Overhead Tripper Belt Conveyors
Waconia Manufacturing’s unique 3-way tripper uses gravity to distribute fertilizer to the right, left, or back onto the belt for distribution off of the end of the conveyor.
The Waconia Shuttle conveyor is a popular way to fill fertilizer bins. Approximately one-half the length of the warehouse, the conveyor rolls back and forth over the bins. The belt reverses direction of travel, allowing fertilizer to be discharged off either end of the conveyor. That way, any bin can be filled through a combination of rolling the conveyor and reversing the direction of belt travel. Our Shuttle conveyors are built in 18”, 24”, 30”, 36”, 42”, and 48” widths.
The overhead tripper conveyors are available in mild or stainless steel. PVC tri-rollers are utilized for low-power requirements. The conveyors are very low maintenance and provide a long life expectancy. Conveyors utilizing PVC tri-rollers are available in 18” and 24” belt widths. CEMA-rated troughing rollers are utilized with 24” belt widths and larger.
