  • Gravity Wheel Conveyor:

    This conveyor has wheels which rotate independently, allowing excellent tracking of packages.

    Packages to be transported on this conveyor should have smooth, firm bottom surfaces to ensure satisfactory operation.

    Items may be manually pushed along this conveyor or the conveyor may be inclined to allow the force of gravity to move the items.

    Gravity Roller Conveyor:

    This conveyor offers good support for the bottom surfaces of the items to be transported.

    Items with irregular surfaces, such as drums or older cartons and boxes, or items too loosely bagged to transport well on gravity wheel conveyors, can all be transported on the gravity roller conveyor.

    These items will move smoothly as long as the bottom surface of the item does not conform to the shape of the rollers.

    Items may be manually pushed along this conveyor or the conveyor may be inclined to allow the force of gravity to move the items.



    We provide a full line of curves, stands, gates, supports & other accessories for gravity conveyors.
