Troughing Idler Conveyor

A troughing idler conveyor has an angled belt design operating on top of idling rollers in order to provide a trough for the belt to carry bulk materials. This conveyor type is best suited for transporting abrasive materials in loose or bulk form for a variety of packing, construction, and mining applications.

Selecting the Right Conveyor

  • The troughing idler conveyor includes unique designs for both the belt and the idlers. First, the construct of the angled belt creates a durable trough that reduces the risk of material spillage and increases the productivity, safety, and load-bearing ability of the conveyor.
  • As for the idlers, they consist of cylindrical rods that extend under and along the conveyor belt. Each idler is comprised of a central idler roller that has a fixed width and two or more wing idlers located on its side.

Common Applications

  • Troughing idler conveyors are ideal for conveying loose or bulk materials within scrap yards and mining applications, including cement, coal, sand, gravel, and salt.
  • The raised edges of the trough belt guarantees that dirt is kept away from the sensitive motor and internal parts, making this type of conveyor an excellent choice for handling fill and other very dirty produce.

Connecting with an Engineer

  • While the troughing idler conveyor is particularly suitable for high-load applications, our Power Pack engineers will focus on addressing the specific needs of your industry and application.
  • Every troughing conveyor allows the operator to change the angle of the wing idlers anywhere from 15 degrees to 45 degrees. In turn, this modifies the depth of the trough, giving the operator more control over the product that is moving through the conveyor.
