FEECO’s steep incline conveyors transport bulk materials at inclines from 18 degrees to 90 degrees, and offer many benefits as seen below:

    • Decreased material degradation: Transfer points are eliminated through “L” and “S” shape designs. This allows for smooth, steady conveying.
    • Handling efficiency: Corrugated sidewalls reduce material spillage along the conveyor path, and cleats help eliminate material fallback.
    • Less space requirements: steeper geometric options reduce the length requirements to reach the specified elevation when compared to conventional conveyors.
    • Longer belt life: belt abrasion is reduced through constrained movement of the material.

FEECO’s conveyors are always customized to suit your bulk solids handling needs. For more information on steep incline conveyors, or additional equipment from FEECO’s bulk material handling line, contact us today!
