The Multi-Conveyor single-filing conveyor uses gentle vibration to settle and separate individual pieces of bulk food products. Vibration also assists in placing products in a single file, while a nonpowered right angle changes product orientation. The unit achieves rates of 180 to 200 pieces per min.

The Multi-Conveyor stainless-steel overhead conveyor accepts single-file product from a discharging depalletizing machine. The empty containers then decline down a 10-in.-wide, 125- degree decline rotary drum spiral conveyor to a jar-discharge pushing device. Multiple interconnected drum spirals can be placed in a series.

Controlled by photo-eyes, proximity switches, solenoids and filter regulators, the Multi-Conveyor single-lane, off-line accumulation Alpine-style conveyor is suitable for a variety of sizes of bottled products. Accumulated product is staged and redirected toward downstream equipment when upstream product flow is halted, allowing the accumulator to empty. Then, when triggered, pneumatic clamps extend and divert product traffic directly into the vertical accumulator.
The Multi-Conveyor Slim-Fit hygienic product transfer conveyor has a tool-less pin-pull approach that allows an operator to remove the belt quickly for routine maintenance. The unit includes a center drive design that keeps balance in the system and uniform depth or width on each end, a V-guided end pulley, a flip-up end tail that maintains tension and tracking, and a washdown stainless-steel frame. The conveyor is available with optional casters.
Designed to rotate bag-in-box cartons from wide edge to narrow edge, the Multi-Conveyor Upender stainless-steel table top system uses gravity with minimal guidance for reorientation. A single-lane, slave-driven timing belt supports cartons on the right hand side, allowing the bottom of the cartons to rotate down counterclockwise to a 4 1/2 in.-wide table top conveyor, while an adjustable deflector plate at the carton rotation point and adjustable stainless-steel guide rail brackets provide product control.
The Multi-Conveyor dual-lane conveyor system is made up of 4 conveyor sections joined by seamless transfers. The straight running 24-ft. long conveyor has 2 lanes with a center rail that keeps individual trays separated, while a 3-ft. long gapping conveyor with friction top plastic belting pulls a gap at an elevation of 30 in. to the top of the conveyor. The 9-ft. long inclining conveyor elevates the trays from 30 to 42 in. to raise them to the proper height for hand packing into corrugated cases. Two gravity roller conveyors run the full length of the 20-ft.
