Conveyors – Skatewheel Conveyors

Skatewheel Conveyors are the most economical and light weight conveyor for non powered application. Steel or aluminum skatewheels are mounted on axles to support and move product. The light weight construction of these conveyors makes them ideal for loading trucks with the conveyor set up on removable stands or supports. Skatewheel conveyors are good for items with a smooth, flat bottom. Majority of products will convey with a minimum amount of pitch. Skate wheel conveyors flow better than roller conveyor.
