Belt conveyors are the most commonly used powered conveyors
because they are the most versatile and the least expensive. Product is
conveyed directly on the belt so both regular and irregular shaped objects,
large or small, light and heavy, can be transported successfully. These conveyors
should use only the highest quality premium belting products, which reduces
belt stretch and results in less maintenance for tension adjustments. Belt
conveyors can be used to transport product in a straight line or through
changes in elevation or direction.
