Power Pivoting Conveyor (PPC)
This device is used for the transfer of product from one conveyor to a perpendicular conveyor while maintaining load orientation. Device includes a fixed Pivot Point which can be located at either end or in the center along one side of the device. This device can also be used as a "Gateway" to provide fork truck access through a conveyor system. The unit is an integral part of a Power Live Roller Conveyor.
Transition Sections: Provided to match the adjoining Conveyors' width. Sections can be Non-Power or Chain-Assisted by the adjoining C&M Powered Conveyor.
Pivot Post: Floor Mounted with Heavy Duty Flange Mount Bearings.
Support Wheels: 6'' diameter monothane tread wheels which ride on the floor surface. Surface must be smooth and level to ensure proper operation and to prolong wheel life.
Rotational Drive System: One (1) 8'' diameter rubber drive wheel (90 Durometer) which is mounted to a Pivoting Drive Base with a captivated Air Mount to compensate for any floor variations. Unit is powered by a 1 hp brakemotor which is totally enclosed, industrial rated, 1750 rpm motor, mounted to an in-line reducer. Reducer is grease filled and maintenance free for a 2-year period.
Safety Features: Device is equipped with a horn and flashing light that is activated during the rotation of the device. Internally mounted photo-eye sensors insure positive load placement before rotation.
Controls: Available with Manual, Automatic, or OEM Controls. All rotational positioning is performed through proximity sensors mounted to the base of the device. Conveyor includes photo-eye activated controls for both ends.
Power: Floor mounted mast with multiple conductor cable which connects to the pivoting base of the unit.
Preassembly: Unit is wired at the factory and (if applicable) plumbed to a junction box.
Device Height: 12'' TOR minimum with extensions available for other heights.
Rotational Speed: 30, 45, or 60 fpm available. Variable Speed Drive is also available as an option.
Capacity: 5,000 lbs. maximum
Voltage: System Voltage is 230/460 volt, 3 phase, 60 hertz with 115 volt, single phase control voltage.
