ASGCO’s® Lift Bed - Diverter Plow Improves Bulk Material Handling
Many situations in bulk handling require material to be separated to different transfer points or receptacles. ASGCO®’s new Lift Bed – Diverter Plow is specifically designed to handle that task, and at a more cost-effective than a traditional tripper conveyor.
The Lift Bed – Diverter Plow™ is a pneumatically operated impact bed that lifts the conveyor belt from full trough to zero (0°) into a stationary diagonal plow. The urethane diagonal plow, which includes two Spring-shoc™ tensioners, enables the lift bed to apply the proper tension and not pinch or damage the belt. This increases production and allows the belt to experience a limited amount of stress, eliminating the opportunity for premature wear and stretching.
