Nerak circulating conveyors are designed for the continuous vertical handling of unit loads with loading and unloading points at various levels (paternoster principle). These systems are used mainly in large dispatch centres with many infeed and discharge levels.
The continuously circulating system uses the Nerak rubber block chain from which platforms are suspended. The load is fed in on the way up and discharged on the way down.
There are two distinct types of system, depending on whether the unit loads have identical or varying dimensions. The type of conveyor determines the design of the loading and unloading stations and thus the throughput. For example, for loads of identical dimensions it is possible to achieve throughputs of up to 1200 units per hour.
The circulating vertical conveyors are fabricated in welded sections to facilitate ease of transport and erection on site.
The structure is designed to be self-supporting, including the drive and all feed and discharge stations.
The conveyor is completely enclosed with perforated sheet cladding, with maintenance doors at the feed and discharge stations.
