Roller conveyors can be an essential part of whole tire feed systems. They are commonly used to provide zoned accumulation and tire separation refinement. One development has been the Belt Driven Live Roller (BDLR) Conveyor, which utilizes a serpentine belt drive system instead of a chain drive system. This eliminates the need to lubricate the chains and sprockets. This also allows for the roller conveyor to run at higher speeds and endure millions of starts and stops with minimum maintenance requirements. In addition to the serpentine belt drive, several other improvements have been made to make our roller conveyors stand out as the best choice for whole tire feed systems in cement plants and other harsh duty applications.
