The TR3-Series of conveyor belts are designed to move materials from one level of a building to another. While our other belt series are primarily used to handling loose materials, like dirt, sand, and gravel, the TR3-Series is used mainly for boxes, containers, bags, and sacks. If you need to move bulky objects, either small or large, from one story to another, these belt conveyors are the material movers that you need.
The flat-top slider beds of the TR3-Series conveyors are available in 16 and 20 inch widths. The belt is made of two ply black 150 belting and is available in either a rough or smooth surface style. The standard conveyor lengths range from 10 feet up to 28 feet in two foot increments and a 31 foot model is also available. If you need a custom length for your application, Redline Systems can work with you to build the conveyor that exactly suits your needs. The frame of the conveyor is constructed of durable 7/8 in diameter tubing.
Because TR3-Series material handling conveyors primary use is moving bulky materials from one level to another, the usual power plants supplied are either an electric motor or a hydraulic motor. When you choose the electric motor for your belt you will find several options available. Several voltage packages are available, including 220 and 440 volt 3 phase power. A variable frequency drive can supply the motor with power and gives you the capability to adjust the speed of the conveyor to match the type and size of the material being moved. This will also allow all your workers to adjust the speed for safe, ergonomic offloading. An On/Off switch and a switch with a forward position, neutral position, and reverse position can be provided. You will be able to move your product in either direction, upstairs for storage or downstairs for shipping.
Hydraulic controls can provide for variable speed capabilities as well as control over belt direction. An emergency on/off valve at the discharge end can provide a safety feature for workers that are unloading the material on the upper level. Other valves in the hydraulic system can provide various other functions if needed.
The TR3-Series belt conveyor can also be fitted with some of our line of optional accessories to further enhance is operation and function. For example, you can have 4 inch cleats attached at any location on the belt to facilitate moving bulky materials on steeper inclines. Hoppers can be used, either attached directly or free standing, to direct material onto the belt. Check with Redline systems for more information about these and other options that are available.
