The Belt Conveyor



Looking for an inexpensive and simple method of moving products from one point to another? If so, belt conveyors are an option worth looking into.

Belt conveyors are simple–a flat, moving belt, a single drive that is used to move a variety of product sizes, shapes and weights effectively for long lengths. Belt conveyors are great for moving products through elevations, for example from floor to floor. Heinrich Brothers has installed numerous belt conveyors, up to a 25-foot change in elevation.

There are two types of belt conveyors: Incline Belt Conveyors which go from low to high; and Decline Belt Conveyors with go from high to low.

Belt conveyors are available in custom widths. Standard belt conveyor widths are 12 to 72-inch. Lengths are typically five to 100 feet in length.

We specialize in designing and integrating custom conveyor solutions to meet your needs—and budget.

The basics models of belt conveyors follow. Each belt conveyor type has a PDF schematic and manual for download.
