The Model 25-CREZD, from Hytrol, is a heavy-duty chain-driven live roller conveyor designed for zero pressure accumulation of products (i.e., pallets, drums, containers, etc.). The conveyor accumulates the products in zones, and releases them upon request.
Model 25-CREZD features Hytrol’s EZDrive System, a shaft-mounted gearmotor located near the centre of each zone, as well as its EZLogic Accumulation System, which, as the company describes it, “combines the sensing accuracy of photo-electronics with discrete electronic logic control without the use of a PLC or pneumatic logic components.” Adjustable HSN-type floor supports are also available.
The conveyor has a 300-pound maximum load per linear foot of conveyor if supports are on 10-foot centres, and a maximum of 1,000 pounds if supports are on five-foot centres. The maximum unit load is 4,000 pounds per zone with four-inch roller centres, and #40 chain. Zones longer than six feet, however, may require an additional floor support depending on product load.
