SORTING WITH BELT CONVEYORS
Boxes may be sorted from a slider bed or a roller bed.
SLIDER BED CONVEYORS:
ROLLER BED CONVEYOR:
Belt conveyors are usually best where we must
divert a package to a specific location in an exact time frame.
Since there is less package slippage on a belted unit, timing
can be more exact.
In the example below, the Hytrol ProSort 50/50
pusher is being used with the Hytrol Model SB. This pusher has
been specifically designed for use with this conveyor.
Pushing a box off a conveyor belt may affect the belt
tracking. When pushing boxes over 15 to 20 lbs., a roller bed
conveyor should be used with a special smooth surface (low
coefficient of friction) belt which allows a box to slide off
easily. The bottom side of this belt must have a high
coefficient of friction to prevent it from sliding laterally
across the rollers.

Hytrol's Model ProSort SC series of
sorters consist of a belt conveyor fitted with divert modules
that are powered from the belt. The divert modules contain high
friction wheels that pivot in order to direct cartons from the
main belt conveyor onto take-away lines. The ProSort SC1
diverter can direct products to take-away lines located either
on the right or left side of the conveyor while the ProSort SC2
diverter can direct products to both the right and left sides of
the conveyor. Take-away lines may be either gravity skatewheel
or powered rollers. Spurs may be slave driven from the diverter
when the application requires powered take-away rollers but
where the additional drives on the spurs would not be cost
