Used Incline/Cleated Equipment
Incline cleated belt feeders are designed feed bulk solid items such as caps or parts. Incline cleated belt feeders are designed with an inclined conveyor belt with cleats which conveys the product up to the conveyor to a pre-determine discharge height. Bulk solid product is contained within the hopper of the incline cleated belt feeder. As the cleats pass through an opening in the bottom of the hopper, product falls between the cleats and is carried up the conveyor frame by the cleated conveyor belt. The cleated conveyor belt wraps around the conveyor frame at the top of the incline cleated belt feeder at which point the product held between the lugs drops from the top of the inclined cleated feeder due to gravity. Incline cleated belt feeders are often used to feed sorting equipment such as sorting bowls.
