Gripper Side Grip Elevation Conveyor: Multi-Conveyor

Multi-Conveyor recently built a mild steel, S-style, side grip elevator – or Gripper – designed to transport filled, capped bottles of oil, to an over seven-foot elevation from infeed to discharge.

Grippers are comprised of two parallel conveyors mounted side-by-side, with the Neoprene gripper bulb chains facing one another. Grippers can elevate, lower or buffer product in between infeed and discharge conveyors. Products as fragile as an egg are conveyed with complete control during the elevation, curve and transport process. Grippers commonly come in both C-Style and S-Style configurations.
