A Belt Drive System Built for
Years of Service.
Energy efficient, 90 Volt D.C. electronically variable-speed (0-40 fpm) drive motors are standard features on all Gates conveyors. These totally enclosed, fan cooled motors provide great pulling capacity while low voltage increases operator safety.
Belt assembly and simple slat replacement requires no tools.
Stainless steel drive sprockets are keyed and held to shafts with double locking set screws.
Solid stainless steel shafting with sealed-for-life bearings that require no lubrication.
Fully enclosed stainless steel continuous return channels with UHMWP return strips keep the return belt running straight and true.
Closed slider pan design keeps waste debris from passing to the belt below and also keeps waste build-up and odors to a minimum.
Half-hard stainless steel wear strips protect the slider pan from belt wear. On curved conveyors, we use super-duty synthetic glides on the insides of the turns for minimal friction.
All water area components are made of stainless steel, and systems feature several belt wash system options, depending on your needs.
Gates Conveyors: Safe by Design.
All our conveyor systems conform with National Electrical Code and U.L. File# E70237, and Joint Industry Conference Standards.
A stainless steel sensor bar assembly instantly stops the conveyor when touched by the operator, eliminating pinch points and serious injury.
When the access panel to the drive housing is removed, all moving parts are still concealed by a stainless steel chain guard cover to further protect the operator from injury.
The power transmission system is totally enclosed, with a 90V D.C. drive system to ensure operator safety.
All electric control enclosures are fabricated in fiberglass to eliminate condensation inside the enclosure and carry the UL listing. Plus, Gates conveyor systems only require a 120V single phase, 20 amp electric circuit.
