2 inches thick.
