Loose Container Conveyor

Loose Container Conveyor

Empty and Full Containers

The Loose Container Conveyor serves as the link between individual machine centers, it’s the backbone to performance. The width of the conveyor, number of transfers, guide rail design and amount of accumulation are critical to how your equipment runs.

Loose Container Conveyor Features

Transport

Descon takes advantage of the latest developments in conveyor chain technology so that you see the benefits. These include low friction factors, flatness and wear characteristics.

Features

  • Suitable for cans, glass, and PET, PVC, HDPE bottles, round and non-round.
  • Available in single chain or mass conveying.
  • Parallel, Dynamic DTS or S-Box type transfers.
  • Varying chain types including plastic modular belting and stainless steel slat chains.
  • Universal splice plates and integrated stainless-steel leg supports.
  • Integrated electrical wireways.

Accumulation

Accumulation is vital to the success of any well-running line. By absorbing product during downstream stoppages, more critical machine centers can continue producing, therefore improving your bottom line.

Benefits

  • Production continues during downstream stoppages.
  • Suitable for cans, glass and plastic bottles, round and non-round.
  • Provides significant accumulation with minimum floor space.
  • Simple synchronization between critical machine centers.
  • FIFO (first-in, first-out) accumulation or FILO (first-in, last-out) accumulation.

Pressureless Single-Filer

Our Pressureless Single Filers singulate containers from mass at high speeds, eliminating the possibility of a downstream shutdown.

Benefits

  • Suitable for cans, glass and plastic bottles, round and non-round.
  • 100% down bottle evacuation.
  • High speeds:
    • Cans up to 1,700 cpm
    • Full PET and glass up to 1,400 bpm
    • Empty PET up to 1,000 bpm
  • Simple changeover between container formats
