What Are The Benefits of Conveyor Systems?

If your recycling operation currently has a conveyor system, you likely know how much of an added benefit that they can provide to your organization. Rather than relying on human labor to move recyclables, conveyor systems allow for the movement of large amounts of recyclables with little to no effort. In short, a properly designed conveyor system will allow your employees to avoid burnout while maximizing the efficiency of your operation. Below, we have listed a few of the many benefits that our conveyor system can provide.

  • Conveyor systems with an incline can be used to move materials, both large and small, upward or downward from the main sorting line.
  • Conveyor systems can be used in countless ways to reduce the strain of loading, offloading, and carrying items.
  • Conveyors can be modified for use as a loading and unloading mechanism. In doing so, the need for labor and machinery becomes less necessary — saving your organization money.
  • The movement and speed of a conveyor system can be adjusted to meet the pace of any pre-existing infrastructure within your facility.

What Conveyor Systems Do We Manufacture?

After manufacturing material-handling systems for over three decades, you begin to learn what conveyor systems are benefiting your customers most. Because of this, we have refined our conveyor production to two main types of conveyors. In our experience, the two most efficient conveyor systems are drag chain belt conveyors and slider belt transfer conveyors. Learn more about each material handling system below.

Drag Chain Belt Conveyors

Drag chain belt conveyors are arguable one of the best material handling systems to use for moving bulk material from one point to another. That said, what makes drag chain conveyor systems so special is their ability to be modified to meet the unique needs of any organization. The design, layout, size, and power of a drag chain belt conveyor will influence the efficiency and longevity of the conveyor if manufactured correctly.

Slider Belt Transfer Conveyors

Slider belt transfer conveyors are designed to be an integral part of any recycling operation’s infrastructure. At Karl Schmidt Mfg. Inc., our slider belt transfer conveyors are specially designed to transfer, sort, separate, or load MSW, cardboard, comingles, and recyclable mixtures. Each slider belt can be custom made to fit and operate functionally within your operation. To learn more about our slider belt transfer conveyors, click here.
