Helical Conveyors

Changing elevation and direction simultaneously could be tricky – but not with our helical conveyors. The ultimate answer for changing elevation and direction.

The helical conveyor design allows a product to be inclined or declined while also undergoing a direction change. Our helical curves feature the most aggressive elevation change in the industry and an ergonomic modular design that provides the industry’s tightest turning radius. The chain is completely captured by an integral side channel to maximize safety, and the bi-directional drive unit adds versatility.

Rules of Thumb

  • Max Angle 20°
  • 7° and above requires a larger centerline radius
  • Above 10° add the following extra length to the already existing 12″ bed section adjacent to the Helical Curve
    • 5.5″ for opposing curves
    • 2.75″ for a single curve
