Vertical Conveyor Systems

Vertical conveyors are one of the best solutions for transporting materials between floor levels. These systems are often chosen to save space in areas where square footage is in short supply.

Easily Move Materials Upward & Downward

Waiting for a regular elevator to move materials can create downtime. Employees physically carrying products or equipment on the stairs can risk injury. Vertical conveyors solve both problems while handling multiple materials, including (and not limited to):

  • Agricultural products
  • Moving boxes
  • Containers
  • Packages
  • Bags
  • Trays and pallets

Types of Vertical Conveyor Systems

Not all warehouses are the same, which means they need custom solutions to move materials. Depending on the situation, vertical conveyors can be heat and chemical resistant as well as made of stainless steel. Some common types include:

  • Bucket conveyors
  • Vertical reciprocating conveyors
  • Vertical screw conveyors
  • Vertical conveyor lifts
  • Spiral conveyors

Bucket Conveyors

Bucket conveyors are built for moving high volumes of material yet to be packaged for shipping. These systems move everything from produce to pharmaceuticals.

Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRCs)

VRCs are sometimes referred to as freight elevators or industrial lifts. Since these lifts are devoted only to materials, they do not have to abide by elevator codes designed for passengers. Vertical reciprocating conveyors can make for quick movement of a variety of materials, both upwards and downwards.

Other Types of Vertical Conveyors

Spiral conveyors often use belts and rollers. While spiral conveyors are used for a variety of materials, vertical screw conveyors are best for moving bulk materials as they continue through warehouses.

Save Money & Free Up Storage Space

Not only do these vertical systems reduce downtime and the threat of workers’ compensation payouts, but they reduce the need for space. Larger, horizontal systems take up more floor space ultimately costing more money.
