General Conveyor Series Overview

Fluent RC Series of Conveyors are engineered with industry leading 3D CAD software and manufactured with precision (tolerances and standards). This series comes in standard and custom widths and lengths. Standard roller chain conveyor widths include 36″, 48″ 60”, 72″, 84”, 96”, 108” & 120”. Lower Horizontal lengths come in standard sizes of 10 feet, 15 feet 20 feet, 25 feet and 30 feet as well as any custom lower horizontal length to best match project specifications. The incline angles range from 25 degrees to 35 degrees depending on the application, material, baler requirements and building specifications. The standard chain sizes include 3 inch rollers with a 6 inch pitch or a 5 inch roller with a 9 inch pitch. The frame is made of 3/16″ steel rectangular tubing, 1/4″ steel pan side walls, 3/16” steel rectangular tubing for supports & 25# – 30# rail track for chain support. The RC Series is MIG welded with certified welders and validated with a seamless QA process for overall structural integrity.

The Fluent RC Conveyors are sand blasted prior to paint, connected with grade 8 hardware (resist corrosion and increase strength), assembled and test run for over 10 hours prior to shipping. This series features industry leading components which include: pvc & rubber combo belts, apron pan belts, double beaded apron pan, z pan belts, hinged steel belts, motors, sprockets, oilers, cleats (2″, 3″, 4″ & 5″), side guards, bottom guards, e-stops and more.

This heavy duty series of conveyor is engineered and manufactured for the most extreme applications: wet, dry, high temps, e-waste, OCC, ONP, MSW, single stream, C&D, mining, biofuel, scrap, tire, stover, bagasse and more.

* We offer custom roller chain conveyors to meet the specific requirements for a wide variety of specialized applications (metering conveyors, high impact loading conveyors, reversing conveyors, etc.).

**This series of conveyors is often found feeding shredders, granulators, pulpers, balers and sort stations for industry leading manufactures like Vecoplan, SSI, Granu-Tech, Ameri-Shred, Harris, International Baler, American Baler, Excel, Marathon, Balemaster, G-Baler, Sierra, IPS and more.

Engineering & Manufacturing Specifications

Engineering Specs

The Fluent RC Series of conveyors are engineered with the latest versions of the Solidworks family of engineering tools (CAD, Simulation). The Solidworks tools are paired with a very experienced engineering team that has provided some of the industry’s most robust conveyor solutions. The RC Series are engineered closely with the production team to ensure the processes from engineering to manufacturing meets tight tolerances, QA validation and project deadlines.

Manufacturing Specs

The Fluent RC Series of conveyors have been tested, validated and approved to meet the quality tolerances our engineering team requires. Our production team has over 100 years of combined experience paired with a facility of over 85,000 square feet. The core facility has a paint booth, 40,000 square feet of dedicated assembly, 6 – welding stations, CNC fabrication equipment, 10 – overhead cranes and more.

Preventative Maintenance

The Fluent RC Series of conveyors, like all roller chain belt conveyors, requires up-front adjustments and maintenance to ensure the longevity of the conveyor and conveyor components.

Core adjustments and maintenance:

-Visual inspection (all components & safety guarding)

-General removal of debris

-Maintain chain oilers

-Grease bearings

-Change gear case oil

-Chain tensioning
